Last month I decided we needed a new house number sign. I first thought about doing a painted quilt design, but after not finding something I liked, I went with creating my own penny rug design with paint. This will be my "Fall" sign, and I will change it out for the seasons, but keep the same number sign hanging below. Now I just need to work on the winter sign.
I have found a ton of stuff lately at church sales and goodwill, but this is absolutely one of my favorites. I got it at one of the local church sales for $12, more than I would normally pay for something, but I couldn't pass it up. It is quite old and the wood worn from lots of years of little children playing with it, but someone recently redid the woven seat and stool, so it is quite sturdy.
And Mason just adores it!
My oldest daughter had a birthday to go to and she asked me to make a present for the teenage girl. I ended up making this cute owl purse. The fabric was all pieced to form the patchwork look and then I made the owl applique for the front. I liked the purse so much I almost didn't want to give it away :) (But I had already put her name on the ribbon tag on the side of the bag).
It's a gloomy day here, so I plan on doing some crafting and getting my kitchen clean.
Have a wonderful day,
