Bloggers’ Quilt Festival

What I’ve Been Up To

I can’t believe how long it has been since I updated this blog! Shocking! Whatever have I been doing? Shopping for furniture and paint and television. Okay, I confess the last two pictures are only there to show you the tables. The chairs are ancient.  I also started a new project to turn what used …
