Oct.16…. A this and that catch up…

Sept was a busy month with picking jewelweed and making it into soap to treat our poison ivy rashes.

There was also three weddings that we attended. The first wedding was in Pa ,held at a wedding barn. It was beautiful!

We grilled the beef brisket for this wedding. We grilled the meat in Ga on our big grill then packed the wrapped brisket in three large coolers . We left late Friday evening ,arriving in time Sat morning to the reception for slicing the brisket and putting in it cookers to keep warm.

Then we went to Md to attend two wedding ,one on a Friday a niece on hubby’s side,on Saturday a nephew on my side.

We left Thursday evening to cross the Chesapeake bay bridge tunnel,for Hurricane Ian was kicking up some winds causing an alert there. We cross safely late that night with a sigh of relief.

We had a lovely weekend ,that quickly came to an end.

Hubby loaded up some door sections from his brothers business,that he have ordered for a job to do that week. Off we headed for home never once thinking that Hurricane Ian had a surprise ahead for us.

We arrived at the bridge around 3:00 pm Monday,to be told we couldn’t cross for there was an alert 2 , that meant no vehicle carrying cargo in the back of pickups allowed on the bridge. Winds were not to subside until morning. We then decided that waiting in the truck all night was not our cup of tea, we promptly find a hotel,relaxing the rest of the evening,getting a good nights sleep ,had a good breakfast in the morning . we were on our way back to cross the bridge by 7:30 am with no problems. Here a photo of the waves.

Old house on the hill

Remember this old house ? It is here in Tennessee, nestled in the hills,it is also in need of some care. It was left go for quite a few years,with windows shot out, trash left inside…(and outside), and a small fire damage where the wood stove was.

Floor damage

We are going to gut the house down to the frame and outside wall. The main structure of the house is good, we still are pulling up the old flooring to be sure the floor foundation is fine. Here’s some more of the mess we are making.

Trashy kitchen
Now we need to get some dumpsters to load all this mess into.

Some random photos from Ga and Tennessee.

Sunset in Ga.
Our little camper set up while we work on the old house. At one time it

looked like this…

Until the next update in my small world… Take Care!

Sept.25(26)…. Hand quilt along update…

Oh dear.. once again I’m late.🫣 I’m having a time trying to keep up with life, it seems everything is happening the last two weeks of September.

We just got back from PA , grilling brisket for a friend’s wedding of 250 folks, now this weekend ,hubby has a niece getting married on Friday and I have a nephew on Saturday both being in MD ,which is nice for we can take in both weddings as they will only be about 20 miles apart.it just means another 11 hr trip.

I did get some quilting done not as much as I would have liked but temps went back up to 100* again for a few days,guess it is giving us a last fling of summer. Quilting under a quilt in that kind of weather is sweaty business.😀

However ,I have only have eight more blocks to do along with the borders.

Four more just like these showing on the bottom side of hoop.
One of the corners finished.

I’m over the half way point,of that I’m so tickled about!👏🙂

Now off to try and catch up with the others updates.

July,24….Hand quilt along update

Today was a warm one with temps at 98* with a feel of 111* … as of right now there’s a thunderstorm going through that is slinging down rain,and a thunder clap that made me jump out of my skin and back in again.😁

I’m happy with what I got done this round. I’ve started in the middle doing it in quarters , two blocks finished along with sides working on the third block.

In this quarter there will be two blocks across and three down,making six blocks in this quarter while the other quarter will only have 4 blocks.

Close up of quilting design.

That’s it for me this time, so off to see visit the others!
