I thought I should mention that I am still up at the lake, where I've been for some time now. We are planning to sell the cabin here-- hopefully this spring or summer, and there are jobs that have to be done before it is ready to be for sale. So, I have been here working at things like: putting down tile floor in the bathroom, kitchen and entryway. Sanding the wood floors (pine) and varethane-ing them. Doing baseboards.
Well, that doesn't take long to describe, but it sure does take a long time to actually do. I like to do this sort of thing, so it's fine. It was a bit of a sudden decision to put the cabin up for sale, though, so that's why I am doing it all at once at such short notice.
Unfortunately, it is all pretty messy and dusty, which means that things haven't been too conducive to sewing! I did bring up a little fabric, but only have spent about 2 hours sewing during the last week.
However, one afternoon I did a little drawing with pencil and paper, which I haven't done for ages, it seems. It was sort of fun, and I'd forgotten that I like to draw. It seems that usually when I draw it is a sketch for something that I plan to make later in 3-D.
Well, I just thought that I'd mention why i haven't been blogging lately!
Also, I am sorry that I haven't posted a photo of the completed apron from last time-- I took it in to the shop, but forgot my camera that day and I've been here ever since!
Hope you all are well and enjoying the spring-like weather that I understand is happening further south of here!
