Now I am ready to Decorate …
The older I get, the longer it takes for me to get in the mood for holiday decorating. The wreath has been hanging on the door for about a week and I bought some frames at a thrift store with an idea how to use them, but aside from that, no decorating has been happening chez moi.
Last night, I stitched down the binding on my little idea for our rectangular blocks. Putting it on my small dining table this morning nudged me in the holiday direction. Here’s how my 30 inch square quilt looks this morning, hanging in the studio.
Here are some close-ups of the quilting in the corners, around the baskets and in the center. I used a stencil to mark the 2 inch wreathes in the little boxes … and it looks like the markings didn’t completely wash out.
Now, I feel ready to decorate. Maybe I’ll be back with a more festive photo … in the meantime, here it is on my table. It fits!
