Projects

Hello everyone! I hope you have all been having a good week. Things have been good here. I have been working on a few projects. I learned a new crochet stitch. It is called the basket weave stitch. I think it is pretty.

I’ve been making a few of these hats and ear warmers. It is a new pattern for me. I really like how they look and they are easy to make.

I’ve also been making more raised beds for the garden. I made this one for the A frame. Now all I have to do is fill all these beds with dirt. It amazes me how expensive dirt is!!

I made this banner for the garden. I think banners are so pretty. I plan on putting this one at the gate.

Last year I bought these stackable planters at Dollar Tree. I didn’t have a lot of success growing things in them last year. I plan on trying again this spring so I brought them in, washed them up and got them ready to plant in.

My latest project! Years ago, we all, as a family, made several of these birdhouses. Hubby saved the pattern. I came across the pattern a while back in one of our buildings. The birdhouses we had built are falling apart. So I wanted to make new ones. Dave came over Saturday and helped me make the first one. Then yesterday, I made this one on my own. I made a few mistakes but I don’t think the birds will mind.

That’s about all for now. Enjoy your day and God bless!

Dave’s Latest Project

Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a good weekend. Dave has been off on vacation during Christmas so you know we had to have a project! He wanted to make Jess a table for her kitchen. Hubby had oak boards that he had been saving so we decided to use some of them. They had to be planed first but I don’t have a picture of us doing that. Then we had to cut them down to the size we needed.

We started with the table top. We glued it all together using biscuits to help hold it.

Our helpers!

We used epoxy for the table top and tung oil for everything else.

We built the boxes for shoes. The table will sit at the kitchen door which is the door everyone comes in at.

It turned out so nice. I really like it and most importantly Jess loves it. It was lots of fun making it.

God bless!
