Quilt ladder, mail goodies and painting


With all the quilts that I’ve made and more to come, storage is starting to become an issue.

Painting our home is still on-going and our living room is getting re-arranged. Bonus - there will be room for a quilt ladder.

Now, I didn’t want something fancy …. actually, more cottage looking. DH came to the rescue and made this ladder for me. As we speak, it is being painted white and soon will be put to use.

Last week, goodies in the mail came from Jane. Jane was having a giveaway and I was the bonus winner. Jane actually had only two items for her draw, but her DD2 was determined that the last name in the basket would have chocolate. My name was last, and I got chocolate and fabric. Thank you, Jane and DD2! :o)

Painting with kitties has been an interesting venture. Hank has already gotten a tail full of paint from brushing up against some door frames. This is what we have to do to keep the kitties away from fresh paint. We finally got the paint off her tail, but it took two of us to do the job. Luckily, she stayed away from furniture, etc. while we were trying to quietly catch her.

Have a great day!

The ladder is a great idea...I keep thinking something like that would be an ideal for storing quilts...
Glad you like you goodies...I've told the DD2 too :o)

Interesting method of keep the cats off the fresh paint.. :o) I can just imagine the theatrics involved in catching a cat with a wet tail!

Congratulations on the new ladder and the goodies from Jane, too. I'm extra excited about the ladder though. It'll be nice to see the display of your quilts.

The LeeHaven Fan Club is happy Hank isn't painted anymore although Kanga thinks maybe she wanted to dress up for Halloween!
