Stuff Is Happening
We have construction worker #1.
And we have construction worker #2
And from that we now have the bones of the new deck roof. Tomorrow we are supposed to have the tin on and then we will have shade and shelter from the rain. To say I am excited would be an understatement.
Now, do you see a problem? No, not the cat eating her dinner. Look at the closed umbrella. We didn’t move it before they started building but it is slightly taller than the roof will be there. I am thinking we will need to pull it out of there before the guys get back tomorrow.
And see, Ms. Murphy is already checking this new thing out. She went back and forth up there for about an hour before deciding it was time to come in for dinner.
And lest one thinks that I just spent my day watching construction workers (), I have decided to do the Funky Chicken BOM from FatCatPatterns. My mother collects chicken things and for that reason I am drawn to them. And these are so funny and the best part are that they are free.
I even drew and cut out all the pattern pieces for the first three chickens. I was going to begin picking fabrics but then I remembered that Tuesday I will be at Mary Jo’s in Gastonia, NC where I will have the opportunity to increase my stash, especially batiks.
And, I am thinking about this…….
I was looking for some handwork to take on vacation with me and thought I could probably work with these while visiting with our son and daughter-in-law.
So I prepped a few more. I cut the hexies out with my GO but I had to cut the cardstock hexies by hand (ouch). I think I will do a bunch more to take with me but if I don’t enjoy stitching them together they will be machine sewn together and will become a mug rug!!
