Mid-week mojo

I started my week by straightening up my kitchen. It wasn't dirty, just very cluttered. This particular side of the counter collects everything from canned goods to mail.

.

I found this container in the trash bin at church. It's gorgeous and don't those apples look pretty and inviting.


With the cooler weather, it's a great time for some baking - apple muffins, of course.

On the crafting, sewing, stitching front,


Block 2 of the sheep is done.


And from my goal list - all four of the Christmas stocking wall hangings that are gifts are completely finished. Appliqued, quilted, embellished, bound and with hangers.
Absolutely thrilled with how they turned out. I have one more to do - it will be for me.
This was a free pattern - here's your link.

My goal for Thursday was to stay home and catch up all the loose ends. I ran errands on Wednesday. I don't go to Mom this week and BF is in New Jersey with her husband celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary !!!

I started with these towels.


All four are the same applique. These are leftover from the scarecrow wall hangings. I found the towels at a discount store in my neighborhood for less than $5.00. A simple zig-zag and done.



Next up, one more stocking. This one is for me. And since I have an applique BOM that I collected from my local quilt shop this year, I need the practice. I pretty much have decided that I'm going to do all on the machine. It will be a new experience for me.

In between, I did things like thorough clean the stove, wash dishes, put some odds and ends away and talk on the phone.

We went outside.

 

The trees are full of these black birds. They are really loud and when they fly they are a big shadow going across the ground.
Rocky was very curious about the shadows and the rooting through the leaves they were doing.



Came back in to find squishy mail.
Thank you, Susan. As always, the 9s are beautiful. I love the extras.

Off to work on that goal list.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with countless blessings.

You're welcome! It was so late, I figured it needed a little sugar. =) Now we have matching socks, too. LOL I love the way your stockings turned out. I really need to make that, and I have no motivation to do a single thing. LOVE the dish towels. Just goes to show how cute you can be without spending a lot of money! I hope you are having a lovely week of sunshine, even if it's cooler now. We're in Really Fall. LOL
