This is really a whole house update 😊. We are making progress and so happy to be blessed with our lovely home.
In a previous post I mentioned my friend Elliahna. She is the high school student who’s been painting much of the interior of our home.
She recently finished all of the rooms upstairs and she did an amazing job! Having a teenager paint for us has been a great blessing. She often makes me smile, like when she ended one day only halfway done in the guest room. Here’s what I found when I took a peek after she’d left:
And here’s how it looks now:
In my last new home update I shared my dreams for my new studio (click here to read that post – by the way, Elli loved the pillowcase I made her 😊).
John has been busy working on my studio closet.
When he had the walls and shelves in place he asked me to put stuff on them so they would settle before he secures them. What fun!
As of yesterday the closet doors have been hung. I’m getting excited. It shouldn’t be much longer and I’ll be able to put what I need where I need it! Although, with Christmas less than a week away, my part in this may not happen as quickly as I’d like. I’m so looking forward to putting it all together. God is good!
Currently I’m listening to a crew busily replacing the siding on the outside of the house. After moving in we discovered that there were many high places in the siding where birds had pecked through and actually built nests inside the walls. It took awhile for us to find a company we trusted to make it right, and we’re grateful to finally be getting it done, although I wish the weather would cooperate for these hard working men. As of a few days ago the yard was a muddy mess, but the last two days of snow and cold have made it look better.
All the Christmas decor I’d hung on the walls inside has fallen (or been taken) down because of the hammering, but we know we are so very blessed and this craziness is only temporary! Stay tuned, my next update should include photos of my finished studio and home exterior!
And I’m excited to share one more quilt with skinny sashing. It was made with flannelette by Sandra in Saskatchewan. Beautiful!
Thanks for the photo Sandra!
