Giveaway Winner & Art Hop
The winner of the December giveaway is Brenda from Quilting Along Life's Way. Congratulations!
I took some pictures at Art Hop last night. I was able to complete five quilts this month and added two from my quilt stash.
I had a small space to work with so I thought going vertical would be the best idea. I found this ladder at a resale shop this week and Maddie painted it for me. The lights are a vintage strand I found on a recent thrift outing.
I had some fun with the tags. Keren from Free Pretty Things For You designed the tags for me when she designed my blog. I used a recycled measuring tape and button pins to complete the look.
I made two extra buntings when I was making them for the cafe and had them for sale as well. I don't know what it is about bunting that makes me so happy.
There were lots of fun and pretty treats for customers and Christmas carols never stopped playing. Lots of twinkly lights and laughter, the best kind of Christmas merriment.
Vintage Santa mugs kept winking at me all night long. They are just so adorable. In the end, I didn't sell as much as I would have liked, but I know that purchasing an expensive quilt is quite a commitment for people. Today we have a showing on our house and I plan on spending the day with my husband who is home from work for the weekend. Maddie has her Christmas formal so hair and makeup are on the agenda. Have a blessed day, friends!
