Design Wall Monday

I really don't have much time for sewing lately but this project is easy and is something I can work on a little at a time. It's a great stress reliever and gives me a feeling of accomplishment.


The outer most set of squares needs to be attached but it's all fitting together without any seam ripper action or additional sewing to adjust...my math came out right! I think I will add a small border of the background fabric and then finish with a fun print that has all of these colors...but I could change my mind. 


Here's an update on the new house. Hubby got the wood floors sanded this weekend and I spent almost as much time vacuuming up the sawdust. We are going to use tung oil to finish them...very rustic look. No one in Alaska carries the tung oil we want to use so we are waiting for Fed Ex to deliver it in a couple of days. Can't wait to show the "after" photo!

We have another showing of our current home today...cross your fingers we get an offer soon.
