The Big Tear Down Has Begun

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!


  1. How pretty is the quilt, Zoey!
    I am like you, I want to take all the decorations down to..I also want open spaces.
    Enjoy the teardown..

  2. I'm glad it's not only me who wants all the Christmas decorations gone and a clean clutter free house. Like you I've started - but I'm doing mine slowly...vbg...cause that's all the time I have.

    Loooooove the quilt. It looks magnificant on the bed and the colours are devine. Well done. No wonder you can't wait to crawl into bed.

    Happy New Year to you and yours. I hope 2008 is a wonderful and exciting year.

  3. Beautiful quilt!

    I leave my decorations up until New Years' Day and then take them all down while I watch the Rose Bowl parade. Well, all down except the nativity set which I leave up until January 6th.

  4. Lovely quilt!
    Happy New Year,

  5. Your quilt is a masterpiece!
    I will slowly take things down on Little Christmas-January 5th. I think a month is long enough and I am anxious to get my decorations tidied up in the basement storage too.

  6. 1000 thread count sheets. That's fancy! And your quilt looks lovely. I like how the borders start right at the edge of your bed.

    I'm working on a log cabin quilt now too! :)

  7. Thank you all for the nice comments on the quilt. It was nice and warm sleeping under it last night.

    Alyana, Welcome! I don't believe I have seen you here before. Please visit again!

    Chopsticks, that is the beauty of making your own bed covering. I made sure to measure again and again to make sure the border fell at exactly right spot. I am so glad someone noticed my efforts! Thank you.

  8. I am SOOO in love with your AQUA quilt!
    I LOVE AQUA... so you can imagine how much I am drooling over your beautiful creation Zoey!
