19 Days 'til Christmas!
It sure is sneaking up, isn't it?
So much left to do. I haven't wrapped a single gift yet. And, I have to have a gift ready for Saturday that I haven't even started yet. YIKES!
How are y'all doing? Baking, making and having a wonderful Christmas Season??
Fortunately I started this 'lil tree a long time ago so it was ready to go. Why don't I do that every year? Not that I ever think "gee whiz... I'm so bored, what can I work on?" I ALWAYS have an iron in the fire.
Several years ago these were on a segment of Martha Stewart.
This pattern is from a grandmother who makes these trees every year. I LOVE them... and since I am CRAZY about anything made with wool, it was love at first sight.
I believe Martha's were made with felt, but I used wool. I am one thrifty shopper and always look for wool blankets. Yes, as a matter of fact, I DO have a lovely white blanket that I intend to make a tree skirt from. ... But we're not gonna talk about my enormous collection things "left to do" today now are we... K? Thank you.
Anyway, Martha glued her doo-dads on... I sewed mine... easy as pie and something to keep little 'ol me busy while I watch TV, which only happens occasionally.
You're supposed to pop them over a nice bottle of wine... Nice gift, right??
Go right here if you're looking for the pattern and scoop!
It's not too late!
Huggies and Lovies!
PS.... I have an unspoken prayer request for someone near and dear to me... would you mind praying for them?? Thank you so very much.
I'm joining the Pink Saturday party at Miss Beverly's....
Why don't you go visit???? You'll be so happy you did.
