some quilty goodness

I finished some sewing just in the st. nick of time. A tree skirt, thanks to Jacquie’s tutorial over at, an improved pillow from the scraps of the tree skirt, and a quick little blanket for the couch. The microplush blanket was only $5 at Walmart, then I sewed on some ribbon to make it more festive. I also whipped up 12 festive napkins and a couple trivets, but I forgot to take pictures of them. Now, they’re in the wash covered in mashed potatoes and gravy. Anyway, it was a whirlwind, but I’m happy with my efforts. Here are some photos.

And after you’re done reading my blog, head over to, for some eye candy.

  1. I really like that tree skirt. I’ve bookmarked the site. The blanket is really cute with the ribbons. I bet W liked cuddling up with it.

  2. I really like the white and red quilt. I just enjoy reading the ideas you come up with, such as the one with the pjs from Marshall’s. These things would never occur to me. I am so jealous! :o)
