Loose Ends

So it is STILL raining like crazy here in Michigan. There are puddles in the back yard, and the eves were so full that it started overflowing and pouring into our basement window well. We had to put a bucket in our basement to catch the water. The BG just went out and rigged up an umbrella over the window well outside to help keep the water out =)

It is times like these that make me happy that we are just renting a town house. I seriously don’t miss owning a house much at all.  Plus someone else mows the lawn and rakes the leaves!!! WOO HOO.

 

 

 

Here are some of the things I have been up to today

I went into my sewing room, lit a fall-ie candle and starting diggin in.

 

 

I found my staple gun and stapled these hand appliqued blocks into a frame my dad made for me. I had the blocks secured in the frame with batting and cork board but they kept falling out.  They are’t gonna move now!! ha

I will probably go poke around in my sewing room some more, and maybe just maybe do some bindings (yuck.)
Later gators,
