Fall

The leaves are turning color here....
but the weather has YET to cooperate!
 
The leaves say FALL.
The weather says SUMMER.
 


I decided to listen to the leaves
and do a little Christmas sewing.
(Christmas tree skirt)
 
There's one thing I know about myself.
I like to TWEAK patterns...
OR better yet...
use NO pattern.
But I was kind of surprised I would do it to a pattern
 
LOL!
 
Instead of quilting this and adding binding
like the pattern instructs...
I made it PILLOWcase fashion.

Added some swirly lines.....for interest....

and in another TRUE to FORM move....
I used some old curtains for the back!
 
THRIFTY.
My middle name.
;)

Here it is BEFORE the swirly stitching.
Hmmm.....
I kind of like it this way too!
 
Too late.
