little stool

When we went to the thrift stores the other day I saw this little stool I needed to sit on to play my keyboard. Dear hubby said it looked dirty so I didn’t get it. It was only $3. I went back today and got it and made a new cover for it – I love it ! ! 🙂


more stuff

another night of not-so-good sleep – had to go to the next room because of loud mr. husband. found this 9 patch quilt I made after reading some Amish fiction.

The reason mr. husband was so loud is because he was very tired from driving early in the morning to a class and seminar and then driving back – about a 10 hour day, so I made these 3 baskets also yesterday.

can’t sleep basket

I found this odd kind of quilted pink material yesterday and I was so excited about making a basket out of it. It ended up I couldn’t sleep, so I got up and made the pink basket, and then hit the hay again around 1:40 or 12:40 or something like that.
Also picturing my toothbrush rag heart shaped rug that is coming along nicely using flannel fabric. I have to put it on the back burner for a while because of my hands being too sore from this crafty work and need to do other things. I actually repotted some plants this morning and there is always organizing, cleaning and cooking to do ! ! !
