There are changes in the air.

The almost unbearable heat has finally left.. I wake up in the mornings now with fog and dew on the windshields of my little truck. I turned the heat on a long time ago in the house for the Pitty... she was a pup-cycle. The Mommie can't have a frozen sweet wittle itty bitty puppy :) Although it's still getting warm in the afternoons. It's not so bad we can't stand it without the AC. We will see if that furnace up grade was worth the extra money when they put in the new AC a few weeks ago. I am in the process of getting an upgrade on the house also. I have ordered the siding for my home. The order should be in any day now. I am leaving my beloved yellow house with white trim behind for a nice country cream and white. I did notice the country cream appears to be a very very pale yellow. That was my main want in my color.. yellow. I am sadden to say every color of yellow was harsh. It was too yellow.. you could almost use it for road divider lines... that would have been to much for a two story house...  Yes I toned it down to make everyone happy and I am sure myself happy in the end :) It will be beautiful, LOL I hope :)  Even though it will not be yellow. I had a butter cream yellow in my head.. That is exactly the color... but alas no such animal. I will go out sometime this weekend and find a new front door. What is up with all the metal doors? I want a wood door to replace my wood door!  The one I have has been on the farm house since it was built in the late 30's. It's in pretty bad shape now. NOT energy efficient at all. Finally I am going to put seamless guttering on the house. The Oleo Ranch will once again be a show place ;) Or at least not looking like it is in dire-straights to have a paint job ;) Always nice for improvements.. I guess you can say .. I said goodbye to the dream of having a new studio building put up.. Oh well in the future :)

I have been in the mood to sew Halloween Mug Rugs.. I have two completed and am working on another. I have been searching the net for some other great Applique ideas.. but so far everything seems the same as last year... Darn wanted some new inspiration! Here is what I have made so far... sorry for the lousy photos I had to rush to take them. The rugs needed to go the new owner..... She needed them in a couple of weeks for a Halloween Party....

I am so excited about your home improvements. It's always so fun to do something pretty to your home. It sounds so lovely and you will enjoy the soft colors. Eye candy every time you get home. Of course you know I love you mug rugs and the shadow quilting. I haven't tried it yet hopefully this weekend. Give the Pitty some love from Aunt Cathy and go sew.

What cute little mug rugs! The redecorating sounds wonderful. I hope you find your wood door, and maybe paint it red for luck from the Chinese?
