I've always loved the tree skirts for the Christmas tree. These are two of my tree skirts. The little one we did in our quilt guild out of scraps. I believe it was a Thimbleberry pattern. The nativity tree skirt I did for the store last year. I remember how excited I was to make it because it was a nativity tree skirt. Nancy Halverson did the pattern. Can you tell I love her designs??? Anyway, I think the closer we get to Christ on Christmas and remember that this celebration really is about him, the happier we are and the more we are reminded to be like him.
