My tree skirt is nearly finished. I'll hand stitch the binding to the back this evening and then our tree can go up. After giving this tree skirt some thought I decided to add batting and quilt a snowflake meandering design. I figured adding the batting will prevent the tree skirt from scrunging up as gifts are placed on top of it. This pattern is by All Through The Night called, "Peppermint Wreaths" and finishes 52" round. Included in the pattern is also a smaller 26" version for a table topper. (on my bucket list!)
Here'a a closer picture of the snowflake quilting and now that I'm looking at this I may add some red buttons to the center of the pinwheels.
Our neighborhood deer spent the majority of the day here in our yard yesterday. I was quite surprised to see he even feels comfortable enough to nap!
