There hasn't been much quilting going on in this house lately. I am still working on the borders for that Stack'N Whack. It is a good job no one is paying me by the hour to finish that quilt because they would never afford it when I am done!
These are two pictures of my husband painting the stair well. It made me nervous to see him on his homemade scaffolding as he painted. My husband paints and I clean up after him. The arrangement seems to be working.
This has proven to be the perfect opportunity to sort through things in the hall closets and thoroughly clean and wash things in and on top of cabinets as they are put back in their places. Some things will never be returned--they will just be discarded.
You can really see the contrast in the old wall colour - white - and the new paint. Quite a change!
What you can't see in this second picture is the ladder that is holding up the plank on the far end. The plank is balanced on the top of the ladder on one end and on the upstairs floor on the nearest end. Notice the coffee cup--never too far away!
Others have not only shown us their pincushions, but have shown us the other treasures in their quilt studios as well. These are three little Hallmark Christmas ornaments that my mother has given me over the years. Each one has a "quilty" theme so I don't want to put them away after Christmas. These ornaments live in my quilt studio year round.
