When I first saw Terrye French’s new book, The Holiday Painted Pear, I knew I had to dig through my stash of wood and paint something, if not all of her designs! I needed to start somewhere so I chose three designs, “Ol’ North Pole” on page 9, “Party Tree Bag” on page 12, and “Home” on page 18 of Terrye’s book. I chose four of the “Ol’ North Pole” designs and put them on an old note holder I have had for years, the “Party Tree Bag” fits perfectly on our Framed Plaque, and “Home” fits nicely on our Iron Recipe Card Holder. I already have my patterns traced, so this weekend in between working in the yard and laundry, I am going to sit down at my paint table and paint Christmas, which I can’t wait to do. I’ll let you know how things are going and what I get finished.
