Busy Week

The weather cooperated and I was able to get the new siding on the front of the house painted. No small task, as I found it best to brush the paint on rather than roll it. 2 gallons of paint applied with a 3" brush....can you say "sore arms"? But the resultse are worth it.
This is just a glimpse of the color scheme. Excuse the construction mess. Eventually (hopefully next Spring) there will be a raised bed vegetable garden here, surrounded by a fence. We are slowly re-siding the whole house with concrete siding. This is the first side done. The end around this corner should get done this month if we have decent weather.

I got the alphabet quilt top pieced, and have it basted and ready to start quilting just as soon as I pull myself away from the computer. One week until the baby shower it is a gift for....better get busy!

Love the color scheme. I hope you are giving your sore arms (and the rest of you) a break today and doing something nice on your birthday. Have a happy one!

The siding is looking good. Love the color. We asked our builder for cement siding and he told us although it was good, he would not put it on our house. So, we went brick instead. It is good to see how the cement siding looks when it is up on the house.
