How did this happen? I have three Christmas tree skirts in the making. After trudging down to the local JoAnn fabric store and selecting the battings, I got busy. My son needs a skirt for his tree, and I needed a new one for mine and then there was that irresistible small paper pieced one that wanted my time. I’d made it before and given it to my daughter, but always wanted one for myself.
It is 50% pieced and I hope to finish this weekend.
My son’s tree skirt is very traditional. I wanted to embellish with wide rick rack and jingle bells, but I hesitate. Anything that makes it more attractive to his dogs will also mean its demise! I plan to tie it off and bind it in red tape. Fingers crossed – it may survive Christmas 2015. One never knows.
My favorite snowman ornament – he stands atop my machine and keeps me company while I sew. I have a real love for all Christmas globes.
