OK, first let me clarify - my house is VERY LIVED in and not house beautiful! And I don't have much decorations because Mark likes things very plain and comfy. So mostly my decorations are my quilts.
Above is my "Taste of Jane" quilt. This is just as you enter the front door. Right now I have Jane hanging there, but I do swap out that spot for different times of the year or whatever I feel like at the time! If you go straight ahead you go into the kitchen and just before the kitchen is a short hallway that has our bedroom and then back towards the front of the house a laundry room and then into our garage.
As you walk into the house and go left you walk into our living room. Going into our living room to your left again (so kind of next to the front door) I have my rocking chair I rocked my babies in when they were young. I keep this cute basket quilt on it that my best quilting buddy bought for me at a quilt garage sale. I had fallen in love with it but just couldn't spend the money. She snuck it out of the sale and kept it for a surprise xmas gift! So that quilt stays right there all the time!
Then coming into the living room to your right and then facing the front hallway I have my very first applique quilt and very first hand quilted quilt! I keep this one in that spot all the time, I just love it. And a small peak at my current hand quilting quilt. I've had several of you ask before to see it. I"m just going to make you wait a bit. It is the only thing that keeps me working on it! I do owe you some pictures of the sections I have done though. So I promise I'll do that soon.
Once again walking into my living room straight ahead you see my new wall quilt hanger I bought with some money my mom gave me for my birthday last Feb. I can either hang quilts with a sleeve on it (the rod comes out) or just fold quilts like I"ve done here. It is amish made and I just LOVE it! The quilt on the left I made at a quilt retreat a few years ago and is called Spanish Olives because of the colors! And the quilt to the right was from a different retreat but was a mystery class so I had no idea how it was going to turn out! Darn, I should have taken a picture of the quilting on that one - it is my favorite quilting job - it is dense and so cool.
And as I'm typing this I realized I should get a shot of the outside. Maybe I'll grab one tomorrow for you. Too dark now!
I"m playing away this weekend, so I"m hoping to have some fun play pictures for you this week. We will see. I taught punch needle today at the LQS so that cut into my sewing time. I"m hoping I have more time tomorrow.
