I've Done It Again!

     I saw the new piece by The Nebby Needle called "She Has Found Her Home" and thought it would be a perfect gift for my sister.  After living in Dallas, Georgia for nearly 3 years, my sister Georgia and her husband Bob, have bought a home here in NC.  It's under seven miles to their house so I'm very excited.  I think what I'd like to do, is finish this piece exactly as it is pictured on the front.  Here's a picture of it.  I ordered it knowing that I have plenty of other things that I haven't

even started yet, and there are already other things that I'm working on.  In other words......I just added to my stash! Ya'll do understand though....

     I am working away on the beautiful "Serenity Harbor" and haven't come any closer to catching up than I was before! I am finding though that by working a 10 by 10 stitch square I feel like I'm moving along a little faster.  It certainly is easier.  Never too old to find a new way to do the things you enjoy.

     The weather seems to becoming milder now.  I'm looking forward to getting the garden areas cleaned up for the winter months, and starting fresh next spring.  Going to be getting rid of a couple of vines that have taken over.  Want to get a lot of mulch come spring and cover a lot of area with it.  It's so hot and humid here during the summer that, that will help us out and help keep the ground nicer as well for the plants.

     I follow one blog that I just love, and this dear lady uses lots of chalk paint to change up her furniture.  Have loved seeing the changes and all, so finally decided to go for it.  I had a good neighbor and friend of hours make me an island type table for my kitchen.  He made it to my specifications and I just loved it when he brought it over! Then I decided to finish it with red chalk paint with a touch of sage green here and there.  Then finished it with black polish and three coats of clear poly.  Here is a before and an after picture.  I love it, and it's the perfect height for working in the kitchen.  Tables are too low for me and the counters are a bit too high.  The table I had Matt make is right in between.  I'm looking forward to working with the chalk paint again.  I love the results.

     Once again....I'll let ya'll go.  I'm looking forward to sitting back after a day with allergy symptoms and just going to bed early.  Love each and every one of you.  Until next time, please stay well, safe and remember to "Feel the colors".
