Good Morning

Greg has put some MDF on

my ironing board sleeve it

what i always used for my quilting

the small projects but it not big enough

well he came in the room the other

day when i was sewing & looked at

the ironing board the rubbers to make

it sit even had moved & he mention about

being uneven so said the rubbers had moved

anyway talking & he said about getting so it fixed

what am i here for had to laugh so that how he

comes to do me a new bigger ironing board

i had asked him but the off cut at the size it

was he said it be too heavy so he cut down &

fixed it to the table top ironing board so it now

bigger i knew i kept him for something lol

He been doing the tidying up & putting

things back he also wants to do a few other

jobs around the place he will be needing

the holiday by the time he finishes all

the things he wants to do i think as we have

had such a lot of rain it has stopped him doing

things so now while we have some dry weather

he trying to get it all done plus having the paths

done he wants to do a few bits to finish off things

also clean where they worked made things look dirty

I hope i don't bore you with my rambling each day

Blessed Day take care

Hugs Janice

Hi Ladies!..I think my naps in the afternoon mess with my sleep patterns...Nancy, you asked about the Castle...if you go to my pictures on Quiltwithus, you will see a picture of the Castle ( my DD's house)., it looks like a castle complete with a tower.i spend my weekends there sewing and R&R away from my DH, who has Alzheimer's,..it has been a life saver!!..his doctors told me it is a must for my health....because you are constantly watching and waiting on him, because of the dementia..

Good morning everyone. Hope you got to sleep Kathy. I hate when that happens. And what is the Castle?      Janice, here in PA leaves haven't changed much yet. We took a ride yesterday (and went out for lunch) and trees are mostly green. But in a few weeks things will be beautiful with all the fall colors! I really like the new block--Road to California. Well, hope everyone is having a good day. Smiles!

Hi Kathy

I hope you can get some sleep, we don't change decore for the seasons as such here it still very cool with rain it was raining but i think it may have stopped.

The leaves are falling but they still green as we had so much rain

How do you decorate you place for the seasons i want to do some items that i can use/put up for the seasons but don't seem to get time to do things like that for me lol

Well you have a good day

Hugs Janice
