We've been busy painting, after all when you are in a home for 9 years things need to be done.

so we finally finihed our bathroom and I am still waiting for light fixture and new faucets and hardware to arrive. I also want to paint the cabinet with a buttermilk paint.

the color of this type is about the shade we painted.

Enchanted autumn

I started this quilt by Verna Mosquera of Vintage spool

I need to quilt it! So I dragged it out and pressed it and have the

backing pieced so tomorrow I am taking it to guild to pin baste I love using those large tables, sure is better on the knees!

I decided to machine quilt it, I need to get things done.

Think it will be quilt in the ditch between the blocks and then a

bit of meandering inside the blocks

wish me luck!

fall swap

I made these for Dawn for a fall swap

The Scarecrow mat is from Dec. 2006 Create and Decorate Magazine

the pineapple is from the book "Primitive Gatherings" by Terry Burkhart and Rozan Meacham I also made her a pair of my crazy socks and a jar of Tomato butter.

Last Saturday I made 14 jars of this wonderful condiment and we just love it. Well we must LOL cause you have to cook it for several hours and stir so it doesn't stick, but well worth the effort.

I spent the morning stripping wallpaper, sure not exciting but glad it's done, then I cleaned the oven, don't you hate it when you work so hard and no one sees what you've done? Just like cleaning closets, only you know what you have accomplished.
