Latest Finish & The Box

Here is a recent completed quilt top,  my All Star quilt,  I need to prepare the backing and then it will be ready to send off to be quilted.   I am looking forward to when this is quilted and the binding is done then I can decided where in MY house I will put it! 

Today I hope to work on the box that I found several weeks ago in our shed.  Thanks to Deb @ Proper Prim I will be using Howard Restor to try and give it a cleaning and make it a little prettier, I have already used the air compressor and blown off the dust.  Now I am going to try and lightly sand off the blue RV and try to get the paint spots off then I will be putting on gloves and Howard's wish me luck.  FYI, I have stained wood in our house before but never anything old, as a matter of fact my hubby showed me how to cut molding and I used that skill for the basement room where all my unused exercise equipment is set up!  While I wouldn't be able to get a job with as a finish carpenter I can get by.   


Have a great day!


  1. I am so excited to see how your box turns out. Love your quilt. You can see the love and talent that went into each stitch. Have a blessed week

  2. Denise your quilt is beautiful. I'm so glad you're going to find a place for it in your home. I thought you were going to cut that ladder for a quilt display rack. Get that hacksaw out girl. lol

    I'm waiting to see the box when it's finished. I'm sure it will look great. Remember that antiques aren't supposed to look perfect.

  3. Oh Denise the quilt is lovely... great job on that girl. I can' wait to see that completed and I bet you are too... that is no easy task you did there, I am proud of you.

    Thanks for the shout out. I am sneaking a peek from work right now. I wasn't expecting to see my name on

    Have a great day... I don't want to be here I want to go out and play.

    Hugs, Deb

I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
