What did I do this summer

My grandaughter spent time with Nana and Papa this summer and we had a great time making crafts.
Here are a few that my grand made.

We have so much fun thinking of new and sometimes old projects and I believe that she has so much fun making glitter houses. These are her originals. Nana stands by and helps out when called apon.
Such talent , going to follow in her Nanas footsteps.  HA HA!!

 This is her glitter house. She is only 9 yrs old and she sure did a great
job on this little number.

She  also made a Christmas stocking, (If you recall I also have another blog White Weathered Hutch)
so I hope I did not confuse you. StoneGable also made hers in white. This is where you will find the tutorial.

She also made a cute wall hanging, made with moss and pine cones and sheet music.

Also this cute pumpkin, Nana made one too.

Now there is a chill in the air and the kiddies are back in school, it's
time for this Nana to think about some serious sewing.

First I must bring out the fall decorations.

How was your summer???

until next time

Thanks for stopping by..

It's August and the nights are getting cooler.

Before you know it the kiddies are back in school.

See you in September  !!!

Thanks for all the emails wondering about my where abouts. I'm fine!! Needed a break!!

working in the garden

Working in the garden every day now that the weather has turned lovely.
Our vegetable garden has been in now three weeks and already the
green onions are ready to pick.

I put in tomatoes,peas,corn,carrots,swisschard,spinach,leaks,sweet onions,basil,
egg plant,sweet peppers,zuccini,cucunbers,chives, pumpkins and sunflowers.
That should keep us going for awhile.

Today my grandaughter was over and we made a garden man.

While visiting Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict she had a great tutorial ,
on how to make a garden man.

So we gathered my pots, twine, corks,and a long stick and began to make
a garden man.
We added some plants from the garden for his hair.
We think he turned out just great.

We had time to clean out the pond since the birds have been busy
taking baths.

If you look closely you can see the fish.
Have a great week!
until next time, Happy Gardening!

I'm joining in the fun @ DebbieDoo's Copy cat challenge

Antiquing for the first time this season

Actually it was Saturday . Such a beautiful day in the neighborhood.. Soooo
we decided to go on a road trip. Out came the 49 for the first time this year.
We drove 1 1/2 hours and ended up here. Queensville Antiques. 16,000 sq ft of
antiques and collectables.
I was on the hunt for white ironstone. Jugs, plates etc. To add to my collection.
Upon entering you see lots of eye candy.

After walking for 2 1/2 hours we headed for home. Can you believe it. EMPTY HANDED.
Oh well we had a great day out and a good spin in the old 49 Ford p/u.

If you are wondering about my labels being white weathered hutch drop by my other blog.

Aprons for Mom, daughter and American girl doll

Aprons for Mom, Daughter and American girl doll.
Well I had hoped to have these finished for Christmas but.....

So I did the next best thing and had them finished for my daughters birthday.
The pattern was for Mom, daughter and American girl doll.
So I was on a roll and made all three.

My daughter loved hers and my grandaughter squeeled with delight and one for her
American girl doll. (In case you are wondering WHITE WEATHERED HUTCH is my other blog.)

I ordered this fabric from Avonport Discount Centre, Avonport, N.S. last week and it
arrived licky split.
2 1/2 mtres of turkey red... as per Kaaren at the Painted Quilt.
When I had seen her fabric DSCN0875
I knew I needed , wanted, had to have, soooo
Kaaren graciously gave me the info from the selvege edge and I called her quilt shop in N.S.
Here is my fabric, 2 1/2 metres of Turkey red. Ohhhh it's perfect.

A while back I had odered this reproduction fabric from Sew Unique Creations. I held on to it not knowing
that I was waiting for this pop of red.
Well here is the red and the reproduction fabric.
Doesn't it go so well together.
Not sure of the quilt design, but I do know that it will be a lap quilt.
My days of making queen quilts are done.
until next time,

                          Have a great day!
