Christmas Tree Skirt is Finished!

I wanted to make my daughter and grandson a new Christmas Tree Skirt and while I started making this before Thanksgiving, I didn't finish it until December 6th. I used a variety of appliques on this skirt (most I got from Homespun Magazine) and added a ruffle all around the skirt. Since the tree is artificial I didn't need to add a slit, just a hole in the center. This could double for a table topper on a round table too with a candle and some pine cones in the center.
Tree skirt all appliqued with machine blanket stitch and hand embroidered details.
There was still snow on the ground, when I took the photos.
Santa and Rudolph. I used the En Francais stamp for Santa's List (I didn't even notice that I put it upside down until just now! Lol!!! Oh well perhaps the list is over flowing and that's why it's upside down?)
Soldier.
Snowmen sledding in an upside down umbrella.
More snowmen. I love snowmen.
All bundled up.
Penguin and trees. I added some sequins to the trees for a bit of bling.
Little angel.
Wheelbarrow full of snowmen.
