Here are some of my projects from last year and this year. A clerical stole for a friend, embroidered napkins for family members, a baptismal outfit for a friend, and a new top for me ... Happy Sewing!!!

Our Summer of Renovations

For now, I am unable to do any sewing since we have started major renovations on our home. We gutted and remodel our bathroom to have a walk-in glass enclosed shower instead of a bathtub. We went down to the studs and fixed some floor joists and support beams ... It is so beautiful even though the work is not totally done yet. Just a few tweaks. Then we gutted the laundry room and removed the pedestals on our washer/dryer. We insulated the outer walls and had the room painted a nice soft gray. A counter top is being put over the lowered washer and dryer so that I can have a cutting counter at home. When the kitchen remodel is done, we will add a quartz counter top to my cutting counter. Then we gutted hubby's study (yes, he has his own smoking room) and insulated the outer walls, added new flooring and refinished all of the paneling with a beautiful walnut stain. We added a ceiling fan with lights and are adding can lights in the ceiling. All 3 of these rooms are being worked on at once. Then we are painting the outside of our home and shutters plus staining the porch flooring a dark brown. It is very unsettling to our pup, Max, so I stay primarily in my bedroom with him while the workers are here. Not much chance to sew.
