A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

Slowly I have been making a wall quilt, for over our couch in family room, depicting each Season or Holiday.
This is a SnowBall Quilt Block.  You fussy cut a big flower for center.  To make the blocks pop you encase all in black cotton fabric. 
The colors in this go with the Folk Art colored family room.


My freebie from Susan Mudge of The Country Store , arrived today.  A couple of fun prim guys!  They are so cute. Will fit in with my Autumn Harvest decorating in the fall. She has made them from muslin and boy do they smell good. 
Since I took a pix of them on my enclosed back porch , decided to show a couple other photos that side of porch.
This is the porch my Tuxedo kitty spends time in. She has a little bed and can look out the full length glass door onto our patio and back yard.
The washed painted blue cabinet is an early 1800's Canadian StepBack. This is the bottom portion. We bought this in Ohio. I love it.  The bunch of hanging Hydranges I purchased in Middlebury last fall at our Garden Club's District Meeting. They are hanging from an  antique drying rack.  As you can see I enjoy gardening and old things.
