 Just a few of my new Halloween decorations. I bought these cool posters at Dollar General last year for a buck each but I really didn't want to hang posters in my kitchen. So I found frames that I could reimagine into wooden signs. I really planned on painting them black and mounting the posters but I laid them on the frames over the original artwork and liked it.
The top painting was a ship on the water with the sunset in the background. The second was an old Home Interiors plaque. I hung them in my kitchen and hallway, nobody has made any comments yet so I'm thinking either they never noticed the change or they just know I'm weird and hang pictures of zombies in my house just because. (or that second pic is a selfie)

I'm tossing it

 I'm tossing this quilt. Gone, get, goodbye.  My son Brad trashed his Christmas quilt.
 I was being a good Mom and doing his laundry, well I was washing what was in the laundry room anyway.....after a wash and dry this is what I found.
 I love my son and I'm not going to kill him or anything but............
 Well this is why when I say I give a quilt away it's gone. Not mine and no matter how it's used it's not a reflection of the maker. So whether it's a dog bed, floormat, paint tarp or a furniture pad it's gone.
Not going to say a thing to him...........but.............nope............not............a..............thing..............

Last project

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. I love spooky and cute so when this fabric was being ordered at the Quilter's Candy Shoppe I said I would put together a table runner and throw size quilt from the line. Well with being so busy at work, then no patterns at the Shoppe, etc....I finally got a sample made this weekend. I'm sure there will be kits made sometime in the next week or so if your interested........I don't think I will be making any more samples for the Shoppe so now it's time to make things for myself!

On another note, I am no longer at Fed Ex. No more long hours and slick roads. Oh I did say I would work Saturdays at peak but I'm thinking by then I will welcome the extra cash for Christmas. I really did like the job but it was just to far away from home, no one should be on the road for 14-16 hours. I am getting to old to work 60-70 hours a week.    I got a job with Central Nebraska Community Services and the Early Head Start program. I am now a Family Consultant and working with family's that have birth to three year olds. It's 40 hours a week, 10 hour days with Friday off if that's what I choose. Benefits and only a half an hour drive! I've made it thru my first week and so far so good, next week I will start meeting family's and doing lots of paper work!

I really enjoyed my three day weekend and got a few things done so now that I found my camera again maybe I will share them on here. Ok I'm off to work on tomato's and peppers!
