Impressions of Christmas.....

Christmas is almost upon us. For me, as with other seasons of the year, using my handmade objects is a big part of our decorations. 


A number of my quilts and stitched pieces hang in the living room. Above is a sample.


I love to arrange flowers and have made a poinsettia arrangement in a doll's sled in front of our hutch. 


My bobbinlace ornaments hang in the tree with mercury glass and silver ornaments.

  1. I am totally intrigued with your quilted & spool Christmas tree. You are so talented! Your Christmas quilt is also very pretty. I am new to quilting . . . you are inspiring me to make a quilt to hang over our mantle next year, thank you.
    Merry Christmas,
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  2. I love all the touches of Christmas displayed in your home! Did you make the "tree" piece next to the quilt? I love it because you don't often see something like that...so creative and pretty!

  4. Such beautiful decorations! You always make your home so homey and welcoming. And BTW, it's been really cold here (except for the past few days), so I have been wearing my neck warmer under my coat. It makes all the difference!
