As I was going through my fabric, I noticed I had a ton of pinks! So I decided that I would make a Pink Bargello for my sister! She loves pink, so that would be the perfect quilt to use all of these up on! First I cut 240 pink strips!!! And them I sewed them into sets of 6! This took a while, but here is a photo of Smokey that I took! I went and got the clothes out of the dryer, came back in here and this is what I found...
Isn't he the cutest! I did finish one block so that I could see how all of these pinks were going to look together! Now it will take me a while to finish the others because I have to do alot of ironing on them. The funny thing is, my sister came over while I had all of these strips out and the block laying on the table and she picked it up and said that she really liked it because of all the pinks! So at least I know that she will like it! :)
Oh and I got another good photo of Donkey! He is soooo silly! I don't understand how he sleeps in some of these positions!
And Richard and I worked on the house a little this weekend too! We are working on getting the porch framed! We want to have it ready for the roofing within the next few weeks. I'm telling you those beams across the top were sooooo heavy! There are 2, 20 foot oak beams up there and it was all that we could do to get them up there! But it will be worth it in the end! I love a big front porch! The front porch will measure 8 ft wide and 40 for long! I can't wait to sit me some rocking chairs out there on it.....yes, I'm dreaming!! :) Oh, and we put in the 2 windows in the master bedroom ( the 2 tall windows in the front) they crank out, so that will be nice for a breeze.
Anyway, tomorrow I have lots of running to do! Need to pick up horse feed and pay some bills. :( Then probably the rest of the week I will be helping mom during the day. She is wallpapering her kitchen and painting here living room, dining room, and here family room! Oh, and she is also putting up a wallpaper border in the living room. I will have to take photos of it too!
