I remember purchasing this at Walmart when my husband was buying a duck stamp!
If my memory serves me correctly in November 2004 I was 4 months pregnant...did not have a sewing machine and had a month to make a skirt. What in the world was I thinking? There is no way it was going to get done then.
Then last year I decided I was finally going to make a skirt...and I did get started...I made the pattern using a little 9th grade geometry...but I never finished it, and put it back in the attic.
FINALLY, early October 2009 I pulled out the skirt and MADE myself FINISH!! Because I don't want to make another tree skirt until I make my daughter one...I decided to put some extra love into this skirt to make it extra special and one that I won't want to replace.
I hand stitched gold thread around flowers
Added some red roping...
TA-DA it is FINISHED!!
After 5 years it is done!!
Now we are ready for the Christmas Tree!!!
