It’s Christmas tree time, which means that you need the final touch – a new tree skirt!!! We have some ideas for you and they are all pretty simple – really! Some start with a precut, and some with pretty yardage. There’s something for everyone.
We hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and take a little time to just chill out and enjoy. Whether you’re doing all the cooking or passing that tradition down to the next generation (Yeah!!), break bread with family and/or friends and then…. nap!
See you next week…
Teri & Marty
