Finished, sort of

After almost three years, I have finished the applique of my christmas craft #???-- my christmas wall quilt.
I used fusible web adhesive (wonder-under) to glue all the letters and shapes on, and then blanket stitched them on the material. It was trickier than it sounds, because the green background is glossy and sparkly so the fusible adhesive didn't really stick, so as I was sewing one letter on, the next one would start to peal up.
But luckily the quilt is almost done, my fingers have now built up nice callouses for hand stitching.
