Woohoo!! I did it!!! I did it!!!!

I can't believe I made a flat fold and it turned out near perfect. I worked on this last night, it was so easy.
I had glue all over my pants, but that's beside the point, lol.
I am just so proud of myself.
There is sparklie on the branches and snowfall, but my camera didn't pick it up.

I must say it looks great. I made a flatfold recently for the first time and found that the hardest part was to get the stitched piece glued on straight. ooooo it made me so angry. Great Job!

What a cute finish, and your finishing of it into the flatfold looks great. You did a wonderful job, I'd never know it was your first time. Your new start is looking lovely too, the white looks so pretty and wintery on the blue.
