A generous gift

I have a dear friend Shirley who has been like a mom to me over the years. She is the woman God placed in my life to fill that role when my own mom did not. Shirley is such a blessing in so many ways.
She knows how much I like the Christmas season and wanted to do something special for me. A few weeks ago we went to lunch and to a great quilt store and we picked out fabric for a new Christmas tree skirt. She finished it and gave it too me, along with a table runner to match. I think every woman needs a Shirley in her life!!
Here is the Skirt. I love it!!!



It matches my tree decor perfectly!! I love the combination of fabric she used. Thank you Shirley!!
I am linking this to Fabric Fun Thursday(because it is so pretty and homemade)   : )
