Hanging Quilts

Even before I emptied all the boxes I wanted to make the house feel like home so I hung up some quilts. It's so good to see them again.

Once again, Wanda Hansen's quilt occupies a place of honor in my living room. That's Tonya Ricucci's "Live, Love" quilt on the back wall of the living room.

I had wanted to hang the Too Much Chicken quilt on the wall in the dining room, but it was a bit too tall. I decided the two Rules quilts would look good instead. I had always intended them to hang side-by-side. They need to be moved apart a little bit, but that's an easy fix and I have a lot of other stuff to do.

There aren't a lot of big walls in this house suitable for hanging quilts, but I think where I hung "The Quick Brown Fox" was positively brilliant.



The wallpaper is covered in rabbits.

That's it for now. All the boxes (except three of small, framed artwork) have been unpacked and all the big things are in place. I organized my kitchen, pantry, dining room hutch, and bedroom. I still have to do the master bath, the office and studio. Then I need to clear the extra stuff that doesn't seem to have a home.  Wait until you see the pile of paper I have left over.

Wow, you are good!! Can't believe how much you've done in so short a time. I really need to take your advice and get started. My "M" should be next year.

It is really your home now that the quilts are hung. How is Millie adjusting?

It's really a nice place and the quilts make it feel homey! I bet you are ready to relax a bit!

You are awesome! It has been about 1 year since I had to pack up my craft/sewing room due to water damage and I still haven't undone all of it.
Can you share your mojo?
