Christmas decor

Is it too late to start a few Christmas decor projects? Yesterday I was looking for pine cones at the local craft stores. They all told me they were out and that I was a month late. I should have said "No. I'm just 11 months early!"  :o)
So with no pine cones....YET! I started pulling fabrics.
In my tree garland post I mentioned I wanted to make a tree skirt. Just simple squares- nothing fancy.
Then today I was at Gracie Lou's and I saw this magazine. Do you see that wreath!? I think I need to make that to match my garland too.
I pulled from my reds.

and I pulled from my greens.

I didn't have many aqua's so I picked a couple of those up while I was at Gracie Lou's.

Put it all together and I have one nice looking collection.
If I get the urge to sew I'll go for it- but no pressure. I've given myself a different end-of-the-year deadline.

I really want my hexie quilt top finished by the new year. But I tell ya, if I keep gluing papers to the RIGHT side of the fabrics it's going to take me a long time. :o)

Hi Emily!

Love the fabrics for the Christmas wreath. Can't wait to see your pictures!

P.S. I've been using the technique you taught me for hexies at Sewing Summit....soooo much faster! Thanks!
