Oh Christmas Tree

In one of my bees this month I got to make these cute triangle blocks.  We used this tutorial from FITF. 
I thought they looked like the perfect little Christmas trees.  And I need to make a few pillows for and exchange.  So I grabbed some leftover strips of Ruby from I project I had made earlier.  Threw in a few others from the scrap bin and made a long strip that I cut the triangles from.  After adding the sides on my trees, I added a trunk and made these festive Christmas pillows. 

Yesterday I finished up my shopping.  I have a few things left to wrap.  So I'm declaring today a pajama day to relax.  And enjoy all my Christmas prep.  Hope you find a few moments to relax and enjoy this special season.
