Kitchen update - we now have a big gaping hole in the wall that separates my dining room from the kitchen. This is actually where a window used to be before we added a deck onto the house which eventually we closed in and made into a dining room.
My daughter-in-law, Holli, sells tupperware, and I promised to do a party for her on October 28..YIKES!! Hubby has promised it will be finished in by then. Sure would be nice if I could get the kitchen painted by then too, but I don't think that is going to happen. Poor hubby got a sliver of steel in his leg yesterday removing the brick on the dining room side of that hole. Took over an hour to get the bleeding to stop even though the cut was very small. He just felt like something was in there, although he could not see it from the outside or feel it - so being the handy carpenter man he is, he whipped out his stud finder, moved it over his leg and sure enough, there was metal in there. Four hours later after a trip to the medical clinic he returned home, with the metal sliver in a jar and funny stories about how he entertained the folks at the medical clinic with his stud finder and leg. His doctor even borrowed it to check out another patients foot that he had removed a nail from to make sure he had gotten all the metal out, LOL. Now this is a non-electronic plastic thingie that he bought probably 20 years ago at Sears for around $1 !
I did a little decorating this morning, hanging my fall wall hanging over the fireplace. Don't look too close as I did not finish the quilting! I want to hand quilt it, but I also want to use it this year - so, I just machine stitched in the ditch around the sashing, and will finish the quilting once I put up the Christmas wall hanging. The pilgrims I found at Tuesday Mornings - one of my all time favorite places to browse and all to often to buy.
My quilt club met yesterday and we worked on our Forever Friends table runner. Here is mine finished and on the coffee table in the living room. This was a lot of fun and most of the ladies just about finished theirs at the meeting.
We meet at Hobby Lobby, and they were having a 50% off sale on all the Fall decorating stuff, so I picked up the candle holder, garland and the Seasons of Thanks shown shown on the mantle.
.....And last, but certainly not least, my two friends, Carol and Cheryl, and I were finally able to swap our September Friendship Blocks this past Wednesday - October 8. You know how it is, life just gets in the way sometimes of doing what we want. Here they are. Cheryl did the cute lil fella in the yellow raincoat and red boots, Carol the delicate pink flower and I did the Autumn maple leaf. We are really having fun with these blocks!
Thanks for dropping by! (I probably should have said that two paragraphs ago.)
