Old Christmas Project Making a Comeback

I was inspired by my friend Amy to finally finish a tree skirt I started a very long time ago. 
Like when Debbie Mumm was uber popular long ago. See....long

The tree skirt panel

I started by hand quilting little stars.....look at those tiny stitches!
How in the world did I ever do that?

Then I started outline quilting the santas.
Look at that....not out 10 minutes and there is a big ol' cat hair on it...sheesh.

I KNOW I am not going to be doing the teensy, tinsy stitching, but I am pretty sure I want to hand quilt it. All I need is some perle cotton in the right color and I'll do the big stitch quilting. 
I won't have to go overboard since it won't get heavy use. 
Yeah, that's it, big stitch it is!!

Any UFO's you pulled out of mothballs and finished?

Happy Stitching!


  1. Very cute indeed :) Those little starts are pretty ambitious! It will be adorable with perle stitching. Can't wait to see it finished!!!!

  2. I can't wait to see it under the tree! it'll be perfect!
