'Cause it sure feels like it in my mailbox! One of my BFFs, Michelle, sent me a box full of Christmas cheer! Thanks so much Michelle!
She also made me a great little snowman candle mat, so I'll keep that out on our table into February of next year!
Here's what my coffee table looks like this time of year! Can you tell I love candles? LOL
And of course what would a post be without a mystery update!! Here is what 52 Fox and Geese blocks look like along side 48 Poinsetta blocks! I will be setting these in the next week, definitely AFTER Christmas!!
I haven't given up on the Quiltville mystery quilt, Carolina Christmas, I just got a bit distracted with the Christmas decorating and whatnot ;) I'm continuing on with the mystery and here are the results! Steps 3 and 4 are now complete...so on to step 5!
It's that time of year again! This is our first year decorating for the holiday in our new home! We put our tree in the front room and realized that next year, we really need a taller tree! LOL
I also got these wonderful glitzy pieces at Sam's club and Kohls...they really compliment the room! I just love a little Christmas bling!
Here is our formal diningroom, and again a bit more glitz with the wonderful BIG centerpiece..Bill has a "thing" for big centerpieces! LOL
This is the quilt rack that my wonderful dad made me several years ago! It looks tremendous in our stairwell and really showcases my quilts and our nutcracker collection!
And in our bedroom, we have a little spindley christmas tree with all my handmade ornies on it! I think this is my favorite decoration of all since everything on it is made by my quilting friends! DH Bill is always asking to sleep with this tree lit up through the night! LOL He really is a little boy at heart ;) Maybe we'll try that during vacation when we don't have to get up early the next day! LOL
Hope you are all ready and decorated for the Holiday season, and hope you enjoyed the little tour of my favorite holiday decorations!
I'm SO happy that I am keeping up with this mystery, that I HAD to post about it! LOL here are my step 2 units and the bin with step 1 and 2 units in it. Funny how all that hard work and literally about 2 yds of fabric compact down into less than a shoebox! LOL
I am SO curious to see what this all becomes too ;) I think that's half the fun!
I'm a 51yrs young quilter who lives out on Long Island, NY with my DH, Bill! I've been quilting for 22 years and also enjoy other needlecrafts including embroidery, cross-stitch and knitting. I also collect pincushions from my friends and have about 80 or so now! I'm also a fitness instructor specializing in Zumba, Zumba Gold, CIZE LIVE and R.E.D. Warrior!
