Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

Quick 15 minute project

I needed a door stop for the front door. Was starting to be embarrassed by the bottle of Whiskey I'd been using.  Found a picture in Pinterest that didn't link back to anywhere but looked simple enough. Luckily, I have a lifetime supply of ground walnut shells to stuff him with for weight.

So much change in a short amount of time.

We've sold our house, moved into a rental in the mountains, survived a forest fire, got our first snow, two quilt tops finished, and 5 more weeks of work left.

Here is a photo tour of the last 8 weeks.
