Christmas lights and UFOs

Today we put our outside Christmas lights up on the flagpole so it looks like a tree.
 Great weather for putting up outside lights.  We have been doing this for quite a few years now so its fairly routine.

I will take a picture in the dark so you can see how pretty it looks.

I have also been trying to clean up the house and get it in order.  Found this UFO - Unfinished Object and decided to finish it.  Its a white wool on a white cotton gauze with winter trees which I felted then thread painted then felted again. It had no back on it.  First I blocked it using some home made blocking boards that I made with wood, foam insulation and fabric. I wet the piece, threw it in the spin cycle to spin out the excess water then pinned it to my blocking board. This made the edges nice and flat. I then sewed a piece of muslin on the back so I can hang it up, and I did have it hanging in the window.  Now I need to finish the rest of my UFO's.
