My blue tree is now a joyful and funny adventure and I can laugh about it all--me and the bank now agree on my balance and all overdrafts were lifted---YES!!!!

               it is Julia of Julia's place---congratulations, Julia---she just has to pick one out and then it will be in the mail to her!!!

Don't cry if you did not win this time--there will be other "times"  so best to read me every day--even you are busy--take a moment and enjoy some blog reading!!!!

ALSO--I will be posting nearly everyday on the Di's workbasket site--there I am posting about different holiday ideas--etc.  Just click on the side bar and it takes you to that site---ENJOY!!!!

Now for today's "adventures"--
FIRST this was my entertainment--

Yep--another dirty--- dusty--- job---

It did take awhile--they started at 8:30 am and by 2:00 pm it was done--

Now for the clean up--that will take them a good day--the pile is really large!!!

This is what I worked on this morning while I was watching them work--

This is ready for batting and backing and some hand quilting--I love the color!!!

Then Little sister and I went over town and had a slice of pizza for lunch--then the bank--and I seen this parked across the street--

does anyone know the make, model, year of this baby????  It is "my color" I know that!!!
At the Quilt shop--also across the street from the bank--I got this--

Got all kinds of neat ideas and patterns I want to do in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then--of course on the way to the drug store--we had to go right past my favorite Country shop--and for some reason my feet just seem to turn in and my hands for some reason always seem to open the door--but look what I found today----

Isn't she the "sweetest"?????  And she is made from a Christmas hankie--so of course I had to give her a new home with my hankies!!!!

Now for some more Hoosier decorating--

this is upper right hand side--the gingerbread on the bottom shelf, on the right is one I made and painted and is my own design--this is from years ago again and was even a class I taught then--

this is the center section on top and this one has a glass door--can you see that I have a candle light inside the old metal  round grater--cute--bottom shelf on the right is a gingerbread I made also long time ago--the little pillow in the bowl is from a craft show and the other gingerbread angel came from a country shop 5 or 6 years ago!!

this shelf is on the left side and this is a gingerbread doll that i designed when i had my shop 10 years ago!!

Would you believe that I don;t remember where I got this wood gingerbread from--???

this one my friend Sally gave me a couple years ago--he;s a big boy!!!!

AND HERE IT IS ALL TOGETHER---I have really enjoyed decorating this Hoosier this year--but I have really enjoyed sharing the photos with all of you--thanks!!!

Have a break today and enjoy an extra cup of tea/coffee/hot cocoa!!!!
Hugs, Di

    Have to add: my favorite graphic today is the sewing machine with the sweet heart on it. Wouldn't that be too cute as an applique on a small wall quilt?

    I think that car is an old Studebaker, but I could be wrong.
