SAMPLERS FRAMED


 
I HAD MY FRIEND BILL MAKE ME TWO PINE
FRAMES FOR THESE SAMPLERS. I PAINTED
AND AGED THE FRAMES THIS WEEK AND GOT
THE SAMPLERS IN THEM. THE SAMPLER ON
THE RIGHT IS A PATTERN BY THE PINKEEP.
A FUN LITTLE SAMPLER TO WHIP UP.
THE OTHER IS THE ONE I SHOWED A FEW
POSTS BACK INSPIRED BY AN ANTIQUE SAMPLER.
I MAY BE OFFERING THE MATILIDA FOR SALE
IN MY NEXT UPDATE SOMETIME IN JUNE.


WE'VE HAD SOME NICE DAYS SO I'VE BEEN
WORKING OUTSIDE WHEN I CAN. I PUT NEW
MULCH IN THE FLOWER BEDS ACROSS THE
FRONT OF THE HOUSE. BRIAN POWER WASHED
THE RAIN GUTTERS LAST NIGHT WHEN HE
GOT HOME FROM WORK. THEY ARE WHITE AND
NEEDED A GOOD CLEANING. THEY LOOK SO NICE
NOW! TODAY I HOPE TO GET OUT AND PAINT THE
WINDOWS ON THE SHED. STILL HAVE TO CLEAN
WINDOWS AND PLANT FLOWERS. SO MUCH TO DO!
RIGHT NOW IT'S TIME TO TAKE ZOE FOR A WALK.
ENJOY YOUR DAY!

AND PLEASE IF YOU COULD OFFER UP PRAYERS
FOR JILL. SHE IS A FRIEND HERE THAT WAS
JUST FLOWN OUT TO THE SAME HOSPITAL IN
WI WHERE BRIAN HAD HIS EMERGENCY
SURGERY A YEAR AGO. WE DON'T KNOW
ANY DETAILS BUT POSSIBLE ANEURYSM.
 SHE NEEDS MIGHTY PRAYERS.
THANK YOU!

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

OVER THE YEARS
BUT IS NEVER FORGOTTEN AND WITH US
ALWAYS.

WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO THIS WEEK

 
THIS IS OUR OLD SHED IN THE BACKYARD.
OUR HOUSE WAS BUILT IN 1973 SO I AM GUESSING
THE SHED WAS BUILT SOME TIME IN THE 70'S
AS WELL. WE MOVED INTO THE HOUSE IN 1985.
 IT'S BEEN IN NEED OF SOME TENDER LOVING
CARE AND I AM DETERMINED TO GIVE IT A FACE LIFT
THIS YEAR! THE WHITE TRIM WAS PEALING OFF SO
BADLY WHEN I SCRAPPED IT ALL DOWN YESTERDAY
THE TRIM AROUND THE ROOF WAS ALMOST ALL
DOWN TO BARE WOOD. TODAY I MANAGED TO GET
THE UPPER TRIM PAINTED. THE WINDOWS HOWEVER
ARE ANOTHER STORY! YOU KNOW HOW YOU THINK
SOMETHING IS GOING TO BE A QUICK LITTLE PAINT
JOB? WELL ALL THE WINDOW PUTTY IS COMING
OFF SO I HAVE TO PUTTY AROUND EACH PANE
OF GLASS IN THE TWO WINDOWS BEFORE I CAN
PAINT THE WINDOW FRAMES. I HOPE TO GET TO THE
PUTTY PART TOMORROW WHILE WE HAVE
ANOTHER NICE DAY IN THE 70'S. 
I LOVE THIS LITTLE SHED WITH THE TWO CUTE
WINDOWS.
 
 
YOU CAN SEE OUR GRASS IS JUST STARTING TO
GREEN UP AND WE DON'T HAVE LEAVES ON THE
TREES YET BUT IT IS A GOOD TIME TO GET DONE
WHAT I CAN OUTSIDE BEFORE IT GETS HOTTER.
 
 
THIS WINDOW HAS TWO PANES OF GLASS MISSING.
I SUSPECT OUR SON SHOT THEM OUT WITH HIS
BB GUN YEARS AGO. SINCE I HAVE TO REDO ALL
THE WINDOW PUTTY I GOT TWO NEW PANES
OF GLASS TODAY TO REPLACE THEM WHICH
MAKES ME HAPPY CUZ IT REALLY REALLY BUGS
ME THAT TWO ARE MISSING!!! LOL
 
 
IN THE FIRST TWO PICS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS
A WIDE DOORWAY AND NO DOOR. BRIAN TOOK
IT OFF YEARS AGO SO OUR SON AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD
KIDS DIDN'T GET STUCK IN THERE. WHERE THE DOOR
WENT I HAVEN'T A CLUE BUT I AM THINKING
A NEAT NEW SCREEN DOOR WOULD BE COOL.
I BOUGHT THE OLD HARDWARE ABOVE AND HOPE TO
USE IT ON A NEW DOOR. I'M CALLING MY FRIENDS
BILL AND MAREE ( ARE YOU READING THIS MAREE?)
TO SEE IF BILL CAN BUILD ME THE PERFECT NEW
DOOR. IT'S A WIDE OPENING SO WE SHALL SEE WHAT
BILL THINKS WILL WORK. IT MAY TAKE ME
A WHILE TO GET IT ALL DONE BUT I HAVE A VISION
FOR MY CUTE LITTLE SHED AND I HOPE TO GET THERE
THIS SUMMER FOR SURE.
 
 
BRIAN TOOK THE ABOVE PICTURE ON SUNDAY,
MAY 5TH, TO SHOW THERE IS STILL ICE
ON ONE OF OUR LOCAL LAKES. THAT IS ICE
IN THE DARKER AREA TOO. CLICK ON IT TO
ENLARGE IF YOU LIKE. IN FACT THIS LAKE IS
CALLED ICE LAKE. SO NAMED AS YEARS AGO
BEFORE REFRIGERATORS BLOCKS OF ICE
WERE TAKEN OFF THE LAKE FOR THE ICE BOX.
 
THAT'S ALL MY NEWS FOR NOW.
I HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR NECK
OF THE WOODS.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

SOME FUN!

 
BRIAN, ZOE AND I WENT ON A LITTLE
OVERNIGHT TRIP TO APPLETON, WI
ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY.
WHILE IN THE AREA I WAS ABLE TO GO
TO ONE OF MY FAVORITE QUILT SHOPS...
PRIMITIVE GATHERINGS.
 
I BOUGHT A FEW COTTON FABRICS
THAT CAUGHT MY EYE AND
ONE PIECE OF DYED BROWN WOOL THAT REMINDS
ME OF COCOA. YOU CAN SEE IT ON
THE BOTTOM OF THE STACK.
I GOT FIVE PRINTS AND A WONDERFUL
BROWN TICKING HOMESPUN.
A PUMPKIN, A GREEN, TWO REDS, A BROWN, AND
THE BROWN HOMESPUN.
I HAVE PLANS FOR IT ALL BUT NOT
IN THE SAME PROJECT. I ALSO GOT
A FEW BALLS OF VALDANI PEARL COTTON
FOR PN AND A COUPLE OF OTHER LITTLE
THINGS. ALL IN ALL A MOST ENJOYABLE
TIME BROWSING IN THIS WONDERFUL SHOP.
 
WE LEFT IN SLEET ON FRIDAY BUT IT WAS
JUST RAINING IN APPLETON. YESTERDAY
WAS BEAUTIFUL THERE THO AND TODAY
AT HOME IS A LOVELY DAY OF SUNSHINE
AND MAYBE IT WILL MAKE 70.
 
HOPING YOU ARE HAVING A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
