    Will replace the front door 'wreath'

    Seems the picture I posted of my 'front door wreath' is an idea that many can see the 'unweirdness' of it.

    I have this hanging on the other side of the door (I have a son in the Navy) and I was going back and forth whether I was going to hang it on the outside when the Christmas season is finished. Thank you, for deciding for me - I'm going to!
    (this is one of those patterns I made up from a pic I saw online, I don't know where, or who is responsible for it. If that person is on this list, thank you for the idea)

    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    I think you have a great idea with the little quilts on your front door. There's always one house on the street that changes with the seasons/holidays. Have the door that people check on to see what's next!

    Very nice. I have a flag down my front door and also a flag flying 365 days a year. My daughter is in the Army and will always applaude our soldiers what ever uniform they wear.

    I like it! Why not leave it on the front of the door after the Holidays? I have a yellow ribbon that lights up in my front picture window--I found it somewhere right after the War in Iraq first started and my son was deployed. When He came home the first time ( there were 3 other tours) I was going to take it down and he told me not to, said, Mom, I might be home but there are still guys over there and many of them are my friends. It's still there, all of these yrs later and even tho, we are about out of Iraq there is still Afghanistan. Thanks for supporting all of our husbands, wives, sons and daughters.

    that is great, just a warning from a lady I worked with whose husband is a Marine. She said they have been warned not to hang this type of display on the door or in the windows. It lets thieves know that someone in your house is in the service and therefore target these houses to break in. It is a sad world we live in when the people serving our country have to be warned not to be proud of it because of thieves. They were advised to hang them on the inside of the door.
