Handmade holidays, continued

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that we were the grateful recipients of several handmade gifts this Christmas. Karyl kindly gave me this gorgeous holiday quilt, which—as you can tell—did not get put away with the rest of the Christmas decorations. I love it so much I think it will always be on hand—it’s perfect for snuggling under when you’re dressed in nothing more than swimwear in February.

    The Christmas Tree quilt is beautiful! It looked so pretty in your living room when we saw it at Christmastime.

    Karyl, you have a keen eye for coordinating fabric colors and patterns!

    I’m jealous…I love that one. It looks beautiful in your home though!

    So, what have you moved behind your couch there? Was that in your dining room before – or is that something new? We need to get down there to catch up!

    I wish I could take credit for coordinating those fabrics – the truth is that they came in a color coordinated group – and when new groups come in, the designers usually include their new patterns as well. This was something we kitted up at the Moose – I loved it, and just had to make it – but I was just following instructions.

    That’s another holiday project, Karyl! Dave cut my library card catalog in half so I could use it behind the love seat. It fits much better there than it did in the dining room, and it creates some extra seating.

    Well, it looks beautiful there – what did you do with the other half?
