It's Christmas Time!

I love Christmas time! The music, the yummy treats, the scents of the season, the decorations, I love it all! One of the things I love most is making many of my Christmas decorations. My favorite is to make Christmas quilts. I though you might like to see some

Now, I know it is only Thanksgiving week here in the US, but my Christmas decorations start going up the week after Halloween.  Some stay up all year!

The first picture shows one of my favorite quilts. For the size of it, it really didn't take that long to make.  I took this quilt down after last Christmas but before that, it hung in this spot for over 3 years (all year long) because I love it so much.  The smaller one is a cloth with a print stamp on it.  All I did was quilt it.

The next quilt used metallic thread.  I found the thread difficult to work with and probably won't make another using it. The white square in the middle has a Star of Bethlehem quilted in it.  My apologies that you can't see the center block clearly.  I also embroidered the circular "Our Daily Bread" design over the walk way.  In addition, I made my kitchen table and bar chairs when we first moved into the house 12 years ago. 

Quilts going up the stairs.

I love this tree, but I only made a few decorations on it. (I did make the curtains behind it though.)  I am posting this picture because I think it is pretty and it really helps put me in the Christmas spirit. This tree is in my living room.

This tree is in the family room. I made some of the decorations on the tree. I also made the bookshelves and the curtains.  

My dining room.   I made the rug. It has seat cusions and placemats to match but I removed them for Christmas. I took this picture while standing on the stairs.
This quilt hangs in the dinning room on the other side of the china cabinet. It has been hanging here for two years. It is one of my year long decorations to remind me of Christmas throughout the year.  My father made the sculpture. 
Last picture! This is the tree in my office. It has a tropical theme. I made the quilt in the hallway. 

 I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a happy holiday season!
