    My 2011 Christmas gift

    These are the tree skirts and table toppers I made for family this past Christmas. Kind of late getting them on the board, but as they say "better late, than never". I had fun making them and just love the different ways to put together the French Braid look. I didn't get the binding on till the last minute and all had to be sent by post to their individual future owners so I don't think any of the pics are actually showing them as 'complete'. The only item I made this year that wasn't a french braid was the Illusions wall hanging for my brother. I would like to enlarge the pattern and make it for myself. It is really a nice one. Enjoy!

    Wow, great tree skirts! I would have had a tough time cutting into those beauties.

    I love all the tree skirts!! Can you tell me the name of the book or pattern you used to make them? Your brother's wall hanging, while not my style is very pretty.

    Thanks everyone. The Tree Skirt and Table Topper pattern is in Jane Hardy Miller's book French Braid Obsession.
