Good morning all.
Ever since our garage sale robbery last weekend I've felt uneasy. Now the front porch light stays on all night...every time I hear a noise I'm nervous. It's a shame when you get robbed because where you once felt safe changes. I try to look a it as a life lesson to learn...be aware, always aware.
Mr. C has been working all week painting our outside windows white. The Charmer has very little wall space but we sure do have a lot of windows. I'll share more on this next week. I've been switching between a few projects, getting deck ready for a reveal, canning and quilting.
I'm attending a baby shower on Sunday and have been working on a quilt. Now I haven't quilted in over 25 years and blame Debra, Frugal Little Bungalow for re-inspiring me! Now I know I will NEVER be as good a quilter as she...but I'm back at it again.
Last month I attended the best barn sale I've ever been too. So many finds I've already shared but I haven't mentioned I found bags of unfinished quilts...7 to be exact. All in different stages of being finish, some with just pieces cut out while others have a great deal of finished sections. Two of the bags had pieces for baby quilts so it worked out perfectly since I'd be attended the shower.
Some of the pieces in the baby quilt bag. I certainly did not like the dark maroon color and ripped this all apart. I started re-working sections and adding outside sections..
It's hard to see, but the top and bottom rows are blue, second row merlot and brown and the appliqued animals in the middle. I'm doubting my fabric choices and everything in between. So hope she likes it and she is having a boy.
Not only do I love the Charmer but I also love where's she located we are in the old part of town so everything is close. I can walk to the store, library, bank, hairdressers, Marshall's and to the church I attend. Yesterday I walked to church which is only 6 block away.
and it was a beautiful day. On the way home I stopped to collect acorns and leaves from several Maple trees.
I'll be sorting out the squirrel eaten ones and used the rest in a vignette.
I better get back to working on the baby quilt and hope all of you a happy day.
