No, not the tree, the tree skirt. This was a gift for Kevin and Aimee. The green print was fabric that Kevin and Aimee got during their honeymoon in India. I purchased the go-with fabrics on the trip to Mary Jo's. The backing came directly from the stash. They were thrilled to receive it especially with the fabric from their honeymoon.
Here are a couple of photos taken on Christmas day. We all gathered at Kevin and Aimee's house for their first Christmas. This year Sophia understood Christmas a bit more than she did last year.
She was fascinated with the curling ribbon. And, wow, her first bike according to Uncle Kevin.
The two turkey cooks! Or perhaps cookers of the turkey.
And this last picture -- Four Dogs and a Toddler. Kona, Homer, Cassie, Raggs and Sophia.

Great to see the tree skirt in use and photos of your celebration.
So sweet that you used their fabrics from India in the tree skirt. Makes it extra special!ReplyDelete
The tree skirt looks great with the tree. A very smart way to use their honeymoon find.ReplyDelete
Your Christmas looks like it was joyous. May you have an equally happy New Year.
