|We have been working hard|
on the Mountain House
|The cabinets were in bad shape|
They were from 1994 and had
lots of scrapes and defacing.
|We knew that we were going to paint |
them instead of replacing them and I thought
we would replace the hardware.
But when I saw the price for just one drawer pull
(and we needed 40 of them)
I decided to try spray paint.
|This is how they looked before.|
We sprayed them black and then
|We used Primer and Paint all in one|
on the cabinets and painted all the pulls
and this is how it turned out.
We spent 30.00 on our paint for the cabinets and
bought black and silver spray paint.
|Fall decorating is in progress.|
|These are the last of the zinnias...|
I pulled up the brown stems today
time for the pumpkins and
leaf raking to begin!

|I'm doing lots of sewing|
these are jobs.
|I have several months to finish them|
but I like to get things done as fast as I can.
|These snowmen are called|
"Daddy Long Legs"
Their legs have elastic in them
and can bounce up and down.
|Cute and fun to make when you are|
not in a rush!
|I'm going to make some of these|
to sell in my booth, too!

|Woman to Woman|
|Saturday was our quarterly|
Woman to Woman meeting
at our church.
|This month the meeting focused on Missions.|
Our theme was
Missions: God loving the world through Me.
|We had nearly 50 woman in attendance.|
|The meeting included special singing|
a report from Aletta about her
missions trip to Guatemala.
|Before we ate we drew slips of paper from a bag|
and stood in place of woman all over the world
and remembered that everyone does not have
the food choices we do here.
|The decorations featured maps and travel.|
We used the words:
Some will pray
Some will give
Some will go
on our banners.
|I like to show the decoration so I can remember|
and so some of our friends that do work
in their woman's meetings will
be able to get ideas from us.
(I know I like to use your ideas, too!)
|I used the gift bags with balloons tied to them|
for table centerpieces.
The mat under the bag is a state map.
|I made these posters from regular printer paper|
on colored back paper.
I cut the burlap and used small pieces of the
maps to make the heart.
Our Woman to Woman meeting is special.
We love our sisters in Christ and
enjoy serving together.

|While the Ice Storm has been keeping us inside|
I have been working on Raggedys.
|I have 6 in progress.|
I usually make that many at a time
because it takes a long time to make one,
and I can make better time if I use the
assembly line process.

Put down a line.
Each team has the same amount of snowballs.
|Set the timer for 5 minutes|
|Propel those cotton balls with a plastic spoon.|
Try to keep as many as you can flying back to the other side.
|Keep them going over to the other side.|
The object of the game is to have the least at the end of the game.
|Throw those things Ethan!|
|Lots of fun!|
