Nothing feeds the center so much as creative work, even humble kinds like cooking and sewing...Baking bread, weaving cloth, putting up preserves, teaching and singing to children...

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.
