Here’s a couple of pics of some of our decorations around the house. When we get back from vacation, I’ll post some pictures of the outside decorations and the house.
This first picture is my Teddie bear tree. My bears live all over the house during the year. They even have their own very large canoe so lots of them can sail the ocean blue or the koi pond at the same time. Anyway, every year i gather them all up, dust them off and let them "hang-out" in the tree until the very last day of Christmas. They seem to love it!
Next is our den fireplace all decked out for Santa. The stockings are all hung except the ones I have to make when I get back from Florida next week!
Last but not least is my Christmas village collection. It is displayed on my piano in the music room. My older son calls this room the "piano room" 'cause nothing else will fit in there with mom's piano!
After Christmas holidays, I will be offering new patterns under the design name, Patchwork Parrot Designs. I’m very excited aobut the new pattern line and will be looking forward to the input I receive from the quilt world.
Through my yahoo group, Quilting Fun, I’ll be offering a free online retreat weekend every third month, beginning with January 2006. Some months will be traditional patterns, some months will be an original mystery pattern. Come join the fun at Quilting Fun yahoo group!
