It's been four months since I've posted -- can't hardly believe it. What have I been doing? Oh, a little of this and a little of that! We've been hit with the drought that half the country has been hit with -- good for me because I only had to mow a few times all summer! But now fall is in full swing, and the trees are dropping their leaves -- which means getting out the mulching mower -- I do not rake!
We had a "quilters' garage sale" - got rid of some old fabric and lots of scraps as well as other garage sale stuff like the "Pack and Play". I did okay -- Kris did really well, but she had more "stuff".
I've been trying to get the fall outside work done -- up today is taking down screens, power washing the porches and washing windows.
Hasn't been a lot of quilting going on, but have managed to finish some applique projects and prep more. This first one is a quilt that was in the Fall Primitive Quilts magazine (love that magazine, btw). This was fun and easy and quick.
Next is"Fred - there are enough Jacks around" designed by Kris and she also gave me her leftover orange and some black squares so I could whip this one up. The applique took no time at all and I used a fabric I bought last year for the border.
I've tried my hand at making soap and laundry detergent this summer -- just for fun. The laundry soap is so easy and works great, so I'll sell some of it for our "Parable of Talents" project at church -- always fun to raise a little money for the church. I've also been doing the Power Point for church and helping out the financial secretary whenever she needs me.
That's about it for now -- time to get busy making hay while the sun shines!
