 Happy Sunday my friends!  Hope your week has been a great one and full of accomplishments and joyful events as well! We have had a busy week here at the cabin...  my honey filled the dumpster in a 2 week time frame !!!  All by himself too !!!  He wouldn't let me help as he was afraid I'd get hurt or fall on the steep hill in our side yard... so I entertained myself keeping track of Molly and keeping the coffee flowing and the food available and ready at a moments notice for protein and energy for my honey :) The dumpster folks were excellent if you live in the North Georgia or sw North Carolina area... they were prompt with drop off and pick up and clear about what was ok to use this dumpster for and what was not allowed.  So we have 1 load to go to our main dump of small appliances and things that didn't fit their requirements to still get rid of but we can do that anytime! lol Since the pick up of the dumpster Rick and I have enjoyed catching up on rest and relaxation...

New project / Old project .... Done Projects coming Soon!

Hi There & Welcome to my blog.... Today I have TONs of stuff to share but I want you to know first.... YOU MATTER! Around here it has been a busy week! My honey has finished the side porch on the cabin.... The outbuilding is all set too... Now to finish cleaning out both and getting ready to sell! In the meantime I got a passel of fun stuff from a quilty friend who wanted to downsize some of Jenny Doan's MSQC Christmas box and she refused to let me pay ... even for shipping to NC from VA!!!!

She said I was her Christmas angel and all this gifts I made from her husbands clothes made her feel joy... the card had a personal thanks in it and the Walmart gift card was a real blessing too 💕 By the end of this week the joy sign found a way to be decor in our home...

 Are you are resolution maker???! Or a word maker???? Did you do either for 2023... would love to hear your conclusion on which or neither or something different in the comments below.... I love my word... Joyful... and ponder on it while I am sewing. Speaking of sewing... I won some sharp shears by LDH on Sewsweetness.com Sunday night show give away a couple weeks back... They trimmed this bed runner I machine quilted with wavy organic lines too!  It was so smooth and easy to use these new shears too! After I was done with machine quilting.... I sewed the binding to the front.... very little remained of the 5 strips I cut! And took a photo of the front... And the back side... Then sat down to sew down the binding to the back side after trimmed and ready to roll! 80" x 20 " takes a minute to hand sew the binding down.... So it took me a few days and washing and drying occurred above and it is ready to gift... I just have a pillow insert to add to my friends cache of gifts I m

Happy 2023! We made a round trip this past week getting us home yesterday from visiting my parents!  We looked at different areas of Kentucky to move to that are both convenient to them and all my kids!   We also had a Christmas celebration while there and my mom started her first piecing quilt project :)  We gifted my dad a "Weather Station" which is a device that measures all sorts of things inside and outside your home location where you keep this station... It gives you temperature inside and outside.... time where you are.... date, day of the week and sooo much more... as much as you wanna pay for lol! The last gift to be opened was my mom's quilt... Fresh out of the washer and dryer It was worth all the time, love and energy put into the quilt to see her loving it sooo much y'all!  Isn't that the main reason we make a quilt anyway... to see it enjoyed!  My mom carried her quilt to bed at night and back out in the morning... she is so excited about HER quilt!
