My House is all Dressed Up for Christmas!!!

Today is the opening for the 2011 Christmas Quilt show over at Sew Cal Gal's. Here is my Christmas entry for this show. Be sure to pop over to see the rest of the Christmas entries. The show is running from Nov 28th - Dec 2nd.

I don't have many project pictures I can show you. They are all Christmas presents. And my family and friends read my blog.... so I decided to show you my decorations. Here is tree number 1.

I made this quilt years ago. I put it up every Christmas.

This is tree number 2 in my entry way.

This quilt was made in a series of three. I gave the other two away to blog friends.

Tree number 3. This is the child tree. All the ornaments on it are made by my kids.

I have a collection of snowmen that I put out every year. Here is one of my favorite snowmen. My Mom bought him for me. I really love the Christmas season. 
   
Well, I'm off to quilt some more. I'm almost done..... almost!!!
Hope all is well with you!

For those doing the Christmas Quiltie trade... How is it going?? Hope you are almost done.
I have already received several sets in the mail....They are wonderful!!! This is going to be a great trade!!

Sandie, you have made my day a Christmasy Day thanks to your sharing of the pictures of your beautifully decorated home. The quilt that you put up every year is spectacular! A project of love, I'm sure. The Merry and Bright is adorable and I see a few Jim Shore angels...don't you just love Christmas!

Your decorations are so beautiful and the quilt you hang every year is amazing. I also love the smaller hanging that is one of set of three...it is adorable. Your home looks fantastic and one of my favorite things in your post is the snowman proclaiming "Jesus is the Light of the World". What a beautiful post, thanks so much for sharing. Hugs...

I thought I left a comment here when you first put this post up, but apparently I didn't. I think it's so cool that you have trees throughout your house! Beautiful wall hangings! I really love them both! And how special to have one part of the set of 3 wall hangings knowing that others are enjoying theirs and thinking of you as you are thinking of them.
