This Year's Tree

The holidays have been busy. But, somehow, I manage to make time for the creation of my non-typical Christmas tree. This year, she was focused around a dress form, and the theme of an angel. So, here is the basic progress.

Start with draping some muslin for a skirt... then, add some batting.

Then, add a outdoor screening for the skirt.

about halfway done...

Now, making the wings with my students who came for dinner. Arturo, Anna, and Caroline.

Finished in daylight
Finale... Christmas Morning with my kids.
