I've been busy working on my Christmas tree skirt. I'm SO pleased with how it's turning out that I can't help but give you a sneak peek!
I think most members of my family have a tree skirt like this, but the original pattern had a ruffle around the edge. I decided to rebel* and do prairie points instead. I AM IN LOOOOVE! I still need to make the ties and sew the backing on but I feel giddy with joy about how good it looks. Thanks to my Grandma M for the fabric to make it.
*Apparently rebel (reb-uhl- the person who goes against tradition or whatever) is spelled the same as rebel (ree-bel- as in the ACT of being a rebel). I kept thinking they must be spelled differently, but they're not. I need to keep things like this in mind when I'm complaining about how confusing Dutch is.
