Welcome to my home! Tonya and Kathie's posts about the entry to their homes were fun, so you're on the guided tour of the entry to my home!
If I were a better photographer, or a gymnast, I might have been able to get you a better picture. I had to open the door and step out onto the mat, I'm not tall enough to unbolt the second part of the front door, so it was tricky to get a shot where you could see anything quilty!
At the top of the picture, you can just see two of the three Rebecca Barker 'Quiltscapes' I purchased in Paducah. I just love her work. I got a mouse mat too, so whenever I'm on the computer, I'm still feeling quilty!
Tonya mentioned she wished she'd asked about the first quilt people see when they come into your home. I keep one of my favourite quilts folded on top of my Singer treadle. It's called 'Christmas in the Garden'. It was a quilt that accompanied my profile in AP&Q early this year. They renamed the quilt 'Tara's Garden' as the quilt didn't end up going in a Christmas issue. My SIL really wanted the quilt, but I just couldn't bear to part with it after it had been in the magazine.
I don't really have a wall large enough to hang a decent size quilt on in the entry-way, but just out of shot I have two little blocks on hangers, one is a block called Prosperity, I figured if I hung the block in my hallway, maybe it would invite prosperity into our home? The other is a cute little schoolhouse.
Immediately opposite the front door there is a window which looks though to a fernery. And of course there are the obligatory blue and white chine plates on the wall near the clock. They're from the Spode Xmas collection. It's super fun that so many of us seem to collect blue and white china! Ohhh, and I should probably tell you that that's the door to my bedroom there ...
Hanne is ready to make her 4 blocks already. I won't know until Monday when I weigh in, but so far so good. Keep your fingers crossed for me! x o x
