    My christmas open house

    this past weekend I hosted an open house for all my friends that are very talented, to sell their things to the public. I of course represented quilting or anything needle related. Here are the pics!

    OMG! It looks fabulous. Love the pillows on the bed, love the wall hangings by the door... oh I just love it all. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful work! I love the owl wall hanging and the table runners. I actually love it all and did you sell your items well?

    yes I sold a few smaller items, the bigger ones (the pictures failed to upload for those ones) are a definate committment for people and I wasn't really expecting to sell those.

    wow...I doubt I could ever open my house to public in this town...every thief in the county would show up...however, your home looked ALIVE with all those wonderful items!
    I am especially interested in that Holiday quilt above the bed in the second pix. LOVE that one!

    A group here in Coos Bay held the same type of sale this weekend. I guess they sold a lot but I couldn't afford to buy much this year but I sure wanted to!
