Tree skirt, etc



Finished the blocks for the tree skirt today. Other than making sure the centres alternate green/red and making sure there aren't too many of the same fabrics next to one another, I am NOT going to obsess about placement with this piece. After all, one could be there for days, tweaking. Which would be foolish.



And, because I need a new project (ha), here's some fabric I bought today. With the weather the way it is (completely crap) we needed a bit of a distraction - somewhere to get out to for a short while, which wasn't actually outside, so we decided on a trip to the LQS. I needed some batting as well (bought, but not shown - it looks like batting) but I couldn't resist this fabric and some toning colours. I bought a metre of the print and 5 FQs and will make something small with it. Perhaps even soon, though I would like to piece together the homespun blocks soon as well.

I like the tree skirt! and the new fabric. It's interesting that batting in the UK looks like batting in the US (VBG)!

OOO what a great tree skirt that will be!!

I LOVE your fabric. We got it in the shop a few months back and I would love to make a shirt with it. Then we got it in a purple/turquoise color way...YUM!

The tree skirt is coming along nicely...I wouldn't worry about using up days for tweaking..you've got about 360 of them before the skirt needs to be pressed into service! :o) LOL

Nice fabrics that you bought...you've reminded me I need to get some wadding..I used the last of my stash on the tree skirt I made!
