I know it's been awhile since I posted. Life has been busy. We started July with getting the house interior painted. Things did not go as scheduled. There were delays then cancellations and then suddenly back to almost the original schedule. This is what we loved with while getting things done.
This is only downstairs. The chaos was worse upstairs.
When we had some yard work done for us earlier in June, there was a mishap with the siding. After checking with contractors, etc, we found one who could get the job done. Only there were numerous delays for one reason or another and several rainy days.
The tap is covering up the holes made by a commercial weed eater. Overall we ended up with replacing 4 panels. However, our color is no longer made. But the good news is that they painted the new panels to our color. After it dried for a day, you couldn't even tell they had to replace panels. Yeah!
Painting also made us realize it was time to clean up and out.
I have a large wicker basket in the family room where I keep needlework
(as well as in the basement on shevles, etc).
I had to empty the basket in order to move it and then ended up sorting thru everything.
Now to the progress
This is filled with Halloween charts to be stitched.
This is the bag of priorities.
Almost ready to moved to the center and covered in plastic.
The painting got done and the long tasks of putting back is still underway.
As we put back we are making "give away / donate" piles.
We have also found things that seem to have disappeared.
Meanwhile I am still in search of my "Needleworker's home" chart.
It is still AWOL.
Last week, the computer went down. We decided it was the power cord and went on the hunt.
A call to Dell offered no help - none in stock.
Tried one local store only to discover it was out of business.
and finally one store that we stumbled across had the cord.
Better yet, a sales person who knew what he was talking about and full
of helpful hints. Did you know that the led lights indicating power often
go out long before the power cord dies? True.
Now I am back an up and operating.
Tomorrow - progress shots.
