Yeah, Baby!!!

It is exactly 2:18 p.m., EST and I am absolutely giddy. I am sure that lack of sleep plays into the situation, but it is this little slice of beautiful quilting that has me on cloud nine. My tree skirt is finished!!! I found a package of periwinkle blue bias binding for around the circle. Truly it is not the best color match, but it does blend with one accent color that is in one of the blue strips. However, you won't see it while it is under the tree, so I was able to complete it and didn't have to drive over an hour away to get a package of pre-made bias binding (I didn't have any yardage to cut bias strips out of).
Of course, immediately after we put it under the tree and stepped back to admire it, both kitties had to check it out. Delilah posed for this photo.

As I like to use a narrower Christmas tree, this smaller skirt is in perfect proportion. For a project that I kind of threw together quickly, I really love how it turned out. It's not perfect, but lovely nonetheless, kind of like us people.

I wish I could afford to buy up loads more of the fabrics. I bought a jelly roll today for stockings for next year, but now I would love to have a table scarf for the coffee table, a small, Christmas wall quilt, a table runner, and, well, everything I can think of. I just love it!
Merry Christmas all!!!

I love your tree skirt and I see your cat does too! Funny how they seem to sense there is a quilt being displayed!
