Sneak peek into my current projects

I've got a lot of projects in the works but nothing completed enough to show you a finished product. 

First on my list is a giant cupboard I'm finishing for a friend.  Isn't this blue stain pretty?  This will be in the inside. 

When it gets too dark to work outside, I head inside to sit at my sewing machine.  This is a custom order I did for a customer.  I had a great time making these posies for the first time.  I think I'll make some more. 

My utility room is getting a makeover.  It's been hard to work in this room because I have to work around a washer, dryer, hot water heater, and chest freezer.  I should be done in a few days.

This ugly little broom holder is getting a makeover too.  It's still functional so I thought it needed a little TLC.

Of course, wedding plans are still in full swing.  My daughter is busy finishing her thesis, which is due on Sunday, so I'm helping out with the party favors (yummy apple butter).

I just love the look of canning jars cooling on the counter.

What kind of projects are you working on? 


  1. What a fun list of projects you have cooking!!! The blue stain is indeed pretty... hope you'll show us the finished product!

    I'm working on my garden. And I'm working on my new job, creating millions of new wrinkles in my brain and on my face! *smile*

  2. Those canning jars are a beautiful sight. They make you feel so accomplished and industrial!

    The blue color of that stain is gorgeous. Blue is a favorite of mine, so it appeals to me so much.

    The flower is adorable -- is it on a tote?

    And, I love the beaderboard in your laundry room. I can't wait to see the end result!

  3. Ooooh, I just love that posie. And apple butter for wedding favors - PERFECT! Love that idea.

    Hey, what's the date, by the way?


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
