I had a Christmas meltdown this week.
What is a Christmas meltdown you ask?
Well, it’s when you haven’t had any new or cute Christmas stuff in over 5 years, everything you have is crappy, dollar store quality, purchased during a time in college when you were desperate for holiday cheer - and you absolutely HATE all of it.
Seriously, I hate it all. Every bit.
Especially this felt monstrosity:
Sooo, I decided to sew a new tree skirt.
I've had these fabrics around, waiting for just the right project.
Essex Linen in natural, some apparel lace I bought on a whim from Etsy, and a red sheet I've had for a while.
You can kind of see in this picture that the lace has a bit of shine with silver metallic thread in some of the flowers.
These will make the points on large Ohio star blocks.
I also bought some new decor. I just finished setting up the tree today (pics to come). I know, pushing it kinda close. This meltdown happened a couple weeks later than would have been ideal.
Sadie enjoyed the obstacle course created by the decor boxes and mess while I was working on decorating.
Sorry about the eye glare - still learning.
