building, sewing, life
After so much waiting to get the new house started, construction has begun and life has gotten quite busy...a welcome sort of busy-ness. It's time to make many of the decisions that go along with building ~ lighting, cabinetry, flooring, siding, roofing material, etc. The window order is being placed this week, and they should be here by end of September. Lumber will be arriving tomorrow so that framing can get started. Today I've been trying to source exterior lighting; I have ordered some supplies as well to make some of our interior lights.
We have also been trying to take advantage of our beautiful late summer weather by exploring nearby waterways with our new-to-us kayak. We spent a couple hours paddling this creek last weekend and can't wait to go back and take it further towards the lake.
In the meantime I try to accomplish some sewing and knitting. I used an army laundry bag that I found this summer to make a tote with a removable cross-body strap. At tea time I knit and have added some new cotton + linen cloths to the shop as well.
Have a grand weekend everyone!
