Thrift Store find and Makeover

But I have been Working, lots of cleaning out cupboards, sorting stuff, purging things!!! A little home dec sewing though!!!

Bought an old heavy coffee table, Hubby added legs for height!

Added a cover to fit!

Made a padded cushion for top.

It matches headboard we made a few months ago.(Took quilt off bed.) 

Another view! I also made a second one for the changeroom!

Today I start making six sets of Roman Blinds for the dining room and kitchen. Trying to a little quilting done in between the home dec stuff as our quilt show is coming up, but right now, I'm on a roll getting this stuff done!!

Animals Animals Animals!!!

My life seems to revolve around animals , especially this last week! We went to st Thomas to spend a few days with our friends John and Marylynn, and also to meet up with Jean and Brendon from the UK, who were staying with John and Marylynn! Both the girls are great quilters, so of course we had to do a little Fabric shopping!!! And Eating!!!

Jean, Ruth, Ina, Marylynn and Gerrie
On Saturday we were having a lovely lunch with the boys and my cell phone rang!!!! Big surprise...I only have it for emergencies...and guess what???? The cows were out at home!!! Yup, 6.5 hours away from home and the cows were two concessions away and the neighbours couldn't get them home!!! So we packed up and headed home!!! It took till the next morning but Terry got them all home safe and sound!!! Geez!

 Micky came with us, here he is, going for a walk with Jean, got to the end of the sidewalk and thought he better come back in case Mom went somewhere without him!!
Today he went into the Vet to have a broken molar removed , well they removed that and two Incissors, and cleaned the rest of them! They have to put them out for this, and when we picked him up at 4:00, he was still stoned. So funny, we put him on the grass for a quick potty and he fell over!!! Lots of antibiotics and pain meds so I'm sure he'll be fine!!!
I've been sewing up a storm, making things to sell in the boutique at our quilt show coming up in August, and putting sleeves on the three quilts that I'll be showing!! So lots of stuff getting done. But boy is it hot!!!! Hope you're all having a good summer. Keep on quilting!
