Decking the halls - a job I was dreading when there was just a big pile of storage containers piled in the hallway. Now I have just a couple of quilts that need to find a nice place for display.
Several views from the stairs.
And a peek around a few corners.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
And to keep this blog at least sort of about quilting, an accountability update.
I have 52/97-ish of the hexagons quilted. Translation: 52 diamonds are quilted, one complete side is finished and two other edges are partially done. I always seem to set my goals a little higher than I actually achieve. That's okay. I'm happy there is progress.

Love all your christmas quilts, wish I had large ones too, so I plan on making them now for next year. I figure I need about five for certain areas, lol. Love your hexagons, beautiful work on them.

I like your display on the treadle sewing machine. I am always attracted to the vintage machines.

Your house looks lovely...so ready for Christmas! Mine, sadly, does not. Hope to start to remedy that this afternoon!

Your decorating is wonderful, and I especially love that you used so many quilts. You inspire me. Though I am a quilter, have yet to make any for myself for the Christmas season.

Cozy, inviting, and holidayish for sure!

Love the hexagon progress--nice to see that over half are complete.

Have you got time now to help me finish my decorating, Libby? Oh - and bring Daisy! Seriously, it looks wonderful! How nice that you're all settled into your home for the holidays! Maybe Santa will give you lots of time over the holidays to finish the hexagons! Oh - and since Hubby made a few of them, will he quilt a small portion, too?
Cheers!
