Friday at 3:10, only 40 more minutes till the weekend, Halleluiah I’m so looking forward to the weekend.  This weekend I am working on setting up one of the spare rooms, ok let us call it Willy’s old room.  My son decided a few months  ago to move to the basement, I left his room alone for a while to make sure he didn’t want to come back, but it seems that he likes the basement, so that means I have another spare room.  The other spare room is known as the baby room, as it has a crib in it, and a lot of baby dolls.  So Willy’s old room has been painted my favorite color, maple leaf.  I bought a carpet for the floor as the floor was a mess.  I moved one of the benches I have to in between the cupboards, where my bigger dolls will sit.  I found some old curtains we had packed away in a case.  The house I now own was built by my father over 60 years ago and when growing up in it there was my grandmother, grandfather, mom dad and 3 brothers.  My grandparents and father never threw anything away, I think that is whee my love of quilting began,  my grandmother would never throw old clothes away, she would recycle them into quilts or aprons.   The curtains I found were handmade by my grandmother, and along with them I found a camera from the 1940’s.   I’ll be moving a couch that my dad made years ago into the room, I want most of what is in this room to be hand made.  I want to make a list of things that I want to finish up, it seems I start a lot of things but am slow at finishing them.  I want to make some pillows out of some stuffed bears I have, the bears take up too much room and I need the pillows for the couch.  I'm going to hang a quilt on one wall, and of course will have one on the couch.  I also want to get a trunk for a coffee table.

Summer is over the trailer is closed for the winter.  Hubby starts coaching hockey and I spend my weekends at home relaxing.  I love the trailer during the summer I look forward all week to getting away to the country, but as soon as September rolls around I love the idea of staying home on the weekends tually getting things around the house done.   I did get to go to the place where the wood was sold, it is such a lovely place with horses and goats.
This is the seen as you drive into the yard.  I wanted to pick up some pieces of wood cut into cookie size to spread among the rocks in the rireplace area.  I also wanted to make some tables just from logs split in half.
I wish they had horses in quilt stores, I would have no problem dragging hubby alongn if they did.

The one on the left met us when we pulled in he was friendly.
this little guy seemed thirsty, he shared the water with the dog.

I am amazed at people that can create or build things, the gentelman that owned this built the saloon and the benches, and he had built dog houses and lots of other thins you had to look for as in a sandbox, a shed.

I really loved the tranquilty of this place, and loved all the animals.

Here is the trailer where I spend my summer weekends, if you look on the chair right in front of the trailer you will see a quillt I was working on.  Yes there is a trailer there it just has an add on in the front of 12 feet by 24 feet.  During the summer I spend most days outside sewing or knitting or crocheting or planning things we need our hubby's to do. I choose a series that I haven't seen and watch it on my laptop at nights.  In the past I watched Boston Legal one summer Lost another one, and this summer I watched The Gilmore Girls. 
At night hubby sits at the fire and talks to the neighbours, and I love the look of the spot as it makes me feel so calm and relaxed.  You can see the wood cookies in among the rocks and the log tables if you look closelely.
One of the women in the campground was pregnant this summer and hubby asked me if I would make her a blanket, so I picked this panel out and quilted it over the summer and gave it to her at the beginning of the summer.  It worked out perfectly as she decided the theme to the baby's room was going to be under water, and so I'm sure she would need a Noha's ark.
