Today I was invited to my friend Marg's home to have lunch with some quilting friends. I had a great time getting together with Marg, Heather, and Carolyn. Marg made a wonderful casserole, Carolyn made a delicious spinach salad with strawberries,  mandarin oranges, blueberries, and feta cheese, and Heather made some of her delicious home made fudge brownies. We also enjoyed some of Marg's home made date squares. It is always fun getting together with quilting friends. Here are some pictures of our get together.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I just took these goodies out of the oven. Home made apple pie and mint chocolate chip cookies. DH is back in our bush cutting wood, so I thought I would surprise him when he comes in. I thought the apple pie would go great for desert after the pork roast I am making for dinner tonight with all the fixins.
Have a great Sunday everyone.

Happy Friday everyone. Just thought I would show you all my new curtains that I just picked up this morning from the Post Office. I just finished hanging them. I got a set for each of my three windows in the living room. The color is perfect for the room. I was a little apprehensive seeing it was an online order, but I am pleased. I am still plugging away. It has been a busy week and today I have to get some sewing done for a quilting class that I am teaching tomorrow. I still have a lot more to do in my living room, like make pillows, hang my samplers and I am having a stepback cupboard made that will be delivered in April. DH put up the quilt rack he made for me as a Christmas gift and it looks great over my sofa. I painted it black and aged it the same as my bowl rack. I have my Antique Spider Web quilt hanging on it at the moment, but I still need to put a few more things on the top shelf......need to give that some thought.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

I have my new bowl rack up with my old wooden bowls. I had it made by the "Hollow Cupboard" They do awesome work there. I am waiting for my prairie curtains to arrive any day now. Just cleaning up and re-arranging. The walls are painted in a butterscotch color and the trim is Windsor green which is a black/green. My stepback cupboard will be here in April and there is a few things that I still have to move out. I just thought I would give you a little peak....I cleaned all of my windows this morning too. I am off to work for noon. I have recovered from our Anniversary sale.......what a fabric cutting marathon!

I am spending today putting my living room back together. Finally finished everything. DH made me a quilt rack for Christmas to hang over my sofa, so last weekend I painted and aged it. I love it. I have to get some new curtains up. DH also hung my new bowl rack up that was hand made by the "Hollow Cupboard" and I have my old bowls in it. I made a huge pot of home made chicken soup this morning and it is simmering away on the stove, just in time for lunch. I just got my samplers in the mail this morning that I ordered from one of my Facebook friends. She did an awesome job and will make a nice addition to my living room. It's a blustery, snowy day here in Southern Ontario.........brrrrrrrrrrr!
My new samplers........I love them!

If you are wondering what happened to the picture of my mystery quilt, I am doing some "reverse" stitching on it. I never noticed that I sewed one of the borders on wrong until I was looking at it on my Blog. I guess I was just sewing away and not paying attention. Shame on me ...............LOL
Hope you are all having a great night.

I have been running a little behind because of re-doing my living room, but I did manage to finish part II of my mystery quilt. I hope to finish the painting today on my living room except for the trim. It is ordered, but hasn't arrived yet. It is coming from Pennsylvania. Yesterday was spent sewing with friends and I finished part II. I thought I had better get it done as part III will be coming out soon :) 
I had to take a break from all of that painting on Sunday. 
On another note, I can't believe how many scammers are out there. I have a couple of things for sale on Craigslist and someone was trying to scam me. I can't believe there are so many of these losers out there.

I am making progress on my living room. The walls are all patched and prepped and the ceiling and walls will be painted tomorrow. I still don't have my paint for the trim, so there will be no pictures until it arrives and is put on. I was hoping it would be here by now, but unfortunately not. I have had some emails asking how it was coming along.
I am selling two china cabinets and a Folkart clock. Don't have room for them any more.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
