With my Christmas quilt in the shop being finished, I've started in on my next holiday project--a tree skirt. And by "started" I mean I have read the pattern 4 times and am still working through in my head what the first step will be.
I realized that for this project I was still missing some of my necessary supplies. The missing pieces just arrived today:
Yes, that is the felt I mentioned from Heather Bailey. Isn't it gorgeous? I love that it arrived all bundled up like in her photos.
And that lovely olive ric rac I picked up from the Thimble Blossoms store over on Etsy. I just love all the different shades of green in different materials that will all end up in the tree skirt.
Now I need to pick up some freezer paper. I have no idea what that is or what it will be used for exactly, but the pattern calls for it.
I'm definitely treading uncharted crafting waters over here. Wish me luck!
