“Charlotte, would you sit by the tree on the new Christmas tree skirt?” She obliged! My one Christmas project this year was for my daughter-in-law Maggie and her husband Matt and baby Charlotte; they moved into a house in Rochester, Minnesota, this year.
The skirt is a crazy-quilt patchwork of newer and older scraps, including sections of a vintage holiday apron and pieces of a crazy quilt made of men’s suiting fabric from a few generations back in my family.
This is baby Charlotte’s great-great-grandmother Edith.
My husband Mike is Pop; this is a piece of a worn-out work shirt.
There’s fabric from a tie from Charotte’s great-grandfather Condict.
I had some toile and I once thought it would be amusing to embroider a hoodie onto one of the overly precious character; another boy got an embroidered hockey jersey.
It was a fun project and of course I could have taken weeks longer to add much more embroidery and embellishment. But Christmas is coming and their tree was up. Merry Christmas!
