New computer- new project

I finally got a new computer, an iMac, so there is a learning curve.  I think I will like it once I get used to it.

Now how about a little look at a Christmas project.  I know it is probably too late for this year, but I am putting it out here anyway.  I made this for my supervisor at work. (okay small frustration, can't find the pics to upload)

The wallhanging

Some detail shots:






This is how i felt to get it made and delivered.  Yes that is me in the cube farm (work.)


I used two AccuQuilt Go! dies to cut the trees: GO! Equilateral Triangles and GO! Isosceles Triangles Everything else was cut by hand and embellished with a wavy blade on my rotary cutter. Isn't this a fun project?  My supervisor loved it.
