So, what do you do when each day carries possibility of a new little life? Some things are quite routine and unexciting, like cleaning the house all over again-although, with five kiddos within these wall and one busy husband, I'm not sure that ever comes to completion:) but it is worth a shot each new day. We have continued to work on a bedroom for Matt and I-and we may just have one by Wednesday if this babe waits. The taper was here almost every day this past week and Matt was able to prime the walls for paint last night!! We actually picked up the paint this afternoon and I cannot wait to see it on the new walls. We are figuring that the trim, closet build, and finishing electrical work will get finished after we start to move in to the room since we really want to be in there when we bring the baby home instead of in the unfinished part of our basement. Here is the progress...
Lots of new sets of napkins for the shop, here are 2 of them. Having fun with color!
A new little skirt design.
I have started on the felted wool mittens for fall. Not sure I am totally ready to dig in to that yet, but it was fun to get these finished and I know fall will sneak up on me faster this year than in other years.
And I have worked on turning a vintage bandana map into a fun quilted throw pillow for the shop as well. It is a map of the Rocky Mountain National park. I like wandering off the beaten path every once in awhile to work on something a bit different.
So, I guess, this is not the update I had anticipated, but that will come soon enough. Hope this week is one you see the Lord's blessings in and find rest in Him!!
