I am a procrastinator extraordinaire... the only reason I get crafty stuff done is that I'm avoiding cooking, cleaning and laundry. Really - that is the way it is. I don't fret about getting out my Christmas decorations right after Thanksgiving because I know it will be mid-January before I take them down, so there is no rush.
However, I decided to jump into the fray and get a few things out. I started with this new additon to my bedroom... Carol's Christmas quilt!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! All of that wonderful Christmas-y busyness sashed and bordered in buttery yellow goodness. It is perfect for this room. Even my bed linens coordinate - LOL (You knew the sheets would be yellow right?)
Santa is front and center and waves to me as I enter or leave.
And you can see the great job Cass did on the quilting. She used a Christmas tree design that tessellates in a variegated green thread. Just perfect!
I had a lot of comments on the back fabric at the guild meeting Monday night. I think there may only have been 2 bolts of this fabric in all of Cincinnati and between me and my friend Stephie, I believe we got it all!
I decided I should change out the wreaths on my front doors. And you are seeing this correctly my front doors are mostly glass - who thought that was a great security idea? Sheesh.
These wreaths have been redone numerous times and they are getting a bit shabby but they'll do for another year. Maybe I'll be able to get this colorful ornament wreath (click here) I saw at Pier 1 today, on sale later in the season... I hope so. I thought about buying it for my son's front door but decided it may be a bit too wild for the boy. I'm sure he'll thank me for passing it up.
Now onto other decorating. My DH got out the prelit Christmas tree I bought about 3 years ago. I love the idea of not having to put the lights on it every year. Well, right now it has 2 swaths where there are NO lights lit... grrrrr!!! I need to work up the patience to see if I can fix it... and maybe a glass of Christmas cheer. Yeah, that would definitely help.
Hope your decorating is going well.
