Here are quilts sent to me –
Here’s some of what I’ve been working on:
I have a high shelf on one wall of my living room – everything up there is a dust collector so I decided it was time to wash everything. These folk art houses are so precious to me – Connie and I both bought several of these houses in the ‘90’s.
This cleaning took me almost to the edge of the kitchen so tomorrow I will continue. Deep cleaning could kinda grow on a person – it’s very satisfying – haha!
The paper mache rabbits are antique candy containers from Germany.
When I opened one of the antique trunks today, my heart nearly stopped. There was Janey’s coat that I have searched everywhere for – I was sure I’d find it in the grove but when I didn’t I decided she must have gotten it caught in a brush pile and walked right out of it. I think I probably put it in that trunk because I didn’t want to see it after she was killed on the highway – and I forgot it. A sweet but sad reminder –
Look at the little note in this old box:
I have more to post tomorrow – I’m considering the large pincushion display case – emptying it, cleaning and reorganizing – I’ve added lots of pincushions in the past couple of years that have just been tossed in the door.
A new reader asked me to explain the Dirty Dozen – on July 1 we all picked 12 unfinished projects and numbered them one through twelve. Each month on the first day I pull a number from the fishbowl and post it here on the blog. You agree to have it finished by the end of the month. If you’re just starting you could pick 6 UFO’s so you’d be done with the rest of us by July 1. And here’s the real scoop – use this blog as inspiration to finish something whether it has a number or not.
Just a note – if you ask me a question, I will answer in the comments section – it’s up to you to follow up and read it.
That’s it – tomorrow starts another week in the winter of 2022.
