Getting Ready for Fall and Demo, Down Comes to Wall

Hello All!

Is everyone ready for fall? I know I am however fall is not really fall in California, at least not to much at my house. It will be fall here in November. 
But I made a mini quilted wall hanging for fall. 

I got the pattern for this from the Fall Quilts and More 2014 Magazine.

Come on in!

I had a bit of a diversion from the fall leaf table runner to make this little fall quilt hanging. I normally can quilt faster than I am but life is a bit crazy with the renovations and the move. I just cannot get my groove back right now. One thing is pain from carpel tunnel and sciatica and sometimes a bit of depression. It has been a huge transition for me and my carpel tunnel is just barely healing, my sciatica needs to be tended to, I don't see it get any better. I don't look forward to whatever will have to be done about that.

I have all four leafs done for the table runner just need to sew the pieces together squares together.

The wall came down! if you have been reading my blog I am happy to report that we had the wall removed about one week ago. Now we are waiting to put in the new wood floors, they are going to be putting down bamboo antique wood floors. Today the wood is being delivered and then it has to acclimate to the temperature inside our home. Then the next week on Wednesday they will start laying the flooring.
Believe me I wish we had this done before we moved in. We had laminate wood laid and we hate it so much. Of course it was thrashed because no one even laid anything over it during the demo of this house. But even still I hate it.

Below I posted the photos of the demo

last photo below with the fireplace wall gone!!! done and done!

I will be so happy after next week is over and the new floors are in and we are done with all projects for the inside of the house.

Today I had to take my sweetie Edee to have a tooth removed and teeth cleaning at the vet. That bill is predicted to be $545.00. Yesterday I had to take both Edee and Effie for shots and heart worm test, meds and pain meds for Edee because of her chipped tooth with exposed nerve and that bill was $408.00.
Dosen't it always seem like it's something? I have tried to keep the credit card paid off and then there is always another thing to put on it. I would love to live a cash only lifestyle. But I am the type of person who does not like taking money from our savings to pay for every expense that comes up. And right now we have a lot of them.
Oh I just got a call from the vet and Edee is fine and will get to come home after 3 today. Wew.. I was feeling so stressed about her being at the vet instead of with me.
She has to have anesthesia, I just worry when that is done to pets or people.

Well I am off to relax for a bit just feeling a bit blue today. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!



  1. What a project! Can't wait to see the finished product. I know exactly what you mean with expenses. We are in the same boat. Attorney adoption fees, dog vet fees, birthday parties .. Seems like we get invited every weekend
    Have a great evening

  2. Hello sweet Kat! I feel like I haven't visited you in....forever! How have you been, dear friend? Looks like you are keeping busy :)

    I love the wall hanging you made - it's simply lovely!

    Thinking of you and sending hugs your way!

  3. I love your wall hanging it is so pretty and I really love the leaf pattern it will be neat to have a full runner of them. Hope all goes well with the flooring, bet that will feel good to have all done. Our furbabies are getting up there in age and are costing us a pretty penny every time we go to the vet too.
    I understand the frustration your having, I feel that way about my feet, I have been havng one problem after another, and my emotions are all over the place since I started losing weight and they have had to adjust my thyroid levels, I don't feel I have had these big of bouts with depression since I was a teenager and I am now 50.... maybe it is menopause too, who knows, sure hope you can feel better soon


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
