I’m very excited about Christmas this year. This is the first year that I’ve ever had my own home during the holidays, so I am looking forward to decorating our house for Christmas. Part of this excitement is giving me excellent excuses to sew!

I’m working on a simple project right now that only requires 2 Charm Packs & this YouTube video from The Missouri Star Quilt Co. (Can you tell I’m lovin’ their videos right now?)

If you’re looking for a simple, last minute Christmas tree skirt pattern – you just might be in luck! 

The pattern calls for 81 squares total. There will be 9 rows of 9 when I’m finished. It’s super simple. This would be a great 4-H project for sewing. DSCN7772

Unlike this cheerful Christmas fabric – it is a foggy, colorless day here in South Dakota. So, I’m going to park myself at the machine this afternoon with some hot tea & Pandora radio. DSCN7774

Have a wonderful Saturday afternoon!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I love to blog, plan, organize, decorate, teach, research & be creative. I’m a farm wife & mama of three kiddos: almost 6, 4 and almost 2. We love to live and work in rural South Dakota. A few years ago we remodeled a house & we call our home The Peacock Ranch.

I am earning a Spiritual Direction Certificate from Sioux Falls Seminary & I put my masters in English/Mass Communications on hold at South Dakota State University so I can focus on being a mama in a pandemic! In the meantime, I’m enjoying reading more & writing here on the blog.
