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.
The one on the left met us when we pulled in he was friendly.
I really loved the tranquilty of this place, and loved all the animals.
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.
