Last night Holly and I went to my Mom's while Mike watched football. While we were there Jen stopped by to pick up a notebook wrap that I had made for her mom out of a new Kaffe Fasset print that I knew Diane would love. I still have one to go for her sister but as a Thank You, Jen gave me an Aster Manor Charm Pack and Honey Bun. I was so shocked! She didn't have to do that!!
A few days before Christmas, Mom had mentioned that she really liked the Figgy Pudding line of fabric and would really like a new tree skirt. Tonight we got the fabrics laid out just the way she liked them and next thing I knew I had figured out my strip sizes, cut the strips, sewed the strip sets and cut one of the strip sets into wedges. Before I knew it, I had a 1/3 of the tree skirt put together.
Of course, I can't visit Mom's without shoving my camera in Maggie's face. She should be happy I'm not snapping away with the flash....just getting up in her craw using super macro. Giggle. Poor Kid!
P.S. The Tree Skirt pattern is called "Treasured Tree Skirt" and it is by Linda Marcou. The 9 degree wedge ruler by Marilyn Doheny is used with it.
