I'm pleased to say that I had a finish on the first day of the year.
You see, our new Christmas tree didn't come with a bag or box or anything, as it was the last one they had. I thought it needed a bag. I raided the box of fabric I bought years ago from Spotlight at $1/metre on clearance. There was even a red one. Add some Christmassy ribbon sitting doing nothing.
Ta Da! Now to find somewhere to put it.
