we're talking easy walks, 
nothing over 4 miles round trip.

First Day of Kindergarten


First Day of Pre-K


there was a wedding...





the cutest cake...





I've been sewing some...


my September Block
"Philadelphia Pavement"


I made two blocks for a table runner.


Then "Honey, there's no hot water"


replaced the water heater, it was 12 1/2 years old.



Kenneth was cleaning up in the shop 
and replaced the handle on a hammer...

the other one wasn't very accurate, It hit the wrong nail.

then he came across this "little friend"...


about 20" Copper Head, 
the first snake we've ever seen here
and hopefully the last.


was driving back from Quilt Club Wednesday, 
Sept. 17, 2014 @ 3:56pm

Well house cont....

We're still working on the well house redo...

added white trim...


and a LAZY "Z" on the door,


and repainted the old window I got from Canton Trade Days several years ago.


Cut out flower shapes to make out of these old plastic signs for the window box.




cut these out last night, while watching TV...



some red, and orange centers,
need yellow, purple maybe blue or pink...


and then I found the glitter paint...


Kenneth picked these up...



I saw this on Pinterest...
Window box flowers...these hang outside my studio and I love these.  I make these out of recycled signs. Colorful and so eco-friendly.

If you don't want to make you own you can buy them from Colleen Attara Studio
(scroll to the bottom of the page and go to her "Shop")


and started painting a quilt block on the back side for the trail riders to have something to look at when they go by.





Finished it yesterday...

Kittens in the window...

and a little friend...

 

this is the other side, I made it into a pillow.

I'm also working on a wall hanging
made with 3D Pinwheel blocks...


I want it to have quilting that looks like the wind blowing, 

a little bird appliqued onto the grass 

and some yellow flowers I made from old sock tops and dyed with Lemonaid Kool-Aid.


they smell good...



I have the quilting lines drawn on and
the little bird appliqued on...



picked a light blue for back fabric and
small polka dot for the binding.
