One Square Left

The 5th square is done.  I just have one square left to stitch on this quilt.  I see the light at the end of the tunnel.

My Quilt Wall is Coming Down

I just love to put my beautiful projects on my quilt wall.  I walk by, look, and smile at what I am in the process of making.  I also lay in my bed and look at what is being displayed.  We are going to have the house painted on the inside, so that means that what is on the walls needs to come down.  I have also packed the majority of my quilting.  My sewing machine, my stash of fabric, and my UFO'S.  I have saved my stitching and my English paper piecing.  I am hoping that we can get the house looking good, so that it will sell quickly.

Making music

One thing that I have been doing with my free time is playing the piano.  I always wanted to learn how, but never got very far.  Raising kids, working, and going to school made it difficult.  I am taking lessons from a friend.

making headway on the flower bed

It's been awhile since I last posted.  I have managed to plant some of the flowers that I bought.  I have also added some rock toward the back of the flower bed and some mulch to help keep out the weeds.  My daughter Stacie has helped me plant the flowers.  It is looking better.

attempt at gardening

I bought some flowers the other day to liven my garden up.  I attempted several years ago, but the grass eventually took over. Plus I was going to school and working.  I didn't have time to care for a garden.
