Recharged and ready to Create

Took some time off, had a birthday in March, visited Jamaica, but did plenty of reading.  I found I needed to get my focus back, had too many things going at once, and now I am recharged, rested and ready to get going again.

I received some wonderful treasures, knitting needles, dishes, sewing box and a charming sewing table from a lovely lady by the name of Shirley, she was the sweetest lady and I will miss her.

I discovered this lovely pink and white gingham window panel wrapped around some of the dishes, after further inspection I realized it was the perfect size to make a pair of pillow cases.  All I did was wash and iron the panel then cut it in half sew up 2 sides and I was done.

Lots of research online later, I found the perfect downspout rain water collection system by Oatey to channel the water to my barrel. I bought 2 Oatey system so I may make that DIY rain barrel yet :-).



I started with building the stand for the barrel on a Sunday. I used concrete 12in x 12in stepping stone pavers and 4in x 8in pavers, I created a pattern and stack them, I did use pieces of slate to level the barrel. I kept the stand low so I did not need to make it permanent, I like that I can move it anytime I wish.


I dd not have enough pavers on …
