Friday



Managed to work on the tree skirt today -- have it all together, although this first picture was taken after I finished the last leg, before I sewed the legs together.
The second picture was taken a few minutes ago -- the skirt is all together and the circle cut out, and I turned it over to show the back side -- didn't have enough of any one fabric I wanted to use, so used three fabrics for the backing! All the hand stitching of the seams between the legs is done; just need to bind and add the lace. Hope to get that done next week sometime. And that's been my day -- except for having a sneezing fit every minute or so, which makes it really difficult to sew!

This is beautiful! It looks kinda the same concept as log cabin blocks only diamond shape instead of squares. Neat idea.

Can't wait to see the top when allthe binding is on and the lace is added! Your tree will look beautiful! You are keeping this for yourself aren't you?

Nah, I'll probably give it to my daughter. She'll be doing Christmas at her house this year because she has all the grands, so no point in making them all pack up and drive for an hour or more. The rest of us don't have little kids, so we all go up there. I probably won't even put up the big tree this year, just put one on a table and put a few things on the mantles!

It looks so wonderful! I think it will be great with the lacy edge!

Thanks everyone. It has been fun to do and I used up a lot of old, old, Christmas fabric and some background fabric that had been lanquishing in the back of the cabinet because I couldn't figure out why I bought it or what to do with it!

Oh Joanne! It is gorgeous! I love it! I would never have imagined it would turn out so great! I really like it! I can't wait to see it all done with binding and top with hole! It is awesome!

It looks great - I like how you placed the fabrics. Hope you'll post a pic of it under the tree.
