Dear Santa

This girl is wishing for a new wood burning stove for Christmas. It's kind of hard to miss this big hole in the wall. Off to try to make it a little prettier. I'll let you know what I come up with.
Enjoy the day. Staying inside until heading off to work. It's a bit chilly out today.

Well the Weather Outside is Frightful

We're getting rain today and it's really foggy. It's a perfect day to stay inside where it's toasty warm. The perfect day to start on some Christmas decorating. I only have a couple of hours before work, but we'll see what I can get accomplished.

Here's a small start...a little goodie from a wonderful friend. Thank you for the bucket of cheer OLM.
Enjoy your day friends~Becky

Our "New" Old House

Hello friends. I thought I'd show you some pics of our new home. My hubby and I closed on our dream home two weeks ago and we've been working on it ever since. It is an old log and stone home. She has beautiful bones, but needs quite a bit of work. We are trying to get a bunch of things done before moving in. area a couple of pics for you. 

Living room...need to find a wood burning stove.

 Other side of the living room. Stairs go to the master bedroom.
 Kitchen...already peeled the wallpaper off the walls. I'm not a huge fan of the cabinets, but they are staying for now.
Log walls..these are exposed in the hall, the bathroom, and my sewing room.

 Just a peek at some of the beautiful wall paper that will be coming down.
So now you know what I've been up to. 

Enjoy the rest of your week~Becky

February Finish

Good Thursday Morning. Wow...look at me...posting two days in a row. Just wanted to show you my February Finish. I really shouldn't count this as a finish because it's a piece of an antique quilt, but I did put a binding on it. So...technically it's a finish. It's about the only thing I got done this month :(

Today is closing day on our new home, so it will be a busy day. I'll post a few pics soon.

Enjoy your day~Becky

My New Hooked Rug

Good Morning. I know I've been absent again for quite a while. I have the best intentions to post, but something always seems to come up. Between working, working with my son on his Eagle Scout Project, and all the things that come with buying a new home, I am just tired all the time. you know the condensed version of what I've been up to recently.

I just had to show you what I just bought from a sweet blogger. Robin from Bird in the Hand Primitives created this beauty and I just had to have it. I wish I could show you where it is going, but to tell the went right back into a box. I can't wait to bring it out again when we get into our new home. If you don't know Robin...make sure to check out her blog. She creates some wonderful goodies, including patterns. She is also very generous & gives away a lot of her patterns as freebies.

Have a wonderful day!! I think I'm going to take some time to blog hop a bit before heading off to work.

Today's Project

Good morning.

I spent the last couple of days pulling wools and cutting out pieces for my newest project. Sorry for the sideways picture...I can't get it to flip. I'll be stitching this one down for a while. A nice wooly project to keep me warm for the next few days (hopefully not weeks).

This warm wooly project will be heading to a friends home when it is finished. I sure hope she likes it.

Have a wonderful day my friends!!

First Finish of the Year...I Guess Not

Hello there blogging buddies.

 I finished my brown and pink quilt and was going to show you today, but I have lost the ability to post pics on my blog. Might be a while until I figure it out. I'm not very computer savvy. Any help would be appreciated!!

Have a good day~Becky

2013 Goals

I have decided to set some goals for myself in this New Year. I have decided that I would like to take some time to do some things for me. One of those goals is to spend more time with family and friends just enjoying their company. I did just that today....I went to lunch with a girlfriend. We had a wonderful time. It was so nice to just sit and talk and enjoy a wonderful meal.
Another goal set is to completely finish at least one quilted project a month. I have so many projects that they could keep me busy for the rest of my life. I am not kidding...and bad girl that I am...I keep on adding to the pile.
So today I worked on a few of my projects. I decided to start with a super simple one to get me motivated. A simple little quilt made up of 9 four patch blocks and a border. Here are the cut squares all ready to go.
My nine completed 4 patch blocks.

The 9 blocks all sewn together....

And the finished top with the border added.

I got it quilted and the binding sewn on. I just need to hand sew the binding to the back of the quilt and it will be finished. I'm planning on completing it tonight.
I also quilted another small quilt that I had sitting around and quilted 2 little mini quilts. These all need bindings yet, but I feel I accomplished quite a bit today. Now to just keep going.
I have also set a couple of other personal & professional goals for the year, but won't bore you with those.
Have a wonderful evening~Becky
