Heather, over at Books and Quilts, is having a link party for tree skirts. This reminded me that I have a tree skirt that I started a couple of years ago, but sadly, haven't finished. You know how it goes: you don't get it done before the tree goes up, then you are too busy to finish, then after Christmas, other projects take priority, since this one doesn't need to be done until next Christmas.
Here is my progress so far.
There is only one tiny problem. I can't find the backing! I know I bought it, and it is from the same fabric line as the rest of the skirt (the skirt was a kit from Connecting Threads). Everything else is in the bag, even the scraps from the blocks, but the backing is MIA. Of course, I have other fabric I can use for the back, but if I do that the backing fabric will turn up, as soon as I finish. Then, what will I do with 3 m of fabric with snowflakes on it?
Meanwhile, there is a skirt under my tree that I bought at the Boxing Day sales at Canadian Tire when the kids were little. It is looking well loved. Here it is a couple of years ago with the Christmas foster cats.
