Some Works in Progress

Believe it or not, I'm still working on this little baby blanket.  

I finished up one skein of yarn and am getting ready to join in the next.  My crochet motivation has been fleeting lately.  The two blankets in the background are one of my Fireside Cheers and a basketweave afghan I made for my husband's birthday a few years ago.  

The other work in progress is of course, the house.

I'm happy to say that the house is under roof!

We spoke with our project manager yesterday and it sounds like they will be putting on the shingles for the roof toward the end of next week.  After that, the heating, plumbing, windows and doors.  

We are meeting with him and their septic person next week to discuss placement.  From what he said, it sounds like the septic will be able to go on the west side of the house which will leave our backyard for gardening (yippee!).

The guys were busy last night and today working on the house.  It's exciting to see the progress, but I'm anxious for it to be done and to move in.  

It's been raining off and on since Thursday, so we are headed to the movies later this afternoon to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.  It looks cute.  

Happy Saturday,



  1. How exciting to see your house coming together! Will be fun to see the details come out the closer it gets to being finished. You know I love that Fireside blanket in the background. Mine is still in a bag somewhere only about 1/6 finished.
