it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

 Things are a little busy here at dutch blue's place. But never the less..we still decided
last Saterday to get out the Christmas decorations and give the house a Christmas makeover.
First the tree...and as you can see...i love color!!

A very sweet angel ornament

Cute familie wearing red hats

Red felt heart

Santa claus and his (wife?)

I believe December is the most busy month of the year. But it is also by far the most cosiest.
I love to lit the candles in the evening and the smell of the Christmas tree.
I love to do some handsewing projects while listening to Christmas music.
The red/ orange quilt is done.
 I used a charmpack "recess" from moda for the nine triangles blocks.

red/ orange mini quilt.
On my quilt hoop now....Dutch folklore.

Dutch folklore
Happy stitching
Enjoy your day!

Love your cheerful and colorful Christmas tree. I too think this is the coziest month of the year. We enjoy a warm fire and the glow of our Christmas tree. I am going to set up my village tonight finally as tomorrow is my quilt group's Christmas party. I treasure my village as my mother and sister made it for me. Since my sister passed away, it is all the more special to put it out each year.

Hugs ~

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

*sigh* Your post is so bright, happy and christmas-y! I love your decorations, and the quilt too! I wish I knew what your christmas music sounds like...

May I ask how you mark your quilt before you quilt it? Every time I see hand quilting I think I should try it. I took a class a while ago, but forgot all I learned...

Those are really cute Dutch Blue Christmas decorations!! Love the red hat family!

Brenda @Cozy Little House said...

You and me both love our color! I'm so envious of you quilting. I loved to sit in the evenings with the tv on in the background and quilt away. Darned arthritis! Oh, but I so enjoy seeing you working on them. Looks like the same size quilting hoop I used. The dogs use to scramble underneath to sleep. These are gorgeous quilts! And what a lovely tree too!

Celestial Charms said...

Your tree looks beautiful and festive. Love all your decorations, especially that wooden angel.

Corry - Santa must've dumped old Mrs. Claus for a younger woman!!! Or else having a mid-life crisis and having a fling!

Gayle (GardenofDaisies) said...

I love all the colorful ornaments on your beautiful tree! And your red quilt is so cheerful!

Judy @ daily yarns said...

cathleen said...

What a lovely post. So cozy and Christmasy. I adore that you hand-quilt. I do too. It's becoming quite rare, don't you think? And the quilt is beautiful with all that blueness!!!!

Wat een prachtige boom hebben jullie! Maar eigenlijk had ik natuurlijk stiekem niets anders van jou verwacht. De quilts zien er ook alweer zo mooi uit!
Liefs en veel plezier onder je mooie boom.

Julie said...

I know December is just so busy but I like to take the time to enjoy it! Your quilts are lovely and so is all of the Christmas decor.

Mrs Twins said...

YOur tree looks absolutely beautiful. Well done! I love all your Christmasy things! Nice time of year isn't it? A tree with the decorations makes the room so festive, warm and cozy.
Enjoy your Christmas!
