So, we put our heads together and collaborated to find a solution. We created a wonderful wall-hanging. She drew the graphic (because I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler) and I did the sewing and quilting.
I even put buttonholes in the tree, so she could insert those teeny-tiny, miniscule Christmas tree lights from the back so that her tree could also have lights. :-)
This picture is the only one I have before she whisked it off, back to college. I'll have to bug her about getting another picture for display.
Although, I must admit that even though I didn't plan it (and the thought wouldn't have entered my head anyway), the sunlight coming in through the side window really makes it look wonderful. :-)
