The first Christmas celebration in my new house was a big event!
The family came to my house on Christmas Day. This year we organized our family celebrations a bit differently in the ‘dinner-department’. Everybody had brought something to eat, which made putting dinner on the table for a large group of people so much easier. In previous years, my parents had always organized this family gathering all by themselves, but now it is us kids’ job… and I was first up!
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with each others company, the fun little gifts (lots of socks… ha ha!) and the lovely dinner.
I had set the tables in mint green, ’70’s green and hints of red.
The most fun I had with putting up the decorations for this lovely day, was this…
My kitchen window!
I had bought a special chalk pen, actually meant for black boards in restaurants and such. These pens can also be used on other smooth surfaces like glass. I had bought two white Edding 4095 pens to decorate this large window with.
So, I put a quilt on my window!
I used my large cutting and quilting rulers for the marking and of I went! The neighbor walked past a few times with his little dog while I was drawing. He must have thought I was kind of weird… but you already knew that, right?!
The chalk can easily be wiped off, so nothing is permanent!
And then… the snow came !
This is what the window looked like from the outside.
The ‘ window quilt’ looked at its best without any light behind it. A little bit disappointing but it was still a cool window.
On another kitchen window I added this little drawing…
I think I have started a new personal tradition! I will design a new Christmas quilt in December 2018.
