What I’m Working On…


I was hoping…but it didn’t happen.

Earlier last week I got some time to sit down at my sewing machine that is tucked away in the laundry room.  I had made a goal to try to sew a bit every day…but I didn’t make it that far.  My real hope was that I would make one Pineapple Crazy block every day….I wrote the post on the 25th.  That means I would need to have five made by today’s post.

If you count…there’s only four blocks.

I do have a few in progress….6 of them I think but just barely started.

I am hoping to show a few more to you next week…Hopefully seven.  Do you think I can do it?

It’s hard for me…I really should be in the quilting room and cleaning and organizing…but honestly, I could just use a bread for all of that.

Go on over to Patchwork Times and see what everyone else is working on.

The White Cupboard


It’s funny…sometimes things around here get a name and the name sticks.  I think forever and for always, this cupboard will be know as the white cupboard.  It started out looking like this….

Then we stripped it and had our cabinet builders stain and varnish it…so we had this and that’s where I last left you.

We were waiting on knobs and hinges as we couldn’t find them locally.  We ended up finding decent hinges.  We couldn’t find the twist door openers we wanted or more drawer pulls.

We needed to use it though so we went with what we had….


We love the cabinet but we don’t love the the drawer pulls and don’t love that we don’t have the original twist latches but for now it’s working and functioning and we’re okay with that.  Now we have something to hunt for when we go antiquing.

I really love the functionality of the cabinet too.  It really is my pantry.  I have so much room to store extra food.

It fits perfectly into the spot it’s in too.  It’s just what I wanted it to be…and Hubby is so happy.  It’s another thing checked off his list.

It is kind of funny…even though the cupboard isn’t white anymore we are still calling it the white cupboard…and everyone know which cupboard I’m talking about.
