Feeling Joyful and Productive in January 2023!
Happy Sunday my friends! Hope your week has been a great one and full of accomplishments and joyful events as well!
Since the pick up of the dumpster Rick and I have enjoyed catching up on rest and relaxation... nice not having to be at his beck and call right now for sure!!!! Rick also started deep cleaning the back porch in prep for pressure washing it! The man is a machine for prepping this cabin for sale.... just look at this....
Last Sunday between slow stitching I finished the wallet and have given it a good test run this week running errands and such and I love it!!!!
The wallet was a fun make even though I forget parts and have to remind myself from the directions and vids how to do certain parts... The corduroy and the fun quilting cotton I used on the outside of the wallet is awesome... This is my 5th time make this wallet wristlet... and this my be my fave... if not the butterfly one I made my mom is :) At any rate... the last one has been retired and the purse/wallet factory has been packed up for any more purse making in this cabin.... Hurrah!
So what have I really spent my time on this week??? Trying to get a handle on finishing my portion of the fusion blocks while Connie is still in a generous mood to finish the outer rings of crochet on each one of the 40 left.
Here are 20 squares I am sewing together with batting centers.... I have turned the ones in the bottom left and they are waiting to be stitched shut....

Above is Colorstreet's Morganite Delight! I really enjoy the strength Colorstreet nail polish strips give my fingernails and it lasts 2 weeks or longer unless I get tired of the color! Do you wear nail polish... have you ever tried the strips instead of the traditional polish???
Have a stellar week ahead!
The two of you have been more than a little busy. I like your wallet and I look forward to seeing how those squares are going to come together with the crochet. What are you making with them? Enjoy your stitching!ReplyDelete
Rick has done a wonderful job with the cabin, she's a beauty! I never wear fingernail polish, I don't have the patience to keep it up. I do my toenails in the summer though when I'm wearing sandals. I'm looking forward to the day when the fusion quilt is completed, I'm really curious to see what this looks like. Happy cross stitching today!ReplyDelete
Wow! What a difference on your porch! Looks great.ReplyDelete
I have a friend who uses the strips and her nails always look beautiful!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your hand stitching today with your pretty nails!
Looks like ya'll are staying very busy at the cabin. Your porch looks amazing. What a darling cross stitch project you are working on as well. I hope your day is a blessed one.ReplyDelete
Looks like the cleanup is going great and your porch does look amazing. Great projects you are working on. I get my nails done. I have tried the strips, but I am a klutz at getting them applied right, and it only lasts a couple of days. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
I love your quotation at the beginning of your post! Ah! Your “honey” sounds like a good person!ReplyDelete
Beautiful wallet! I love how you laid out your photos!
I’ve seen quilt blocks finished with crochet…which I hope to make one day…so many projects, so little time. Sigh…😊
Love the glitter nail strips!
