Now I know you are thinking to yourself… didn't you already tell us about the tree skirt? Didn't you already show us the tree skirt? How much more tree skirt do we need to see?
Well… after taking 87 1/2 pictures of said tree skirt, I feel compelled to show a whole "montage" of tree skirt photos, just because, because I can!
Can you tell I am happy with my tree skirt?
The real reason for all this excitement I think, is that I hardly ever sew for my own home these days. Even more so, I never sew for the correct season during that season. It is one of the main down sides of being in the design business, all of us are working 6 months out at the very least and so the real seasons never seem to coincide with what is going on in the design studios. For example, all the MODA Christmas fabrics hit the store shelves in June, which means that the stores had to decide on them by January at the latest which means that the designers were submitting them the previous June and who knows when they had to start to think of the ideas for those submissions! Sometimes, its truly enough to make a person a little bit crazy!
Anyhow, when I needed a project for this current issue of Fresh Vintage and I needed it fast, the tree skirt got its opportunity. Finally! Did I already mention to you, probably several times, how many years I have been wanting a huge, simple tree skirt to cover my big, giant tree stand and catch all the needles that were falling and generally just to look pretty under my tree all month? Well, its been a long time in the coming.
So here are a few shots of my new tree skirt… humor me and pretend that you are excited to see this many shots of one piece of fabric!
