Talk Till Dawn – 34

Creative Cain Cabin's Talk Till Dawn Series

I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.

My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.

Thanks for joining with me in reading of the things I’ve been doing for the month of October. I know I say this time and time again, but it’s true I’ve had another non eventful month. Our state is one that’s still on lockdown, I seldom go out and it’s becoming quite depressing. It seems the only place I go is to the grocery store once in a while and other than that I sit at home.

There’s plenty of things I could be doing; like cleaning out closets, but there’s no place to shop for organizing bins so I can clean out but may not be able to make it look neat and tidy without some storage containers. I can only order so many things off line. Some things I just need to see in person to make a decision. I also could be giving our wood floor a good scrubbing and apply a top coat sealer, but once again I’m just not in the mood.

My life is so boring I’ve taken to watching YouTube videos on cobbler work, and not the kind you can eat, actually shoe cobbler techniques. I’m not sure why it fascinates me but it does and I also find it to be relaxing. Anyone who knows me knows I have a shoe addiction. I just love shoes….maybe that’s why I love the YouTube channel so much.

Before the snow flies I want to share with you the last of our fishing trip photos. Hubby and I did a chain of lakes on the Michigan boarder, there were several narrow canals to go through with some cute, colorful, and affordable homes I snapped pictures of. So all of todays photos are from that trip. We are done fishing for the season, insert sad face here. The boat goes in to be winterized and wrapped this week and then we’ll put it in storage until next spring. I’m sad to see the season end but it’s just to cold on the water anymore to make it enjoyable.

The ducks, Marigold and Daisy, are still convalescing in my coop. They’re filling out nicely and have finally become brave enough to venture out into their new surrounds. They go for daily swims in the area I’ve provided, pick bugs from the garden, and when hubby gets home they flock to the underside of his truck where it’s warm and sit close to the motor until it cools down.

I have’t talked about Grama Red lately so here’s the latest on her. Recently she broke her foot and had a soft cast on it until it healed and now she has bursitis in her elbow. At 101 she’s bound to have a few things wrong, but this elbow is really giving her fits and is quite painful. I don’t take her out much because of the virus so we order what she needs online. I go and visit her, bring her doughnuts, and goodies and she’s happy with that but she sure misses going for our weekly gallivanting.

We did go to the cider mill and have a doughnut and cider, took her to get her hair cut, and made a few trips through her favorite restaurant, McDonalds but other than that the only place she’s been is to doctor visits. I worry this winter will be hard on her and at her age everyday I still have her is a blessing.

Anyone out there sewers? I have a question? I purchased two, white twin sized chenille bead spreads years ago at a garage sale. They were even still in the original package. I’ve never used them because we don’t have any twin beds and when we did I had boys and boys and white don’t get along. So here’s what I’d like to do…..stitch them both together and make one king sized bedspread. Do you think that would look funny with a seam down the middle? The chenille has a pattern so I’d match that up the best I can but it will still have a seam. All you expert sewers give me your advice, please!

Until next time thank you for taking the time to “Talk Till Dawn” with me! God Bless!

  1. I can’t see comments so this may be repetitive, but you need to cut one spread in half and sew one half on one side of whole spread and the other half on the other side.

  2. I agree with Sandy. Divide & conquer is a good resolution. Also, you are creative that you could think of some special stitching or deco to put on the seams. In the quilting work that is known as a design oppurtunity when one wants to cover a boo-boo or call attention away from a flaw.

  3. Beautiful lake pictures….spitting snow in Jackson….Have a great week and good luck with your bed spreads.

    I agree with Sandy. The seams will hang over the side of the bed and not be noticeable.

  5. I agree with the above comments!
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures! Makes me want summer all over again!
    Take care and hope we’ll all be able to get out soon!

  6. Yes, I agree with everyone else about the spreads. How cool to have a king size chenille spread! I love the vintage look of them. I remember having a pink one on my bed as a young girl (a long time ago!). Have you and your hubby ever thought of looking for a home on the water? I know how much you enjoy fishing. Seems like the perfect fit for you! Also, I had bursitis in my shoulder just a couple of weeks ago. It’s very painful! CBD oil worked wonders for me!

  7. I’m a quilter and agree with the above comments. Two other ideas, you can stitch a tube and then cut down the middle of one of the twins. Also have you measured to be sure you have enough drop to make it look ok? If not you could add a border.. something heavier than cotton so you wouldn’t have to quilt it.. i.e. corduroy, upholstery fabric, decorator fabric.. Cool project, have fun.
