Kathy@Sewing Etc. is doing a challenge to get some Christmas projects going.
I have several painting I would like to have done ,so I took up her challenge.🙂
Here is the painting that I’m working on. These are paint by number kits that I buy ,then paint to my liking. I love to mix paints,and paint,and the paint by number gives me a design that is right in proportion…(when I draw I have problems getting things in right proportion 😏 so I cheat by using Paint by number.)
When I finish this painting then hubby wanted this one . Would love to surprise him with it at Christmas.
Will be interesting to see how much I can get done by the end of this month!
The first update is on little Felix, they have put a Berlin heart on him until there’s a little heart for him. He does open his eyes and recognizes his momma ❤️
Felix’s folks are handling this very good given the circumstance. They feel the love and prayers of many caring people.
Next update… the little raised garden bed is really doing good this year. I have put squash in the freezer .. shredded,and fried. I would like to make some zucchini bread yet to add to the freezer list.
Hubby came home with around 15 lbs of sweet cherries,nice to have those to put in the freezer.
Of course there has been camping , Leona’s best therapy for boredom.
Hubby decided that it was time to get a terrier . So Sparky has join our family.
The next project that I have been learning about ,is how to do my own essential oils. I use oils, especially in the winter in a diffuser for Leona. They are also great to have when her muscles get to tight. The problem good oils are pricy!! So I am learning to do the ones that I use the most .
Here’s the distillery.😄
Next thing that got done that feels so good to have done is a…..
Kilz, White paint, rollers,paint brushes, tape, old sheets ( that I dug out of the close just for this)and marble contact paper.
Bet one can guess now what I’ve been doing.😄
LouAnn is home from school teaching for the summer. She wanted something different to do before buckling down to bulletin boards and lesson plans.
I jumped at that .. this house needed a facelift in many of the rooms .
First we started on the little hallway that was an off orangish yellow( these were the colors that were here when we bought the place . The painted walls were in good shape so I just lived with these colors until they needed redone.) sorry ,I didn’t take pictures of the hallway or the little bathroom .. they were the same color.
