I've been busy cleaning and decorating. That job seems to go hand in hand. We are going to have toys dancing over our heads while we dream and think about Christmas.
I have most of my quilts home, so I'm putting them on display around the house. The quilt on the bed is called Sallie's Quilt by Red Crinoline. The original quilt was made with blue setting triangles. I preferred the red, so that's what I did.
The pillows are an old, old Thimbleberries pattern. I pretty much leave them out year-round.
A folded up Toyland Tree is hanging on the quilt rack. It is so much fun to rearrange the quilts for an entirely different look.
I'm afraid if we have an earthquake, we will be pommeled with snowballs from the snowman collection on the top shelf. We were here one time during an earthquake. This old log home creaked and groaned like my knees when I get up in the morning. I was afraid it was going to topple like a Lincoln Log house.
I have a full day of more decorating and straightening up. My quilting room is next on the to-do list. I sure can make a mess when I put my mind to it! My pristine quilting room has become somewhat of a dumping ground from our last trip back home. I'm trying to bring another bin or two of fabric back with me. I haven't figured out where it's going to go yet. All of the Christmas presents are sitting on the floor too. Maybe if I start wrapping, it will take care of part of the mess.
I hope you have a good day preparing your nest for the Holidays. Happy December 1st.
