bathroom ceiling

Before...and after...Wednesday night, I had an idea! Mark hates when I get those! Since I have the "spa tub" in our bathroom I thought that it should look like a real "spa". So Kelly and I painted the ceiling to look like clouds. I wanted the effect like you get when you are in a real spa so that when I'm sitting in the jacuzzi tub I can lookup and see the clouds. It took us maybe 3 hours total to tape, paint and put the clouds in. It looks really good, I just have to get used to the blue.

Happy Thanksgiving

May your stuffing be tasty, May your turkey be plump, May your potatoes and gravy never a lump. May your yams be delicious And your pies take the prize, And may your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off your thighs! Happy Thanksgiving!

As of 1:30 yesterday, Friday, I am officially on vacation for 10 days!! Kelly my daughter is flying in tonight for Thanksgiving. First time in 10 years she says. Doesn't seem that long to me. Tomorrow I have the girls for a week, Steven and Ronna are going to Hawaii. Hmmm. tough decision there...I would have picked Hawaii also! Marian and I are hosting a tea at her house for our Friendship group next month. I am making these adorable little stockings for everyone. A while ago we started our group. We all submitted "a middle" part of a quilt, every4 weeks we pass the quilt onto the next person and you add something to it. So when we have our tea, we are going to see our quilts for the first time since we made the middle. They will all be gorgeous I'm sure.
This red quilt is this months Friday night quilt at the cottage. The pattern is called "Balsam Fir". It came in a package of 4 patterns and I love them all. "quick as a wink" is the package name.

This brown one is Octobers Friday night that I never posted. It is called "Delectable Cakes" .
I have just finished quilting a quilt last night for a friend, have another loaded and am picking up 3 more at Monday's night class. Busy, busy. Plus Mark will be home the ENTIRE week with us all. Ahhh... I hope I get everyting done! I have 2 house projects I want to do also. Oh boy, maybe I can have Mark do those to keep him busy while I am doing all my stuff! hehehehe

On my day off I did this... I stayed up till the wee hours of the morning sewing, woke up at 5:30, said good-bye to Mark, he went fishing, went back to bed for 2 hrs and finished this quilt I think by noon. The full picture is not a good picture but you can see the twisted patchwork part. But what I love is the redwork that I put in the centers. Love my little Deco machine.. Finished up my quilt from the last Friday night but I forgot to take a picture. Darn! This Friday is the next one, so I hope I have time to post it tomorrow.
