I don't know how many years now I've been saying that I'm going to make a tree skirt and then never have time to get to it. For some reason, once Christmas is over I just don't feel like making a tree skirt even though that's when I have the time to do it! :))
This year I M-A-D-E myself do it and I'm very happy I did. Since we changed our color scheme this year, it was easy to find this red floral sitting in my pile of home decorator fabrics. I was actually planning on giving it away, but it just seemed to be the right fabric for the job. I have collected lots of fabrics with red in them and since I don't decorate with red any longer, they are going to be given away.
If you look really closely, you'll notice that it is still pinned together (for quilting). I started the quilting and then realized I just didn't have the time to finish it and rather than not use it this year, I decided to put it under the tree the way it is. No one but you and me knows it, so who cares? Now that it's this far along, I know I'll get it quilted completely next year! For now, I'm loving it!
I'm enjoying every single minute of this Christmas/Holiday season! I hope you are too.
