It’s a foggy, dull and overcast day here in paradise as you can see from this view from an upstairs window but I’m not complaining.
Mr. Painted Quilt is away for the day fishing with his buddies which leaves me and my
shadows sidekicks, Frankie and Mac, alone to do as we please. I love these kind of days because it seems like I can get so much accomplished.
First on the list…clean and organize my studio. Aaahhh…so much better!
A place for everything and everything in it’s place.
Now everything is neat and tidy and I can easily see things at a glance.
Things were getting a little messy because as I’d buy new fabric or wool, I would just let it pile up on the cutting table instead of putting it away. Are you like me and just love to look at and fondle new fabric…like the ones below?
Blue shirting fabrics for a new blue and white, two-color quilt that is in the planning stages…
Along with these yummy Civil War and reproduction fabrics.
And I couldn’t resist this new solid cheddar fabric…all 5 yards of it!
I went to the farmer’s market in Annapolis Royal yesterday but because it was pouring rain, only the diehard vendors and customers were there. I bought a bushel of tomatoes along with some fresh brown mushrooms, green and red bell peppers and garlic.
I froze some of the tomatoes and the others are simmering on the stove as I write this.
Home made spaghetti sauce for dinner tonight! Are ya coming?
Did the boys help? I don’t think so!
Here’s Frankie catching some zzzzz’s on top of the warrn dryer…
And Mac’s curled up on the loveseat.
I’ve been a little remiss in telling you about some of the wonderful surprises that I’ve received in the mail recently from dear blogging friends.
Karen sent me this incredible miniature pieced heart pin which I’ve attached to my guild name tag. I just can’t imagine holding such tiny pieces, never mind sewing them. Thank you so much again, Karen.
When I opened the package from Miche’le, my heart skipped several beats.
You all know I love pin cushions and this cross stitched one has become my favorite. Of course I would never use it as a pin cushion but I keep it beside my sewing machine just to admire. More thanks and hugs to you my Kiwi friend!
The spaghetti sauce needs stirring and the dryer signal just sounded so I’d better get back to my chores.
Oh, and in the meantime, I’m diligently working on October’s FFF! (First Friday Freebie).
