Building

Here's what I've been up to...


Cutting tile and grouting! It's been a busy two weeks at the building site of our new house. The stone mason just finished our double sided fireplace.


Cedar trim will go in the center slot. The stone is from Hope Alaska and is appropriately called, "Hope Stone." Here's the other side that faces the dining and kitchen area.


We are going to add slate tile around the fireplace inset...it will be beautiful.

I  did work a little on quilting. These strips were made into four patches.


The four patches got setting triangles.


And now I've got a start on one of the borders for my Sweet Peas in the Meadow.


Yesterday I joined the half century club. Enough said about that! I have at least 50 more years worth of projects to tackle so I better get to it.

Your tile looks great and your new fireplace what a beaut!!! The colors you're working on even turn out to be in harmony with the parts of your house that have been seeing work.
