Can I just start off by saying this.... It's mid May ALREADY?!?!?! Seriously, the time has just been flying by lately. Maybe it's because there's been so much on the go around these parts. But holy cow let's slow it down just a tad ;) This weekend was Victoria Day long weekend.... which is typically recognized as the official start of the summer season. So we took it easy instead of running around everywhere and soooo glad we did! It turned out nice, no thunderstorms like the weatherman predicted ;)
Now... I've got so much to share with you over the coming days/weeks/months that I can't wait to get started. But here are a couple of sneak peeks at least at what I've been working on...
Sewing, well let's just say there's been a LOT of sewing lately. Including some much needed boy sewing!
Yessssss... I've finally broken out of my boy sewing dry spell and my guys are sure happy about it! I've got a slew of things lined up for them now! Including some shorts for the hot weather that we've been having (seriously... they outgrew all their shorts from last year!!!! Who would have thought?!?)
A has also gotten some new wardrobe pieces and I've decided to try to get a more concrete idea of what I'll be sewing up for them by making them each their own wardrobe sketches/lists. Since I haven't QUITE gotten started on those, I'm hoping to start sketching this week. This will also be the push I think I need to work on my drawing skills :)
In other news, there's been a lot going on around the house lately! We're putting on an addition, renovating the house and working on the outside... gah... I don't think we'll have left a stone unturned by the time we're done! I'm hoping to share this entire experience with you. We've already started on some of the 'must-do' things, things that HAVE to be done before we can really get started. So definitely not the pretty stuff, but it's part of the process. Which I will be posting about as we go! But for now... here is a quick look at that...
I've been playing around with making renderings of different parts of the house, including this aerial view of part of the backyard. This one is mostly of the back, depicting the kids' area and gardens... I'm hoping to have everything drawn up or sketched to give an idea of what we're doing/going for!
And of course, I can't give you a proper sneak peek of the work without showing off the hubs in the mini excavator! This man... I wouldn't be able to do any of this without him! This picture is from earlier in the spring, but we're about the get the machine fired up again and dig some more... eeeeek!!!
Can't wait to show you guys more progress/plans/finished projects and all!
Happy Tuesday :)
