I haven’t done a thing to my hexagon quilt. Well, I take that back, I basted one new hexagon and then realized my scissors were with my embroidery and was too lazy to find them so they lay neglected downstairs. One of these days!
I have done a little bit of work on my spiderweb quilt, but I really do mean a little. I made two more triangle sections for it and haven’t even sewn them together. I don’t know where my sewing stamina went. I keep hearing about this famed fabric store in Walkertown, about 20 minutes north of here and might go up there this week. It supposed to be one of those overwhelmed -by -the-fabric-stacked-to-the-ceiling, you-could-spend-hours-here kind of stores. I need to get the rest of the fabric for this darned commission!
I started to finish sanding down a chair I found by the side of the road almost a year ago. (About time, I know.) I still haven’t decided what to paint it, though I bought some dark teal for my desk which means I should get to stripping and sanding that. I have another chair to be painted, too but and undecided on color. I’m also considering painting the plastic Adirondack-type chairs we have on the patio and making cushions for them with some of Amy Butler’s laminated cotton (and maybe even some place mats and bench cushions for the picnic table).
When we were first looking at our house it was our neighborhood’s bulk item pick up day and I saw this great wooden crate in front of our neighbor’s house. I realized the crate was pretty flimsy but I looked inside to find it full of Mason jars.I bought some wire, sand, and candles and voila! I wasn’t able to get a picture of them lit up at night (I really need a tripod and I really want one like this) but they look lovely. Now I’m ready for another dinner party!
Hmm, what else… I think I’m going to do a small craft show in December that my friend Laura Lashley sets up every year at Krankies Coffee. It’s nothing fancy and I’m not totally sure what I’m going to make but I’m looking forward to it. I think I’ll grab some ideas from my list of 30 projects (in 30 days, something I’m still trying to decide on the timing for). I’ll keep you posted on what might be for sale!
That’s all I can think of right now. Just in general life, work is going alright though I’m still not thrilled to be there. Jackson and Adelaide are doing well. I am trying to have them out of their crates as much as possible when I’m home but they can get so hyper. Poor Jackson wants someone his own size to play with and loves when we go to the dog park and do that. It’s only a matter of time before Addie gets his size; she’s gaining 2-3 pounds a week and is getting noticeably bigger. I love our puppies so much! And of course, Amos is as cute as ever.
