Thanksgiving is over, and now the countdown to Christmas has begun. My favorite quilty things are hung, and today we will set up the tree. It usually takes us several days to get all the ornaments placed as Dave and MIL are so picky about where they go. But the tree is always very pretty.
I am entering the 2011 Christmas Quilt Show hosted by Sewcalgal. Go check out her site and see all of the beautiful Christmas projects done by your fellow quilters.
Here is my most favorite, Countdown to Christmas. I love this one and make sure I change the numbers every morning!!
Here's the mantel so far. I love the banner we made in the stitch-a-long. The other stuff will be moved as we get the rest of our decorations out. We have gas logs this year so we can enjoy a fire without burning the banner, lol.
The Patchabilities snowmen are another favorite. I thought I had lost these, but found them all by themselves in a box in the attic. Whew!!!!
And my Christmas Houses quilt will hang this year. I alternate between this one and the large embroidered rework Christmas quilt.
Than't pretty much all I put out of quilty stuff. Don't want to inundate the place with my stuff so MIL can have room for some of her favorites too.
BTW, MIL has been in the best of humors since she took her last trip to Ohio in the fall. I think she started to realize how much we do for her and how much she loves her simple routines and commotion free life here with us. I hope it continues ad infinitum.
More decorations and Christmas stuff to come I'm sure.
