Pages 6 & 7 close up.
I get so excited when I am able to move my scroll rods. Which I will probably be able to do by the end of the week. But I know under these colorful sails, is the hull of the schooner. Which is more fill in!
I estimate this project will be finished by the middle of May. Thank God!
Yesterday I made the decision to bake some more quick bread. Strawberry.
I think my mom will like them. Especially since I found out she doesn't like blueberries. Although I will tell you the strawberry bread would put someone in a sugar coma! These loaves are super sweet.
Did you know you can hull and take leaves off of strawberries using a drinking straw? I showed my mom how to do it. But when I looked when I turned around from mixing the batter, she was still using a paring knife. Guess the straw was too new age for her.
Last week we were able to pick up the wine crates for the coffee table. I thought this would be a great project that the daughter and I could do together.
However the husband has said, he wants to do it. Bad, bad, bad idea! Don't get me wrong, he's very handy. But he's the worst procrastinator in the hemisphere. I'm still looking at the boxed bathroom vanity for our basement bathroom. Uninstalled. My two table lamps, that stopped working. Bought the parts to repair them, and they sit disassembled in our garage. Not to dismiss the random things that require a run to either the dump or Goodwill. I prefer to live my live my life by the motto "be like Nike, and just do it!"
Not to say my hubby isn't a wonderful person and doesn't have wonderful intentions. He just hasn't come to the realization he can't do it all. I think it has something to do with he doesn't really like anyone to use his tools and many power gadgets.
I'd probably feel the same way about the use of my serger or seeing machine. Except no one else sews in the house. Plus, I took shop in high school and being single for 10 years between marriages so I learned how to do things for myself!
Ok enough venting. Daughter's graduation announcements came in, so I have to get addresses together for her. It's coming up fast. Think I'll just let her borrow my phone since most of the addresses are there.
Well that's all for this week! Happy stitching!
