Tis a gift - our Christmas tree skirt
The tree skirt was made by a friend of mine from our days in Ohio. Her daughter developed a very rare condition that could only be treated in one state in the US. The family had to sell everything off to afford the move and some of the medical expenses. I bought the tree skirt and a few of her Christmas ornaments.
The cabbage patch dolls were made by a friend, also from Ohio, for each of our girls. She made a baby quilt from the same fabrics for our son.
The book is my collection of Christmas stories. My mother-in-law made the book with a few stories in it and I added the cross stitch. It is about falling apart now but we love it.
