Happy 4th of July

For those of you who celebrate, Happy Fourth of July! For those of you who do not celebrate, have a great day.

For the first time that I can remember it does not feel good to post this sentiment. My wish for this 4th (although it is not a gift giving holiday) is that we return to kindness, civility and working together to make a better future for our children.

We did something different this year. We used a quilt for a tree skirt. I think it looks nice with the gifts wrapped in gift bags.

I made a tree skirt out of felt soon after I got my first tree. It has been looking ratty for a few years, but it looked embarrassing last year. I didn’t make a tree skirt, though I have a pattern. Perhaps next year, now that the Thanksgiving tablerunners are done?
