Hello again, everyone! thought it was about time to post again and had every intention of posting yesterday but things fell apart - literally! I had been trying my unskilled hand at a bit of carpentry and well may you laugh! The little prim bench I hoped to make was a comical disaster and did just fall apart. But I am not the type to give up without a fight and had another go today and 'tah dah!' here is my still 'not-so-perfect' little bench.
Now I can't wait to paint it! Hope I get a chance tonight and I'll post the finished article asap.
I have a spot in my kitchen picked out and waiting for it and plenty of ideas as to how it I will arrange things with it - does anyone else do that - just sit and dream up MORE prim things to do around the house? Think I know the answer to that!
Speaking of which, the weather over here has been so good that I have had to spend time outside trying to tidy up around the house, and plant some flowers to brighten the place up a bit.
Here's a look at the front of our humble home,( and there is still a lot to do.) The kids and I have painted the fence in the evenings - it's good they like to get involved.
I've also been busy quilting and have to say even though it is a work of patience, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It must be good therapy after a busy day to sit and stitch and calm down. Usually I'm so impatient but I'm hoping all this work will pay off and I'll have a nice quilt.
Can't wait to do more wood working and get the power tools out again - I can see more benches appearing about the place - just need to curb the impatience! LOL!
