Husband is On his Way Home !

Pin It

I have to say,  "I'm ready for Husband to be HOME ! !" 

If not for more than I can sleep at night  ! 

Isn't it funny, how you work all day and never think pretty much anything? And when you lay down at night to sleep your mind goes in hundreds of different directions. And, then again maybe I just missed him? I did.....

I have SO many "honey do" projects for "US" to do the next coming weeks.

Thanks for letting me share my time this past week, I've been doing these weeks for 36 years and I've never shared ! It's been fun for me and I hope for you !

Third Day HOME ALONE !

Pin It
It's Day Three, Loving this
Received the phone call (a.m.), Husband is there and they are heading in, I won't hear from him until they come out. They car in, boat in, sleep in tents, fish, blah, blah, blah ! 
I'm sure it's the same way he thinks about me talking about quilts.

Want to see a grown man shiver in his work boots ?
Walk into Lowes with a yellow legal pad, tape measure and pictures from pinterest ! ! ! Yes, it was a metal tape measure not cloth, I've learned, they will laugh out loud at you, I know I did it....once. 

I'm home with cabinets, paint, and LOTS of plants, pots and soil, the lanai is MINE. 
Let the planting begin ! 

But, sanding is first,
I hate sanding, but yes they are "NEW" wood cabinets and yes, I'm painting them WHITE. 
A lite sanding and wiped them down to remove everything. I'll paint in the morning ! 

After the sanding I finished 8 quilt blocks, Loving them  !! For some reason with this project having so many fabrics I've just let it all be....a mess

My sewing table ! 

Dinner with a glass of wine tonight ! 

I'm making Hamburger Helper 
Classic Stroganoff, funny I know that complete name ! 
Husband doesn't like it and I LOVE it !

Took batting, the kind that is used for hot pads, I used 2 layers and an old bath towel folded in half, but you could use just about anything for your top.

Last year the house in Nebraska had sold, the moving van was gone and we headed for a weekend away before our flight to Florida. I was exhausted and slept most of the first afternoon and night. 


But, at breakfast in the dining room the next morning, the floor was tile, a bear paw pattern. My brain was on over driver and I spent a great afternoon playing with the pattern on my old laptop, so old the only thing on it is the quilt pattern program, so here's my quilt and pattern for you.  It's only Available HERE

My First Quilt

Pin It
This is my first quilt
In the early 80's we moved to Burlington, Iowa, it's in the southeastern corner of the state on the Mississippi River and yes, I learned how to spell Mississippi.

I had done some blocks, some pillows and then I saw in the paper a class being hosted by the local quilt group. I remember it being expensive and how I agonized over it for days. but, finally signed up.
The teacher was "Liz Porter" at the time she worked for one of the magazines, Better Homes maybe, but it was a wonderful day and I learned so much.

letters on a quilt

It was a color class which meant nothing to me at the time, looking at the quilt today I didn't get the whole idea. Liz brought letters to add to each quilt to identify, I used my initials.

Hand quilting was so relaxing to me, I had no frame, just a dining room table, pinned it very well and quilted. I checked out library books on how to do everything. The quality of books we have now is crazy different from then.

I was approached to join the quilt group after the class. I think I was a rarity in the group a "new" member. I remember being laughed at when they saw my round corners on the quilt. I love these corners.This is my quilt, I curl up under it daily, it's washed all the time and it's just over 32 years old. It's never looked better to me.

And, if you are in the group in Burlington, IA. I'd love to hear from you ! !
