HERE'S AN IDEA!


My neighbour at the cottage found some old golf clubs and cut off the shaft and made hooks out of the head of the clubs. Very clever recycling idea don't you think?
She used old barn boards for the four hooks of which only one is complete, so I took this photo.
She is putting hooks around the cottage in different areas so that people may put towels, life jackets, ski ropes, etc off the ground. Very clever.
Thank you so much for comments regarding making my small quilt large. I am going to do what Lindsey, (five healthy hearts) suggested. I am going home after the weekend and hitting the shops around my area with my top to find just the right fabric which I will use for the sashing and then use it for the back as well I think. Honestly, I need to find fabric...I don't have stashes of different colours and when I need something I must shop around. I'm not a good shopper and my sweetie has just said to go buy fabric as I will go nuts without projects to work on.
Our little bathroom in the cottage is being painted today. The ladies from next door are going to do it. It is repayment for the three doors hung by my sweetie in their bunkie. Yes, a bathroom door is essential! I have taken before photos and will let you see our very simple loo when it's painted. So in advance I thank the ladies....
I often wonder how we have become such good "friends" when we have never met....I visit all the blogs on my list and have a few in my favorites that I look at, comment and see if we connect at all. Micki, that I visit all the time is in my favorites list but for the life of me, everytime I try to add her to the blog list, it reverts to 2006. So she stays as a fav.
Others, I see what they do and how often they blog. I think 2-3 times a week is good to keep a current blog...I noticed that Crazy Mom Quilts...aka Amandajean, has hit the wall with so much pressure to produce more and more ideas has resulted in Amandajean just being very tired and has decided to take a bit of a break...Goodness if I had 200 hits a day with comments, I'm sure I'd be overwhelmed too! I wondered how she did it all and raised a family too. Her creative juices need replenishing...
So, we will all be here no matter how often we write, how often we need a break and how often we run out of ideas, and how often we run out of fabric....oh that's not you guys.....it's me. I am going to go shopping since all I have left is fabric to make shopping bags.
