The owls are back on the wall.
And these are the newest ones to be completed. I still have one small one to do but I think I will wait until next month and do two of them together. These three were lots of fun and required a really long tree branch.
Most of my time this week was taken up with this. DH and I did some antiquing/shopping early in the week. He saw this and said “Here is your desk” as I have always wanted a big old roll top desk. Of course we couldn’t afford it even though it was less expensive than I had thought (not an old desk). Then a couple of days later he offered to share the cost if I wanted it. So I called the store and found that it was now 25% discounted ….. so I bought it. However it was 100 miles away and way too big for our already overcrowded house.
So we drove down, completed the paperwork and I measured it upside down and backward. Then home we came and I began measuring everything else in the house.
Saturday, while DH and our SIL went to get it, I moved every big piece of furniture in the front and dining room. By the time they gone back with my new “birthday” desk, I had the puppies completely confused and I was ready to collapse. But it was worth it: isn’t she beautiful?
Look at all those little drawers. I have been filling them up but there are still several that are still empty.
She is even beautiful from the side, isn’t she?
After all that work even Fred was tired and felt the need for relaxing.
And Stubby, afraid she would get sucked into the work, took refuge among the plants on the deck.
I have been knitting but partial socks are not very interesting so I will show them later.
I did start a couple of small projects. I had decided to not make Christmas gifts this year but changed my mind when I couldn’t think of or find anything I wanted to gift for a couple of people. DH has this week off so he will be watching football and taking care of the puppies giving me more studio time. All of this needs to either be completed or almost before Bonnie doles out Part 1 of her Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt on Friday. My plan is to put last years completed mystery quilt, Easy Street, out in the studio to remind me, when I feel overwhelmed, that it can be done cuz I did it before.
For all of my US readers, have a great Thanksgiving. As it is my birthday we are going out to eat, something we have never done before, and then plan to spend some time at the beach (if it is not too cold).
And for everybody, have a great week. Gari
