Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do! But wait.. that's not my confession.
Last year I made a tree skirt for our tree... I have a thing for pinwheels. Also.. not my confession.
So this year.. as the husband lugged in all the Christmas bins... I stood there, all giddy.. like a kid waiting to open presents. I couldn't wait to pull out my tree skirt from last year. It was the first thing I went for.
No.. It wasn't the Santa (above) that my Mom made in ceramics (circa 1976) that has been under our Christmas Tree since I was a kid... and it wasn't the handmade ornaments from my kids.. or the wall hanging my little guy made me last year with his handprints.. Nope.. now I feel really guilty!! There - that's my confession..
Look at our doggie.. The site of the tree skirt made her happy too! She could finally rest after seeing it under the tree.
So let me just say.. if you are a quilter and you haven't made a Christmas Tree skirt for your tree.. WHAT on earth are you waiting for??!! It really makes the tree. And if you have made one.. I'd love to see a picture of it! Either email me.. or leave a link in the comments so everyone can come have a look.
