The other day, DH was not happy .... he was complaining .... the entrance looked just too bare. The entrance needed some oomph. It is a huge entrance (for us, anyway) and DH suggested a quilt would do the trick. Not a problem. Which quilt should we hang up? Since it was his idea, he got to pick the quilt. He wanted my Blazing Star quilt. So, out to Home Depot we went to buy the pole and brackets (we are using a 10ft. long 1/2" electrical conduit pipe and 3/4" pipe brackets that he cut in half with a special hand metal cutting saw) to hold the pole up (3 brackets were needed). Now, I tell you this was a c. h. o. r. e. See the ladder? That is how we have to hang up this quilt; plus another step ladder that is on the landing. I'm nearly 6' tall and the quilt measures 98" long and you can see how much height there is above my head. Someone had to climb up that ladder and it wasn't me! :o)
Have a great day, eh!
