The roof is finished!!!!

Well, the roof is finished. Whew!! That was something else. Now we are doing things on the inside of the house. We have been without heat now for 2 weeks while they work on that. Since it is California, that shouldn't be a problem however this year it is so cold even in May. What is up with that. Where is the Global warming???? We are having a lot of fires in the evening and sleeping under our quilts. Probably they will be finished just as the weather heats up. The saga continues.

The Glitterfest Show was fantastic. The moment I arrived I was so busy that I never got to walk around and see what the other artists were doing. As I look at some of the pictures that other people took of the show, I wish I could have looked around.

Oh well, I met so many wonderful people. It was fun. I will try to be more prepared for the one in the fall so that I can allow myself some time to see other artists booths.

Here is a photo of one of the little dresses I made to display some buttons on for my table at Glitterfest. So cute!!!

Just when I think I have seen it all.....

Look at these shoes. Sometimes you think you have thought of everything and then you see something and are totally amazed at what someone else thought of and produced for you to see. Wow!!!

Sunday is a peaceful day. Happy Mothers Day everyone!!!

All last week all I heard all day long was hammering, banging, yelling, crash boom bang and beep beep when the giant truck backs up. I see I have another week of the roofers. Their compressor is right outside my office door. Just when you get used to the noises it turns on. The roof is looking very nice. We are using triple lament and I am pleased with the result. We are trying to figure out the bathroom. Last night we went to home depot. ARRRGGGG!!!

Anyway I managed to finish the cool shirt that I made from a vogue pattern. When I saw the dress pattern I thought oh my gosh it looks like a sack of potatoes. But I thought it would make a good loose studio shirt. It has great pockets and I liked the way I could mix up the fabric. I bought the fabric from an online store called Hawthorne Fabrics. They have really nice stuff.

I am busy making pins and buttons for the Glitterfest show. That is going to come up faster than I think.

This too shall pass!!!

So, I wake up to the sound of saws. It's saturday, I thought they would take a day off. This is the fourth day of tree trimming. I was feelin so low and then I had to come out to the office to check my email and this is the video I came across. Someone is trying to tell me something.
