We have been very productive here for November 🙂
Where I am set up for hand piecing now… is the part of the table I set my quilted item on for hand quilting… keeps the dirt and my sweet animals off until they are ready 🙂
Behind me is the design board my honey made me 🙂
We found shelving on Craigslist for free and some for cheap that has really helped us reorganize the garage 🙂
|Don’t look at the unorganized shelf… my honey say 🙂|
The cabinet is actually one we got for FREE and was originally used at a local city fire hall… it is really heavy and all wood with magnets to hold the doors closed!
So check your local Craigslist for finds! I even found some quilting fabric there a couple weeks ago… more on that when I use it though 🙂
My daughter has been busy… greeting Halloween
Getting an eye check up
And hanging with friends 🙂
She also needed a chest so we found this great one … on Craigslist… for $40.00 and it is HEAVY and all wood!
And in her room… the thank you pic we sent to the people that sold it to us for so cheap 🙂
And in doing so she cleaned her room for the first time this month! lol Okay first time in SEVERAL months… but it was clean that day! Give thanks for what we can right?!!
Daisy has been frolicking and enjoying the fall sunny day we had today for a bit before the overcast skies returned…. check out the aloe in the top left of this pic too!
My honey made a hangar for the hammock to be stored when we aren’t using it… very cool!
And when we are using it I just finished a quilt to abate the windy days and cooler nights that will be greeting us more and more into winter time for the east coast of Florida!
Doesn’t that look inviting??? I love how “quilty” the quilt turned out! I will be sharing the blog post about it linked at the beginning of this post to several linky parties! This is my fave finish so far! We have slept under it a few nights already… just cuz! lol
When we moved the hammock from it “storage spot” we found a friend finding refuge behind it… can you tell what it is???
|a sleeping froggy!|
And finally… I have taken a stab at hand piecing… this is what I have done so far… it will be bigger and better… learning with every stitch. For the record I started this on November 3, 2013. I have given myself a month to hand piece and hand quilt what will be table toppers for family Christmas presents… Do you hand piece??? Do you hand quilt??? Would you be interested in classes if you knew someone locally???
Hope you have a completely crafty November and don’t forget to share it all on your blog so we can see what you are up to too! It is fun to share 🙂
