What did you do today?

My recent spell of productivity continues. As promised here's a peep at the card I made for my Husband. Every year since we got together I've made a Christmas card for Tony, why should this year be any different? I whipped this one together yesterday evening.
Today I got stuck in a made up the new tree skirt I promised myself. I did all the piecing and quilting this morning, made a quick lunch, threw on a pan of carrot and caterpillar soup and while that bubbled I tidied and snipped thread ends, popped on and closed the binding!
Voilà! One new tree skirt in place. My tree looks so much better with a matching ensemble.
With the exception of the white border it's made entirely from my scraps box, the hearts are raw edge appliqué and true to form, there is no label! LOL

Some time ago DS Jonny spotted this quilt. He's been pestering ever since. (Doesn't want much huh?) I really don't think I'm ready for that challenge, but I've come up with an idea of my own which I'm off to research. Wish me luck.

I love your tree skirt! But please, do tell, what is "carrot and caterpillar" soup? I'm totally curious!
