Time to bring in the house plants before the frost comes. I found some bowls at wal-mart that work really well to keep the water from leaking out of the planters.
I drilled holes in some and added wire hangers from old plastic pots. Then I found the plastic pot hangers will snap right on the lip of the bowl.

Plant fits right in the bowl. Hope you have a great week. j

Catching up with you all.

 I have kept busy the last couple of weeks.

This quilt is for my bed and I am so happy with how it turned out.I have been saving the fabrics for some time and finally found 2 more blues that were just right.The outside blue border I have had that fabric since 1990.


Triangle frenzy is the red white and blue table topper. The X's and O's are from Christmas fabric I had on hand.The 2nd is from the scraps from the first one. I love scraps.

 I saw the pumpkin and the table topper on pinterest and decided to try to make them.I am happy with how they turned out
 Tomatoes are really good this year.The best I have ever grown.The ones on the plate that are green and blemished are from the plant I bought. The others are the ones I grew from seed.

 I played with dolls too.Painted some faces.

Justine worked on making a bear the last 2 weeks we got together. She did a great job. I enjoy teaching her sewing.
She got a blue and purple ribbon at the Franklin Co. fair and a blue ribbon at the state fair for her dolls and dresses.She also got an award for best stitching.She put the dolls together from a kit and made the dresses from pre printed doll dresses.

 It is very rewarding to help her learn to sew.
Hope you all have a great week j.
