Some girls sit in backwards and it's no wonder the eggs end up on the floor.

These 'bed risers' came in the mail for me today. I have this 5 legged table out on my sun porch for cutting and I was liking cutting there so I decided to make it a permanent cutting table. Trouble was, I had to order two sets of 4 in order to get 5 risers but oh well. I dumped over the cat food trying to get them in their spots. The pets can clean that up. Too much work!
I painted the designs on the floor when we added the porch over 20 yrs ago.
I wanted you to see my transom window from a barn and what I did with it. I know it's nothing new but I'm hoping it will inspire me to get busy and do something with the other 4 or 5 windows that I have. They were meant to be in the retreat bedrooms. Now I just have to make a few blocks to match the themes of the bedrooms. The above one is screwed into the wall above the patio door.
You know the type of items you would buy when you get your first place away from home? These are the type of things that are falling into my cart at Walmart. Brady is about to be home owner and I don't forsee a wedding shower in the future (no steady girlfriend) so I have been picking up odds n ends for him. I'm looking forward to unloading some excess furniture and dishes and such......clean sweep.
I hope you all got to see the lunar eclipse last night. Totally cool.
Take care, Patsy

Maxi's favorite spot is in a box on my desk. She has two to pick from and this one is her favorite. It came with a quilting kit inside from Country Sampler in Spring Green. Good taste, kitty.
This is my ongoing project of cutting up strips into usable sizes. Pressing, cutting, pressing, cutting.
This is Easter in a box. Today or tomorrow I am putting away "Winter" and the snowmen and getting out Easter. Soon the retreat will have no reminders of winter, unless you look outside of course.

This one I treasure. It was made in school by my youngest son, Cody. He is 24 yrs old now.
I still love wearing this one!
