I have been working on a new Christmas tree skirt for our Christmas tree for a few weeks now. I have been collecting fabrics for this project for a while and just love the variety of grey, red and white fabrics that I used in my tree skirt. There are 360 triangles in this project! It took a while to cut out all of those triangles and lay them out in each of the six sections so that they looked random. This morning, I was up earlier than usual and found that I had time to head down to the sewing room before work to finish up the last section of the skirt and attach it to the skirt.
The skirt is large--63" from flat side to flat side. The hole in the middle is large to accommodate our Christmas tree stand. The tree was put up last week and decorated on the weekend.
The Christmas tree skirt will look better than the plastic sheet and towels I have under the tree now to save the carpet in case of leaks!
Last night, my husband and I added lights to a new 4' wreath for above our garage using zip ties to attach the lights to the frame. Tonight, we hope to put it up and admire our handiwork. Our old wreath was 19 years old and was looking a bit tired.
Next, I need to buy some backing fabric for the skirt so I can get it quilted and under the tree!
I will be linking up to Finish it Up Friday with Crazy Mom. There is a link in my sidebar.
