30 Blocks!

This morning after breakfast I went out and spent some much needed time with the horses before the rain set in for the day. Spending time with them always relaxes me. Anyway, I took them out a bag full of Honeycomb cereal. They love that stuff, eat it right out of my hand. I remember Ole Jim, my old mule that I loved so much, he loved those things. Honeycombs and animal crackers were his favorite. I used to have to hand feed him animal crackers while they were putting shoes on him to keep him still.

After I came back in, I cleaned up the house real quick and colored my hair. Yep, it was time. My hair is naturally very dark so the first sign of grey really shows. I will be turning 40 next month but the way that I was looking you would have thought I was turning 90. LOL! Oh well, life goes on.

While I was up in my sewing room today, I snapped a few photos of Hunter. I know they are black & white, but for some reason after playing around with them, I could get them changed back. :) This was taken from the top of the stairs.
Doesn't he look comfy? He was watching the movie Rio.

I worked on my log cabin blocks today and now have a total of 30 of them. As of right now I want somewhere between 144 and 168 of them just depending on the setting that I use. I figure I will just keep moving them around until I finally decide. I really enjoy making these things.

Here is my ever faithful companion, Smokey. This little guy makes every step that I make. He always has to be somewhere near me. He is getting old and the stairs are hard on him so I have to carry him up and down every time. If something happens and I have to take something upstairs and can't carry him at the same time he stands at the bottom of the stairs and cries, breaks my heart to hear him do that. Can you see the thread on his face?

This is what I will be tackling tomorrow afternoon! Yep, my sewing room looks like a bomb has gone off in it. I've been so busy quilting these quilts for people that I just haven't had a chance to put everything away. Can you see that pile of quilts back there? There is a loveseat buried somewhere under it. :) Just to give you an idea of how tall that pile is...that wall behind it is 12ft tall. This is not counting the pile of quilts that are downstairs. All of these have to be refolded and put away.....somewhere. That is a problem right now because we have so many things that are not finished. I need the linen closet finished so that I can store a bunch of them in there, the upstairs bedrooms need to be finished, I will put several in there. Actually, I'm not sure where they will all go, but I do know that they can't stay where they are now.

I guess that is all for tonight. I want to relax a little before bed.

That is a serious pile of quilts!!!
What a view you must have from that window. Nice sewing space!

Oh wow! You need to have Richard build you a wall to wall glass cabinet to show off those quilts.
