I love a white Christmas as much as anybody, but it’s the middle of August. So, a green Christmas it will be.
Which is to say – in one of my favorite Southern sayings – I am spitting distance from being done.
I finished sewing on the last of the buttons this morning. There are only a few more embellishments left to attach to the Christmas tree skirt.
The back side of the tree skirt:
Left to do:
Finish knitting the last i-cord.
Sew the i-cord in place.
Sew 8 felted stars inside of the i-cord bow.
Sew 6 star beads in place. (OK, so I cheated in the first picture. Those gold stars are just resting on the tree skirt. Sue me.)
If you’re in town next week, stop by. I’ll be decking a Christmas tree. I think Dan is more excited than I am.

Congrats!! It’s looking awesome! Can’t wait to see it done!
Oh, and when I took pics of my tree skirt for my pattern, I only set up the bottom row of branches. :) I was able to get the shots I needed without all the other branches. Just a hint if you need it!
It’s going to be a masterpiece! Love the color marbling on the i-cord.
I love the way it’s turning out, those buttons look really cute!
You amaze me.
I must say you really have a great tree skirt here, I don’t even think you will need to trim the tree, everyone will be looking under it!
Wow, you’ve really put a lot of work in it. It’s looking great!
Wow, that is awesome Christmas tree skirt you have there.
