Working on Decor

The weather has been so gorgeous of late …. nice warm days with no humidity. We call these Indian summer days. I wonder how that name came about?

These are perfect days for getting work done around the home.

So, one day, I decided to play. We are in the process of revamping our back garden a bit and we decided to remove a couple of shrubs that were grossly overgrown. Clipped a stack of branches and put on a coat of varnish. These will be used for a winter decoration later.

A year ago, I had purchased a number of wooden decorations for Xmas. They were on my list to do, so (instead of staring at them and thinking about painting them) they are now painted up and ready for decorating later.

It was a good day!

Good for you, but you can stare at them now just to admire them not thinking that you have to paint them.

Those twigs are great -- you know, if you had a wall hanging with tabs those would make great quilt holders...

Yes, well done and your mini quilt you sent away looks lovely. The bag you made is very very glassy too!
