A finish of a different sort!
Woohoo!!! After a few long months of work, the bed my husband made is done. We did not have a pattern for this bed. He came up with the design himself & I must say, I am so very proud of him. The bed turned out amazing!!!! No way could we have purchased one this nice for the cost of supplies for this. We didn't realize how time consuming it would be.....cutting wood, conditioning the wood, staining, putting poly on, putting together, etc..... But, it is now complete & we love it.
On the stitching front, I haven't had a lot of time this past week. Our grandsons came for another visit on Tues. They will be here all this week as well. So, I am very busy, chasing after 3 very busy little boys!!!
I worked on my B. Potter piece a lot since my last post, but will wait to take a picture until the end of the month.
I am also working on a quilt square for a friend. It is the letter C surrounded by a butterfly & flowers. Very pretty, but oh my! Very detailed, so time consuming. It will be so pretty when finished.
We have started working on our garden. Hope to get more done THIS WEEKEND, after the boys go home.
Have a great week everyone! Happy Monday!!!!
