Who's hiding behind this quilt?

Hey look!  Santa dropped something off for me!  My mother stumbled across this quilt when she was having an antique family sampler refurbished by a textile expert.  It 'spoke' to her and she came home with it.  Poor Mom, she doesn't have any where to put it. it's mine!  Yay!  I love the soft colors and I think it will look lovely against my pale spring green walls.  Hopefully it won't take me too long to get it hung up.

Like these little trees?  I made them last year and I have a little forest of them on the shelves in the kitchen.  They sit on little sticks so they bobble.  So cute!

Hey Charlie Brown!  Whaddya think of this tree?  Jealous?  We procrastinated so long that finally Mr. 9patch dashed out looking for a tree.  Most places were closed so I said go to Lowes.  Ta dah, this little number cost $15.  When we decorated it, the lights were on and it looked a lot better.  Tonight I'm going to finish putting more ornaments on it, then move it to the side.  And maybe I'll wrap some presents to put under it.  Have a wonderful Christmas everybody.  Prepare for New Year's resolutions soon people!  I've been thinking of things already.
