The Southern California Quilter's Run has now passed, but not without us enjoying several days of visiting about 30 shops! We also did a bit of collecting of course. It's so hard not to with all those beautiful fabrics out there. Beth was searching for new cherry prints for her kitchen. I have been wanting to do a "brown" quilt. The shops were happy to help us out! Sorry, I didn't have pictures of those to post, maybe next time....
This week, we are working on a few house projects. Chairs getting painted

Ta - Dah!!
or another one waiting for it's turn.
I do my dining room chairs like my quilts, give them something common, like the colors, but mismatch the styles. That makes me smile! (Poor Larry, he's a much more orderly kinda guy. He likes match-ey match-ey, but he puts up with my quirks!)
This week we are working on one of two last rooms to be painted in our home.
The folks who had it before us really liked CoLoR and every room had at least one bold color wall.
Let me tell you, we have kept the primer paint company in business. Uh, I think this wall is gonna need two coats before we paint....
Oh, yeah, hopefully this room that has been used for storage will become a sweet sewing studio.
