I finished the Christmas tree skirt for my daughter. It's the first Christmas tree skirt I have ever made and I kind of made it up as I went.
Unlike me, my daughter loves decorating for the holidays. Now her children do too.
If I know my daughter she will treasure this Christmas tree skirt and it will be handed down for generations until it falls apart.
And maybe, long after I'm gone, someone will be thinking of me at Christmas time when they put this skirt around their Christmas tree.
The label, when I get it finished, will read:
Christmas gift suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
