you can't have just one.
Life's too short to have only one hobby. Why not try them all?

What a Difference a Day Makes
Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything. It's been an insanely busy summer and I have to admit I've been too tired to do anything creative lately. Hopefully I'll get inspired soon and can blog about what newest thing I'm making. I did make a skirt for my daughter to wear to a wedding next weekend and boy did it make me miss my studio. I haven't had to cut out a pattern on the dining room table for many, many years and I'd forgotten how hard it is on the back. I'm getting antsy to have my studio back!
Thankfully, DH has been making very steady progress. Yesterday morning, it looked like this...
by late afternoon, I had a real subfloor that I could walk on...
Today I got walls...
All I can say is whoo hoo!!!!!!!
I was busy today too. Since we're having a big party here in a week, I figured it was about time I tackled painting the "soon to be" guest bedroom. When we first moved in 2 years ago, we painted it bright, bright lime green for one of my sons and, although I really love the color, it is a little too intense for a guest room so I'm having to repaint. I've painted one coat in the closet so far and am headed up to start priming the walls now that the kids have taken everything out of the room.
I just hope I can find my painting mojo again--I usually like painting but I'm pretty much hating the whole process today. The best I can say is I'll be glad when it's done. :)
