For years I have wanted to make a ''Christmas Tree Skirt"...
I have a few patterns to do this project........
that have been collected over the years as well.
So with only a week to Christmas whats a girl to do!
but sew day and night to achieve it this Christmas 2014....
nothing like a little bit of pressure on ones self even though my Christmas shopping is still to be finished hahahaha
and the Plum Pudding is yet to be made!!!!!!!!
So to the starting line I head (wink)
all traced, stuck to fabric and cut out
ironed onto the background
time for trimming
binding and buttons to be added
doesn't look to bad under there
wrap and add some pressies
I think it looks pretty AWESOME...
now I must go soak the fruit for the pudding
before I head to the hairdresser today...
finish my Christmas shopping tomorrow... well I hope too (wink)

My ''baby cousin" loves to decorate for Christmas...
she also likes to have me and my family over for
Christmas get together before Christmas
we are sort of making this a tradition, especially now that I am living closer.
Last Christmas get together I noticed her Christmas table runner was looking a little worst for wear... so I made her a newbie
I have added some hotfix crystals to some of the trees
tried to make it look a little like snow falling
I have also made her 6 Christmas placemats....
the pattern for the runner can be found
