BURRRR….I am freezing my pootie off after taking Sony out for her morning duties. But the coffee is on and an exciting day is planned. I am meeting Mom today to do a little antique hunting.
And today is the day we are buying the empty lot next to our house. (Here it is, as viewed from the living room window.)
It’s a very nice size and to tell the truth it’s The BG who wants it. I’m not a huge fan of the extra leaf raking, and lawn mowing that will come with expanding our yard! He has big plans to fence it in, espalier some fruit trees along the back, and hold some big, bad, badminton tournaments there. So I’m excited if he is excited! LOL
And later tonight I plan to machine quilt some new mini quilts I made up. I made a split rail block , but used 4 strips instead of the traditional 3. I wanted to make it kind of “make-do” looking so I didn’t put sashings on the sides.
Then I thought, “hmmm that looks weird.”
So the I made another one with the sashing on the sides.
Then I decided I did like it without the sashing on the sides, so I made one more like the first one! HA what a fickle pickle I am.
The winner of the quilt kit is commenter #5 Brenda, send me an email with your address and I will get that mailed out to you!
Have a great weekend folks !!!
