Pictures of busyness....

Its been a couple of weeks since I last posted and time has just gotten totally away from me.  I first started to title the post "Pictures of business" thinking that adding "ness" to "busy" you would drop the y and add an i.  And what do you know...that spells business.  Just something I thought you might find interesting.

Anyway, I am going to just show a few pictures of what I have been doing. Hope you enjoy...






This week started out with Vacation Bible School at my church.  My daughter was the director this year, and she asked me to keep the nursery - which turned out to be just my sweet lil angel, Taralyn.  So each night, I got to bond with my granddaughter - how special is that!

We left town on Friday for a family reunion in West Virginia.  The weather was beautiful the whole trip, as was wild and wonderful West Virginia.  Here is a view from one of the bridges we crossed over. 
  I did manage a little sewing on the trip, finishing up some klosjes. I am still working on the pattern for this project.

On getting back home, rested up a bit and dove right into a project at home - refinishing the china cabinet my dad made. Started out early by taking the cabinet apart, sanding and sanding the varnish off each inch of the cabinet and finally cleaning up the room - which meant vacuuming up all the sawdust, wiping down the china cabinet and the walls and the windows and ME for that matter. Here it is all cleaned up and ready to paint - tomorrow.

So, that is what I have been up to.  Tomorrow, who knows, I may have a WHITE china cabinet to show.  My "As the Needle Turns" applique club is coming over tomorrow for a klosje lesson  using English Paper Piecing. I know, that is not applique, but we diversify!

Thanks for stopping by,
Teresa

Diversification keeps us from getting bored! Your granddaughter is absolutely precious, so happy that you got that one-on-one time with her. The cabinet is wonderful, can't wait to see it in it's new coat of paint.
