Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

Christmas in January






Each year, the stuff I want to make for Christmas decorating and gifting is heavy on my mind; seldom on my worktable. (Which is a bed. But that's another post.) I thought I'd try a monthly 'theme'--thingy to encourage me to post regularly and get my wanna-bes done. So, I have chosen the last of the month to post what I've done/am doing/going to do for the next Christmas. So here's the first: tree skirts for the shop. I'm using a pattern I found in an older Fons and Porter. I love it because it's different-- not the usual circle. It goes together very quickly and even I can quilt it. It important to use a fabric that features a horizontal stripe to get the full effect. I embellished mine with some lace on the edge and through one line. I have started collecting appropriate fabrics to make some for the shop-- those will be in next months update as well as a new 'wanna-be'.

In my nest post I'm going to link to yours to let people know you are on here, if that's ok with you.

You know, I really love that. Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself. Now I have to have one! Thanks, lol!
