menu plan monday ~ september 11, 2017

Today I have a lot of things on my to-do list, but I have two things I really want to get done. One is the custom order Putz church I am working on. Woody the Gnome thinks the steeple is great. It reminds him of his hat.

The other project is to begin embellishing the twenty new Putz houses I have that need to be finished. Most were made earlier this year and they need to be done so I can get them into my ChristmasNotebook Etsy shop. I probably won’t get to them till later this week, but I’m keeping them on my list. I want to get to them as soon as I can.

Waiting for embellishments.

When I need a little humor to brighten my day, Clark is a constant source of amusement. My daughter-in-law dubbed him the monorail cat because he loves to nap on the banister railing in the upstairs hall with all four feet dangling down. How strange and hilarious is that??

Last Saturday a group of women from my church came over to help put together a quilt top. We have a project underway to make quilts for the twelve missionaries our church supports as a reminder to them that we think of them and pray for them as they work around the world to show Christ’s love to others. Middle Daughter was the “boss” this Saturday. She kept us all on track as we worked, some cutting, some sewing, some ironing. Every helping hand was appreciated! Thank you, friends! This is the quilt top we finished.

Another quilt top done.

This Sunday’s bouquet was a heap of Jerusalem Artichokes from the back yard. Such a happy flower!
