Yarn is done!

Hello everyone,

It's been a productive couple of days. I've finished my yarn clean up and have a couple of pictures to show it off. Here goes:

Most of the yarn is here. Top shelf has misc. bundles (whether skeins or balls). Next shelf has mostly my crochet cotton.

The very bottom shelf here (really the next to the bottom shelf) is a couple of special projects I have going. 
I've started working on my sewing area because I have to make several sewing projects and need it cleaned. Pictures will come as I get it done.

Work has continued..

Hello everyone,

I've resumed work in the studio. I went down Friday for several hours and several hours Saturday. Started working on the tangle of yarn I have fown there. It's been insane the nest yarn becomes when left on it's own for a few months. It's beginning to look better, maybe another day or two of work and I can take a picture to show you.

Do you know we have less than 3 months until Christmas? So, with that in mind I've started working on a few gifts. Gifts will be simple this year. Will tell you more later (don't want to spill the beans if anyone "special" is watching).

More work tomorrow on the studio, plus work upstairs too.

Decorating for the Fall

Hello Everyone,

Well, the decorating is nearly done, I've got a couple things to get and put in the bathroom. It's sometimes hard to decorate (something I love to do), especially around the Barbies and Tonka trucks. Most of the decorating goes into the dining room and main bathroom. Thought you might like to see what I have done so far.

Here is the living room:

The arrangement I made a little over a week ago. This is on the entertainment system. I'm hoping to get some pieces of logs to add to this arrangement.

This is my Scarecrow couple. They are about 3 ft tall and I think they are cute (daughter thinks they are creepy).
 Here is my dining room all decked out:

The side board. I collect salt and pepper shakers, Can you tell?

From the other end of the side board.

The table center piece. This is the everyday placemats. I have some napkins that match the table cloth and a white lace table cloth that will go over this one for Thanksgiving day.
 Right now the only decoration I have in the main bathroom is my little apple basket scarecrow but I will be putting up my fall leaves in several places (photos will follow when I get them done but I have to climb to get them and I'm not up to climbing right now).
My little apple basket scarecrow. He's about 18" tall. Don't you love his little black cat?
So far my guess is you have figured out my favorite fall decorating item is scarecrows. Here is the set I have in the kitchen. The girl is an angel scarecrow. Love them.
Still not able to get the studio but am really praying I can get down there this weekend.

Hanging out at the Dentist?

Hello Everyone,

So glad yesterday is over. Spent the part of day at the dentist and the rest in bed. I don't know about you but I have a love/hate with my dentist. Now don't get me wrong, he's a really nice guy but think I would like him better if he had a different vocation. Why do I hate the dentist...obvious reasons...pain, noise of machines, pain, shots, oh and did I mention pain. Why do I love the dentist...makes my mouth healthier.

Since I didn't make it to the studio yesterday and I'm working on decorating for fall and cooking a big meal (my son and his fience are coming over), there won't be any big posts. I will be showing off my decorations tomorrow.

A Day of Celebration

Hello everyone,

Today has been a great day of celebration at my home. My granddaughter turned 8 today. Eight? I'm not old enough to have an eight year granddaughter. Well, I am and very proud of my monkey (almost called her little monkey).

Here are a couple of pictures of the great day.

Her favorite things: Horses!

Her favorite present. She loves to dress up.
It's been a great day. Hope that I can get down to the studio Monday. I will be quiet tomorrow because it is Sunday.
