After several years of not using the Christmas tree skirt, I realized that I can still use it, just not quite as it was intended.
It works nicely as a table cloth! I do need a larger centerpiece, which I will find this weekend.
Here’s the other side, which I used more often than the red side.
Yesterday I ordered some decorative candles to put in the windows that face the streets.
I have not decorated outside in more years than I can count, but I always liked the simple look of a single candle in each window.
I guess it reminds me of my childhood.
And speaking of childhood, I had two cousins that had babies in November and so I have been busily crocheting baby blankets in between Christmas presents.
I finished the first blanket this past weekend and it is ready to ship.
Here it is folded into quarters.
At full-size it measures 32” x 42” and is very thick, which will be good because the new baby lives in Maine and will need it to keep warm!
