Like this rock painted to look like a lemon slice.
And a garland of watermelon pompoms.
For the last week, I have been kind of beating myself up for "wasting" the last 2 1/2 months and not getting any sewing done. Here I have finally had all this "free" time and have spent virtually no time in my sewing room. But then I started to make a list of the things we have gotten done.
Just this week, we repainted all the baseboards in our house.
We made furniture (desk from Sauder).
And I have to say, Sauder gets extra points for having every single screw and part labeled and in its own compartment, with easy to follow instructions (and a place to get video tutorials if you needed extra help). Although with Mark spending 30 years in the cabinet industry, he knows his way around cabinet hinges and how to adjust drawers.
So this desk is stable. And we made it through desk construction emotionally stable. :)
This cutie lost her first tooth.
The other huge project I completed this week was going through every.single.picture.folder on my computer. It's something I have been wanting to do for years. It all started when I wanted to find some pictures of a specific quilt. And realized it was like finding a needle in a haystack. What year did I make the quilt? What month of that year did I take any pictures? Total disarray.
As of last night, all my quilt photos are in folders by name of quilt. In the process, I also culled and deleted many bad photos I have taken throughout the years and screenshots I no longer need. This makes me realize I have not been exactly doing "nothing"--I have actually accomplished something in the last 2 1/2 months. A couple more things to do, and I'm pretty sure I will feel like sewing again.
In my yard. Does anyone know what this is?
Then the shelter in place happened and we couldn't pick up our projects. The store opened briefly this week, three mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. I quickly made a trip to pick up the donuts. I've been enjoying my mug. If only I had a real donut to go along with my coffee.
And then I took one of Ella and Stacie.
