A change in plans........

I have been doing a lot of knitting. It is hard to write a blog and knit.

I would like to finish this jacket before we go to Maine although there were a few days in Florida that I could have used it!

Jack saw some quilted table runners at a local quilt shop and suggested that it might be a nice gesture to make one for his house. I suggested that it might be a nice gesture if he ran the vacuum for me - and a deal was struck! I shall finish it tomorrow and then off to the long arm quilter.

I had forgotten how much I loved batiks and sewing.

Some new linens and ranunculus at Trader Joe's prompted a tablescape. 

There is something wonderful about white ironstone and white flowers.

We had planned a day out in downtown Sarasota but thought better of it and changed our plans. From time to time I have seen doll houses made out of metal like the one I had as a child. They have not been in good condition. But yesterday tucked away in a corner was the exact doll house of my childhood in excellent condition. It followed me home. The doll houses were made by Louis Marx in the 40's and 50's and the furniture was made by Renwal.

Notice the sewing machine in the window!

I shall have to find some outdoor furniture. 

And the living room is a little bare. But the fun will be finding furniture in miniature. 
It was a good day!

Now I shall go back to my knitting and listen to a book.

I hope you have a wonderful day and good week. Thank you for stopping by.
