Christmas at My House (way too many photos)



Okay, Annie M., this is for you! It has been a couple of years since I have posted holiday decor. Here is my dome, sweet dome. I won't bore you with every decoration. I will just bore you with some of them.
This photo is from two years ago. We don't have snow yet this year, so it doesn't look as fun. Lights are the same.

Living Room
                                    


                                   




Dining Room
 Gayle (Middle Sister blog) made the middle quilt on the ladder above and the little quilt on the right, below. I made the others.

Kitchen
The stocking was stitched by a local friend. Ornaments made by DD#1.

Family Room
My favorite new ornaments--this "Biblical Names of Christ" set.
 Sewing Room


I have ornaments on this little tree from each of my daughters, myself, and a few blogging friends. Gayle made the little hooked pillow above, too.




The next two shots are not at my house. They were taken on my parents' front porch. Only at a quilter's home will you find Baby Jesus with a quilt. : )
 One year my Mom decided Baby Jesus looked cold, so she made this little patchwork quilt.

On the quilting front, I did get my little Nativity quilts finished. I have mine (the prototype with all of the mistakes) hanging up and you can see it in one of the living room photos above.

So, other than decorating, what have I been doing?  Haven't had my sewing machine running for over a week. I've been wrapping this stuff (my soap)...

...and doing a little hand quilting. This is the back side.
I'm loving the lights, music, and most of all, the spirit of the season!

Until next time,
Janet O.

  8. Wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home and Christmas decor with us. I love the Alpine trees, and all your mini quilts add so much. But your Mom's manger scene is so precious with that little quilt. Your soap wrapping set up is so organized....and bet it smells wonderful. Thanks again....I enjoyed the tour.

  11. Thanks for the picture tour of your home all decorated for Christmas! I love the trees (two trees together is a neat idea)! Your large quilt rack is wonderful - the one with the saints on it. And, of course, I love the ladder with quilts. And all the quilts, including the ornament quilts!

  19. How fun to see all your decorations Janet - I think my favorite is the tree covered in small quilt ornies (of course). Also tickled to see my small contributions to your decor. I'm glad baby Jesus has a quilt to keep him warm!

  20. I love that you go all out decorating. Even clearing the bookcases for the Christmas season. I have a long way to go to even get anywhere close. No lights outside again at my house. That is so sweet that your mother would think Jesus needed a quilt! I'm glad you shared you many photos!

  40. Everyone deserves a quilt - especially Jesus!!
    A dome home - how fun! Your decorations are just lovely. Despite a few good soakings with the squirt bottle Zorro just can't contain himself: only the top half of my tree is decorated now to keep it all out of his kitty paws... I'm tempted to take the trees down and just put up more white lights which are almost my fav part anyway.

  43. A little late on the comment but I finally finished everything that needed to be out by Christmas so I have a bit more time on my hands these days. Oh, gee, hands that want to learn to hand quilt!! Hopefully your home is still decorated so I can come out and see!! :-)) And I love Jesus' quilt!!

  44. Wonderful, festive decorating for the holiday season, Janet. How special your Christmas celebration must have been in the warmth and beauty of your lovely home. All the quilted touches here and there yell loudly -- "A QUILTER LIVES HERE !!"
    The quilt for baby Jesus is the ultimate in quilted decor. Love it!
