    The end of the Black Christmas Tree Skirt story

    My DDIL asked for a Black Christmas Tree Skirt to go under her black Christmas Tree. I asked the QB for ideas and here is the results. She said she didn't know what she wanted but the finished skirt was exactly what she DID want. lol

    You did a great job in fulfilling a tall order. Beautiful tree skirt. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I used a hexagon template and extended it out the width of the fabric using freezer paper. It is in 6 wedges.

    The skirt goes really well with the tree. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I have to say I DO like it. And you gave her just what she wanted. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never heard of a black Christmas Tree either. There must be a story behind it. Will you share with us?

    When I questioned her request she said she was weird ......I said, "you must be you are married to my son". The 2 of them not only march to the beat of a different drum but they have their own "Band". She said she saw a black trees decorated in clear lights and white and silver balls and fell in love with it. What more can I say?LOL

    They go perfect together. Very pretty.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
