Tree Skirt

I've been sick. yuck! So sadly, no sewing has happened in my home. I am hoping i can muster the strength to throw together Hayden's shorts tonight and the tutorial for them too... but we will see. Nick actually stayed home from work because i felt so ill...

So instead, i will show you an old project. One of my favorites. I actually have all the fabric to make my own and i just have to find the time to!

This was my momma's Christmas present. She was always saying she needed a new tree skirt, and since they got a fancy new tree, i decided i HAD to make her one {my version of saying thank you}. So this is what i made. I L.O.V.E it. I found the tutorial at the Moda BakeShop. I also made the table runner for my MIL but i didn't actually get any pictures of it. Oops. I need to be better about that! My fabric is just fabric from Joann's that i liked. It turned out marvelously. I even free motion quilted it (which isn't NEARLY as scary as everyone makes it out to be!).

I will probably start mine after i finish up Halloween costumes (er... start too! :))

Thanks mom for taking these pictures for me!
And i found a picture of the skirt under the tree!
Merry Christmas in July!
