307: The hired help….

307: The hired help….

Some  people around here have the cushiest jobs, I swear…..



while the above hired hand snoozes around a lot  in my new favorite chair (more about that chair in an upcoming post) I have been busy….

just in case you think I haven’t been sewing lately,  I want to correct that perception….these blocks were all sewn and stashed this last winter… I unearthed them finally and put them together because I wanted something that didn’t take a lot of brain power and I have been TRYING to get caught up on things…. (yeah, I know, right?)


And then also we are finally getting to getting the house finished painting…when we doubled the size of our house back in 2003ish….we really never could afford to finish it…and we still really probably can’t….but the first part we built really needed painting badly…so we figured we just better get it done….So I have been adding some more trim and getting the colors figured out…

We are going to go with all of these except the grey on the bottom…we’ll stick to the blue

…..can anyone say “painted lady” ??

That’s my summer…and this painting will probably finish up the summer for me….

What’s going on in your world??

    Pictures of green grass are highly distracting…although I would love a blue house as opposed to stucco brown fake adobe color of most new houses in NM….SIGH….I LOVE those quilts with those little dots of blue and citron, I have always loved that line of fabrics you used.

    Both kids off to school, home improvement projects dreamed up, home cleansing projects implemented in preparation for home improvement….no more homeschooling right now so more time for sewing YAY…

    Scott, The house will be so nice when the painting is done but better you than me! That was one of the things I hated most around the old house. I’m so thankful that the current house is brick. My daughter bought a house so that means we’re finally moving her in – and I can find my sewing machine again!!! I’ve been learning a new job so all in all no sewing except a bit of hand work for me.

    And I have a house full of those that have the cushiest job.

  • Curiously waiting to hear about that chair…looks like something I had in my bedroom when I was younger, except it had a cream-colored cushion.

    With the pink – I would say painted tart…..rather than painted lady… must be fun to dream of a unique way to paint… and with all the paint changes I wish you luck to finish before summer ends….

    Oh wow!! I love that quilt! I’m all about color, pattern, oh just business in general. LOL Some of my quilts are pure chaos but I love it.
    You have a wonderfully interesting house, and I’m excited to see it painted. Your colors are terrific, way to go!
