Hi all, I am selling this tree skirt if anyone is interested.
I was going to list it on Buy Swap and Sell but thought
a fellow quilter would maybe appreciate it more...
I absolutely love love love love  love it but sadly my
Little Home Sweet Home is exactly that....LITTLE.
I set my tree up in the corner between the fireplace and the
lounge and once the tree skirt is crammed in
you really cannot see it.
I wish I had room to display it to it's full potential.
So I thought it was best to sell and let someone else enjoy it.
It is made using a kit from Hatched and Patched in fabrics
from my Favourite Designer Anni Downs.
I pieced the skirt and the gorgeous Belinda Betts from
Eucalypt Ridge Quilting in Orange quilted it in the ditch around
 the blocks and used a swirly star pattern in the centre block.

The small and large corner pinwheel blocks are pieced and so
 are the block borders. The blocks are a quilted panel from
 Anni's Christmas range. It is made to a high standard.
It cost me over $130 to make and I am asking $80
(Including delivery in Australia)
The first person to comment SOLD on this post will be the
new lucky owner or maybe it will be great for gifting.
This is my little tree nook, lights on and waiting for
Miss Molly to come home and help me decorate
(She is in charge of that apparently...LOL)
I have put my tree in my Nan's old wash tub, still need to add a
big burlap bow and I know that Nan will
 be smiling down on us admiring it also...
(Just wish I hadn't been through that paint everything green
 stage and had left it in its raw state,
maybe I will strip the paint off before next year)
If I have learnt nothing in the last couple of years I have
 definitely learnt that holding onto things that aren't meant to
 be definitely don't make you happy, even if you do love them.

Until next time, Happy Stitching
