At the end of another weekend...


they go so FAST! UGH! But...reality is...it's back to work tomorrow. In the meantime, it was a productive weekend! I recently painted the living room and our carpet was installed Thursday....so I've spent the weekend slowly putting things back together--albeit in a different configuration...but that's a GOOD thing! I finally have my sampler wall...this is a picture of it. I already have my eye on an adjacent wall to this one, but have to get some more samplers framed before I take that over!

Otherwise, I haven't done much of anything creative.....that is NOT good! So I'm going to go down and start some laundry and cut out a quilt now and let hubby enjoy the rest of Father's Day with uninterrupted TV time!

What a SHORT summer!



Brrrrrr! It's downright CHILLY here today! 50s....perfect chili weather....but I'm all confused because there's no football on TV! UGH! What happened to summer!!?!? Poof! Gone! Although the weatherman assures us it will return----someday! If only my newly experienced private summers will pass as quickly! Now THAT would be awesome! Can I get an Amen Sista? LOL

Aaaaah...okay.....so the past week I've painted the living room....a great color called Band of Gold.....in the sunlight it looks mucky gold....when the sun sets....it turns a weird sagey green.....or as Ashley, my 21 year old daughter says...it looks like split pea soup! I LOVE it! We're also furniture shopping and getting ready for new carpet to be installed. That means sweet Emmitt better hurry with his training!

Speaking of Emmitt...he's doing fine....what a momma's boy! But that's what I wanted! :o) Here's his latest pic taken in the sewing room of the basement.......where we spent much of the day assembling and finishing piecing my latest quilt...not sure what to call it.....I've been calling it the Garden Quilt....because of the print. Nothing special...just a quick piecer. :o)

Hubby's watching hockey....and I'm piping the latest MercyMe cd into my brain via the headphones attached to my head. Have I ever mentioned how much I love MercyMe? MercyMe...Third Day...yeah...uh-huh.....awesome uplifting music! I can always use that!

Okay...enough is enough! I'm going to go stitch and enjoy some tunes! I hope your needles are plying some sort of fabric and giving you joy! Until next time.......
