Almost Done?

I'll tell you right now, I'm not talking about quilting. I'm talking about painting.

I just finished cleaning up from today's exertion. My poor hand. See my blisters? Do you feel sorry for me? haha. If you do, it should be because I still need to empty the cabinet in the background, and move it to the other end of the house, then paint the part of the wall that is currently inaccessible. I have no idea how I'm going to accomplish this. All of my big strong boys have their muscles in other parts of the state. None are here to help their mama.

See? I wasn't pulling your leg about the painting. The white paint on the tape is my proof. I'll wait for it to dry before I peel it off. I hope it didn't bleed. If it did, there may be trouble. ;)

See? I painted this wall too. And the ceiling. My part in creating this Studio - wow! I used the word STUDIO and meant it! - is almost done. I hope the carpenter lives up to his press. :)

I've fallen behind on my "hand quilt 15 days in June" goal, I think I've only done it 5 or 6 of the first 16 days. I plan to get a lot done this week, while I wait for the carpenter. I did quilt yesterday, really I did. Maybe I could pretend that the Hoffman is due by the 21st. Theoretically I could get a lot of quilting done in the next few days... hmmm.

While I dream of sewing, my husband dreams of cows and everything associated with them.

This little accessory showed up last in my garage last night. I collect quilt stuff, he collects cow stuff. Anybody want to guess what this is? It is NOT a rocket part! ;)

That's about it for now. I am worn out from painting - fade, fade - so I think I will pull out the chaise lounge and read by the pool.

I was joking, but you know? That sounds REALLY good. ttfn!

You have my admiration for your painting proficiency - looks nice. I think it is a collection container for an automatic milking machine. Your studio will be wonderful.
