No new classes yet

Hi everyone!

How have you been? So sorry to be so long between posts. And also sorry to report that I have no new classes to offer nor have I had time to work on any purchased projects. Life has been a little bit busy. Our son is better thank God. It took about three weeks for him to get back to par but he is better. All of his tests came back negative for anything being wrong. So all is good!

I have quickly explained all of the other busy details at my Sew Practical blog. If you want to read it, hear is the link: Isn't life awesome!

Have a nice day!

Painting and Cross Stitch Updates

Good morning! How have all of you been? What have you been up to? Since my last visit I have spent a little bit of time finishing the second jar on the most recent cross stitch project and I have painted some more. I'll share pictures, although I'm afraid the painting might not look like much of an accomplishment yet. I have a new plan that may change that by the next time I report my weekly craft updates.

Have a nice day!

First Update on Morning Run Painting

There's no since in me fooling myself. This was destined to be a brief craft week. I  had only two days earlier in the week to work on this project so there isn't much progress to report. A little bit is better than nothing to report I suppose. The rest of the week is full of things to do around the house. I still have more black to add to the painting before I finish with that color. Hopefully I can finish the black and move on to a new color early next week. The black is more abundant and more scattered than the dark blue was so that's why it is taking longer. Anyway, I did drag out my magnifying clip-ons so that has made it easier to see those tiny numbers on this board.

We managed to place two deterrents at the kitchen door to keep the cat out so I could get more work done instead of more running back and forth to keep her off the counter tops. We placed a motion activated alarm at the doorway to know when she went near the door. That was to be used until we got the 41" high gate to place at the entryway to the kitchen. But we continue to use the alarm even though the gate is up because little smarty can squeeze through the 2 1/2" openings between the rails. She doesn't like the alarm so that remains our main deterrent at the moment. We will put something else up to prevent her from going through the rails now. Progress. All progress.

Have a nice day!

New Painting Project and Hummer Babies

How are you doing today? It has been a very busy week at our house. We started our son's first week of lessons, trying to keep up with the housework, worked a little overtime, after 6 months of living with us the cat has decided to start jumping onto the kitchen countertops so have to spend time bleaching everything multiple times, baby hummers are finally feeding, and I started a new paint-by-number project. I have some cute ideas written down for new classes. Right now there isn't time to concentrate on the details but eventually things will calm down enough for me to get to those. I wanted to share a little bit of my week with you while I have a free five minutes.

This new painting has lots of little details. I'm going to need a magnifying glass to see many of the small numbers. I worked on it Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I put it away last night and hope to get back to work on it again Sunday or Monday.

Here's what it will look like finished.

The babies are a little timid so I just took these pictures from inside the kitchen window. Sorry about the screen. Maybe we can get some better shots when they get used to coming around and realize they aren't going to get hurt.

Have a nice day!
