Life Needs to Slow Down!

There has been so much going on around here the last few months! I get a lot done but I just don't seem to have the energy to get posts written in the evening and in the morning it is time to get moving and get more things done! I will take a little time this morning to get caught up a bit.

The biggest project around here right now is the garden shed. Here are some shots of the work done over the past 3 days. On Friday Hubby brought home all the lumber needed for the four walls and Saturday morning we got started bright and early and got the first three walls up. The fourth wall went up on Sunday along with some smaller pieces. Yesterday Hubby brought home more lumber and the rest of the ceiling joists (if that is what they are called) went up for the loft.

I think we are all pretty amazed at how quickly this is going together! Many thanks go to our #2 daughter for her help! It looks like sometime today she and I will head to the lumber yard for the plywood for the loft floor so we can get moving on to the roof construction. The exciting thing about a garden shed is there isn't a lot of finishing work once the building is up. Just some shelving and a work bench.

Last week I got the second graduation quilt top done but just haven't gotten a picture of it yet. Maybe today if it isn't too windy I can get a shot of it on the clothesline. I also put my nose to the grindstone and got 7 blocks done for the star quilt block exchange so I am caught up for now.

Today I will also be heading to the post office with several packages. Baby quilts and owl hats are heading out to their new homes finally along with one of those block exchange packets (the others were passed on to my niece for her addition).
