Painting and Quilting

A quick post to let you know what I am up to........

After 31 years of "contractor white" in the basement stairway I got a sample of a new color and rolled as far as I could with the roller extension........loved it so that is the color it is now, with the help of my son and his wife.....he was the "ladder man" and she did a great job cutting in.......

I haven't painted the ceiling in the basement stairway in many years, you can see is was time!

My daughter-in-law was brave enough to get on the ladder and do all the "cutting in" for me.....we painted the ceiling first, then did the walls.  My son was making sure his wife was safe, thankful for their help.

What I didn't get pictures of was all the dust that I made the day before when I was sanding all the spackle, I had a few "blemishes that needed to be fixed, needless to say the kitchen and living room are covered with a fine coat of white dust!  Fall cleaning will be in my future, not looking forward to spending time with that chore, but first I am going to sand the steps and refinish them, hoping to get another 31 years out of them.

Finished quilting this the other night, I have added the binding and have been turning it while watching football............
Hoping that once things slow down this Fall I will finally be able to spend more time with my quilting machine, I have had it for a few years now and have not used it much......I have many quilts tops that I can use for practice just need to "do it'!

That's just a few of the things I have been busy working on since my last post.


  1. Good job on the painting! You are sprucing things up in your world too. The quilt looks great. My plan is to get back to my quilting too.

  2. a house always keeps you busy but looks great so far...and i do like your quilt very much...looks log cabin cozy...

    1. Yes, my house sure does keep me busy....hoping to finish the steps soon. The quilt is on it's way to FL in the morning.....


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.
