Construction up-date and more felt flowers......

Well, here I am again. Things have been real busy around here and a little bit crazy. An emotional roller-coaster is what I've been on but now it's slowed down and things couldn't be better. A life changing situation has come upon me and it turned out to be fantastic. I couldn't be happier.....sorry to sound so vague but trust me that it's all good.

Now for the constuction....it's going great. We had a couple of snags but we seem to be back in the swing of things. The carpenters have completed the outside and the siding is all complete. They will start on framing the windows on the inside as well as doing some sheetrocking and then start on the bathroom. The plumber came today and now we can start on the bathroom....can't wait to see that complete. The roofer also plans on starting tomorrow. Wow! Lot's of traffic around here.

I've been working on a few craft projects. Making one of the "Twinkies" a nap mat. Really cute fabric. It's got…

Felt flower wreaths.................

Happy Sunday! Hope your weekend is going well. The weather has sure been in our favor here in Maine. I know they predicted rain but can't really complain about this.
Hubby got to finish up his "grunt" work over at the construction site...you know the stuff that the carpenters really don't like to do...like tape all the insulation together round the windows and the rest of the house, and go under the cottage  and cut out all the old pipes and old PVC parts. Yup, he just loves going under there....yuk! that's a crappy job. Yesterday we had a chance to take the boat out of the water....looks like the end of boating season till next summer. I'm not really ready to put the kayak away yet so I think I'll wait a little longer. I know they'll be a few more warm days that I can get out there.

As I mentioned in the last post...that "C" had some new inspiration for me, well I was right. Got right into making some felt flowers. Wow! That was fun. So her…

One more try....

Here we go....I'm gonna give this one more try. I was given a couple of tips...Thanks to "M" with one T and PBR ...hope this works. Such a beautiful sight concidering it was taken right here in the backyard. Thank You "C" for sharing this. Would love your feed-back.

Well today was so much fun. I had a visit from a cousin. We got a chance to sit visit and catch-up on goings on. Then off we went to lunch for some sea food.. had my favorite..their clam chowder and a clam stip roll...mmmmmmmm it was delish.
If you are ever in Wells, Me be sure to check out thefishermanscatch down by the Wells Harbor....well actually you'll have to wait till next season as they close for the winter next week. Be sure to pencil it in your calendar for next year.

I know that this is a short post...but I just wanted to try this video thing again and don't really have anything else to talk about today so till the next time........
Bon Soire.................................

Fall Felt Wreath...........

I must say  things are progressing quite well with the constuction going on at the "Tiny House". Windows are all in as well as the back slider and front door. I think we made the right choice by adding the slider, it gives a better view of the river. The windows in the bedrooms are a huge improvement. So far so good...not too many surprises and yeah...we're getting close to going "over budget"! hehehe...I think someone knew that was coming!

I received this video today from my neighbor "C"....beautiful. I think you'll be impressed. I hope you enjoy it.

Now speaking of "C" I happened to look out today and something caught my eye. At her door was a new wreath...(she always has the coolest stuff there) that looked like it needed closer inspection. Yup..I went right over and got up close and personal with the wreath. OH My! I loved it! Made of felt and yarn....something right up my alley. So I came home got my IPad and took pictures of it...…
