The Colourpoint Cats quilt only had a brief two day stint hanging up above the couch. It’s almost Christmas after all, so down it had to come to be replaced by a seasonal quilt. This one is Christmas Smorgasbord, made with blocks received in two different internet block swaps, stars and nine patches. Never mind, the cats will get another turn to shine before too long.
I always seem to have more Christmas quilts than hanging room, these two small ones are favourites so were chosen again. The Selvedge Christmas Tree was fun to stitch, and the Red Robins and Christmas Trees quilt was sent to me by pen-friend Rose in UK.

The second couch has my Christmas ABC quilt over the top. I really enjoyed stitching these pretty blocks, patterns designed by the very talented Michelle Ridgeway. Gemma decided she was going to pose on top, perhaps she is trying to be a Christmas Angel?
More stitching on the coffee table – my Jingle Table Runner, a Red Brolly design. Down one end, Santa gathers up the reindeer as they are munching in the meadow, and on the other end, they are hooked up to the sleigh, raring to go and deliver all those parcels.

Each year I like to display my small collection of James Shore figurines, so pretty. They are alongside Santa who is sitting at the sewing machine stitching his Santa Hat. These delights were all gifts sent over the years from my quilting pen-friend Carol of South Dakota.
There are a few other things dotted about inside, so everything looks nice and festive. I just have the family gifts to wrap and then I’m all finished. Christmas Day will be an easy one this year, we are dining out with friends, for a change.
