progress part two.

we had grand plans to finish painting the trim work this weekend,
but mother nature wasn't on the same page with us.
saturday, two of chris's friends came over in the pouring rain to help, bless their hearts, but all they could do was scrape paint since it was literally pouring down rain (with occasional thunder and lightning too just to make it a little more interesting). the poor guys were soaking wet and freezing cold!
on a positive note, the screened in porch was able to get painted.
there are lots of touch ups to do still, but here is one of the walls nearly complete.

on another positive note....since it rained all weekend, i got a bunch of crafting done.
finally, i was able to finish up all the projects that have been sitting on my craft table for months now.
projects completed were...
burlap/felt wreath for our front door (pics to come)
2 baby onsies for friends (pics to come)
2 necklaces for a birthday gifts
6 rosette headbands
oh and one last exciting thing....i got my sweater in the mail, that had been patienly waiting for....
it was the one i blogged about last week here...the colorful grandfather cardigan.
it came just in time for me to wear it to my friend rachel's birthday lunch.
for a rainy gloomy weekend, we got a lot done.

happy monday!
