Welcome Back

Good morning,

Today is a lovely sunny morning in Northern Ontario but the forcast is snow for the end of the week.

I have been blog absent for a while now and am finally organized, I hope.  I am trying to make my blogs meaningful and informative and have come up with some new ideas for my blogs.  Since I have varied interests in the sewing, quilting, beading, home design and travel areas I have decided to try and include a little of each in my blog posts.  I hope you will like it and if not "please" let me know.

So starting off a new day I will be renovating a leather coat that I found while cleaning out my closet and getting the winter clothes ready.  I am not in my 20's or a size 2  so my clothing renovations (I hope) will resonate with the "mature" average women out there.  I bought this coat in the 90's.  I didn't wear it too much because it is a winter white colour and it didn't really go with small children. It does not need much in the way of renovations.  My plan is to remove the large shoulder pads and replace the buttons but you never know what will happen when I get started.  If you have any ideas please leave me a comment.

Check back in on Friday for the "weekly round-up" to see the my finished coat.

Also  for my design wall Monday I have started my second block from the Celebrate Christmas quilt along.  I am doing it in button hole stitch rather than needle turn applique.

Let me know what you think of my new format??

Have a great day!!
