Refinished

I got this step stool several years ago from friends who were moving out of state. I took it not only because it’s my favorite color but w/the intention of refinishing it.


When I found this lovely canvas print at Goodwill around the same time, I knew it was meant to be.


I just didn’t think it would take me 3 years!


But I can now tick this off my “To Do” list!

Beeing Social

I finally made it to Michigan to visit Katy.

We met through the “blogisphere” when I read she visited her son in AZ. And I was beside myself to learn he lived around the corner from me!

Even though I invited myself to MI, she and her hubby were great sports about it.

She even gave me this t-shirt.

She has a beautiful home and gave me permission to take and post as many pics as I wanted. If there aren’t enough pics in this post, there are more on my Instagram.

There were quilts everywhere!

This tall vintage ladder loaded w/quilts was one of my favorite attractions.

I enjoyed my visit there. My only complaint being how quickly the time flew by.

We spent a lot of time in her phenomenal sewing studio.

She took me around the area. It was divine. All woody and green.

We visited a little light house and climbed the 80+ steps to the top.

To me, the weather was perfect, if a little cloudy.

Katy, I’m very grateful we are friends and  looking forward to visiting again whether here in AZ or in MI.

And I am smitten w/the mitten.

A Thread for Life

An Asian Beauty

There is a rule in my house.  ANYONE who comes over, for whatever reason, MUST visit my sewing room and see the current projects I’m working on.  Period. End of discussion.

So you can imagine how it is for someone who actually lives in my house. I’m constantly calling my middle son in to see what I’m working on.

He is always excited about what I’m working on and gives great feedback.

Anyway, he fell in love w/the Asian fabric I used to make the mug rugs from this post

And he requested I use it to make a Hand Strap Clutch for a special someone.

And not wanting to disappoint, I did it.20170331_205440

Voila!
