Thursday Update

I have finally done a bit of sewing! 
As you know our Missionary is coming home.
That meant I needed to move all my sewing supplies out of his room.
Here is his bed with two new pillows sewn just for him;)

I didn't make the quilt, shame on me.
This was my first try at a neck roll pillow, I thought it was easy and plan to make more in the future.
Don't you just love making matching buttons! 
I made a square pillow with one side textured and one side smooth, that way both sides are useful.
There are only 5 more sleeps until this bed will be unmade!

Are you prepared?

As you may know if you live in the South or on the East Coast HuRRicane season is in full effect! 
What are you doing to be prepared?
We have 72hr kits but I always wonder if I have everything I need or would want in them.
I would love to hear what some of you who have had to use yours wish you would have had in them.
We are now keeping our eye on Katia. The remnants of Lee should bring us some rain later this week, we need it so no big issues there.

Thursday Update

It's the end of summer and I have one project that i have been working on here and there. I have been seeing this on blogs lately and have been wanting to do one. It took me awhile to find the old windows and then they did not look the way I had imagined them. They had nasty paint colors on them. So I would go out to the garage and try to sand, but it was just way too hot until about a week ago.  I like how this one is turning out. I have another matching one that is in the process of being sanded.

I want them to display all the fun things we do together with family each year. I think I will change the pictures around at the end of each summer to enjoy all winter long! I will have a total of 12 spaces. I will share the finished project after it is hung.
