Saturday was a quilting day!
Ten of us got together and sewed for the whole day. Everything was perfect . . . good company, good laughs, good projects – the only thing that was missing was the AIR CONDITIONING! Of course Saturday turned out to be one of our hottest days of the year and there we were slaving over hot irons. I even saw a special flannel project being worked on . . . I think we’ll check the forecast before starting another one of those next time.
I shouldn’t have, but I did – started a new project. It’s going together really quick so it shouldn’t be a problem – right? I have until December 25th to finish it, so I should be OK. Famous last words!
Sunday was destruction day. New windows arrived on Thursday and we wanted to get them in as soon as we could. I wish I had taken a before picture before the siding had come off – this picture looks like the house should be condemned! Honest though it didn’t look like this before we started – it had two nice windows there without a door – we had that boarded over a few years ago when we re-did the kitchen.
By the end of the day we were able to get everything tidied up and the new windows in place. The upstairs windows will be tackled later this week and then the new siding will soon follow. There are also rumors of shutters, window boxes and new landscaping, but we’ll have to wait and see what year that all materializes. Right now I’m just happy with new, fancy windows.
This is a new little idea that I came up with this morning . . . weird, right?
That morning brain kicks out some interesting stuff! Stay tuned to see if it morphs into anything worthwhile . . .
‘til next time,
