Sun is shining....been very busy!

Good afternoon ladies - hope you are enjoying this Monday and had a great weekend.  Saturday was glorious here, with temps near 60.  We puttered around doing some things outside and taking down some outside decorations.  Mr. Whimzie and I were poking around in our barn...mostly because there are a couple of beds up in the loft, and Drew & Maria wanted one for their guest room....so after we gathered all the pieces to that, I explored a bit more.  The barn is full of old barn doors, barn wood and old windows, which we hope to make use of some day...but behind one of those old windows, against the side of the barn, I found this wonderful enamel pot - this is huge...big enough to have a large container of driveway sealer sitting in it.  I was tickled pink.....or should I say Blue!  I let out a whoop and I'm sure Mr. Whimzie thought I was nuts at first.

All weekend long I was sewing, stuffing and needle sculpting my latest projects...here's a peek at them....still have lots of finishing work to do, but I've been busy packing up some orders and putting Christmas decorations away today.  Hope to have them all finished and listed in my shop by the end of the week.

I've also started getting back into the habit of exercising, and I told Mr Whimzie we were going for a LONG walk yesterday afternoon.  So we bundled up, put Jack's doggie coat on him and headed out the door...for a stroll around the block.  Now, as many of you know, when you live in the country, a block isn't such a small thing...and when all was said and done, we had traversed 4.7 miles in a little over 1 1/2 hrs.  Luckily the wind wasn't too bad most of the way.  It felt good to get outside and a certain pooch was dog tired afterwards, planting himself in front of the wood stove and barely moving the rest of the night.

Shortly after we got back from our walk, this wonderful moon was coming up in the east....A lovely end to a relaxing weekend.

Have a nice week all - and don't forget to join in my newest SWAP...
