Rainy Weather

It's been dreary and rainy since we came home from the radio meet on  Saturday. Yesterday I worked 6 hours at the store; setting a new sale and stocking stickers and scrapbook paper. I came home and made Lemon Pepper Chicken; baked beans and fried okra. That was about all - nothing special.

Last night I pulled fabric from my stash to pull together my border on a Round Robin thats waiting for my addition so that it can be shipped home to it's owner. It is a Fall themed quilts so I pulled mostly oranges and browns all my yellows were just too bright for this quilt. I always pull fabrics and then "sleep on it"; the next day I go back in and switch things around a little and perhaps add a bit more. I'm thinking about using one of the greens as a narrow border and then do a piano keys border after that... still "thinking".

Today I ran a few errands and stopped at the library and checked out a few more books. Trying to borrow books more often from the library and avoid spending money when ever possible. One book is titled "Not Buying it - My year without shopping", by: Judith Levine. I'm looking forward to reading this one first. 

Scott has yet to post about the AWA Meet so I guess I'll show a few more radios as they truly are beautiful - NO PLASTIC! 


  1. They are little works of art - wish they still made them like this!

  2. Ah post after next will be my 1500th post - perhaps a little give-a-way is in order. Gotta decided if it will be for USA only as postage is so high for over seas shipping. And I have to come up with something fun!

  3. I love the colors you've picked for the quilt. I like to think about color combinations also. It's much easier than ripping out and starting over.

    Those radios are beautiful, especially the first picture.

  4. I love those old radios... and I am looking forward to seeing what you do with those orange and brown fabrics.


Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to comment on my post(s).
