On December 26 all of my holiday spirit vanishes and I want my decorations taken down.
I suddenly become claustrophobic with all of the "stuff" around me.
I need to see clean open spaces.
Today I spent about 4 hours removing the living room and dining room decorations.
Tomorrow I will finish removing the main tree and the 3 on top of the entertainment center.
What I am really excited to tell you about is that thirty minutes ago I finished my quilt!
I am very happy with how it turned out. I didn't plan it to be a Christmas quilt, but the colors do suggest that it may have been made for that holiday. It seems appropriate that I finished it during Christmas week.
All of that binding I showed you has been sewn on: In honor of the big event, I even changed all the bed linen this morning to my favorite 1000 thread count sheets. I can't wait to crawl in this bed tonight!
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
