I don't know if you've heard, but Jill (from Homemade by Jill) is having a sew along. She will be making an advent calendar for the holidays, using this as her inspiration.
I've decided to join in on the fun. I have my backing cut out, my pockets stitched and sewn on, and my tree attached to the base. I just cut out the first few decorations today. I'm pretty excited about it. It'll be nice to have a holiday activity for Clark to participate in.
The tree still needs a skirt, but I'll get to that sooner or later. I'm not sure what guided my color choices...apparently I didn't feel any need to stick to red and green.
