Quilt Hanger and Christmas.
Happy New Years to all, I know I know I am a couple of days late, but better late than never!
We had a nice quiet Christmas here, just the way I like it! It was just Stuart and the Girls and I we woke up late (one plus of having teenagers, no more 6 am Christmas wake ups!) opened presents, then just hung out for the morning playing with our new toys, I made a nice rib roast for dinner... yea quiet!
Then that weekend the Girls and I went to the movies, Sherlock Holmes and Avatar.. both good movies, but I have to say I highly recommend seeing Avatar, that is a beautiful movie!
Then, the rest of the week I just lounged around, did some quilting but am having problems with my stitch regulator so not as much quilting done as I would have liked :(
I did want to make this post about something other than just our Holidays... and after my last post and Christine's questions about my quilt hanger I thought I would share a little about how I hang my quilts.
You see I hate and I mean HATE making hanging pockets for quilts, and one of my daycare parents has the best hanging system ever so I thought I would share (after I used the idea myself of course). :)
First a picture....
As you can see, it is just simply a curtain rod (purchased for less than ten dollars at Walmart) and curtain rings, the rings have little clamps on them that I use to hold the quilt. The rings come in a pack of 7 for $5.00 So for about 15 dollars you have a nice quilt hanger.
The thing I like about this system is the fact that the rod is adjustable in length so if I have a larger quilt I can extend the rod to accommodate the size. Plus you can get just about any finish you want to suit your decor!
I really do love the fact that I can now hang any quilt I want and I don't have to have a sewn in pocket!!!
Full credit and thanks goes to Kim my wonderful daycare mom who showed me her hanger!
Well, I guess that is it for today, time to get to work... Thanks for stopping by and feel free to ask any questions you many have!
