Time flies


Time is just flying and it's been almost a week since I've posted last. 
I'm amazed at how much I've had to be away from home recently.
Let me just say . . . I DON'T LIKE IT !!!!

However, I am home today :)

First things first . . .  carpet cleaning.


I absolutely, without argument, hate carpet cleaning. We had a old husky who unfortunately had accidents everytime she moved and I was pretty sure the carpet was ruined. The carpets look pretty darn good. I was warned that some of the stains would show back up after drying completely, but at least they are cleaner. I have promised myself to get them professionally cleaned more often.
A clean home - clean carpets - change your entire demeanor. I can't tell you how happy this makes me.

On the crafting front, I've been squeezing it in wherever I can.


 

Block 2 of my wool BOM is complete. So far the only embellishments I have are the beads included in the kit. I'm still playing with ideas, but the main body is complete.

I added some embellishments to Block 1.


Button and crystals are in the center of the flower.


I didn't have it in my original posting.

I've also managed to get two of four Wonky houses stitched :)

 

On to #3 :)

The weather in my part of the country/world can be very unpredictable and erratic at times . . .
Last week temperatures were in the 70s and near 80.

This week . . . not so much :(

 
Yes, that's snow you see on my chair and rhubarb :(

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity.

Hope the rhubarb isn't ruined for the year. You got a lot accomplished even without being home as much as you'd like. =)

I've had the same kind of week - I like being home, dang it, lol! I hate carpet cleaning too, moving all that furniture ugh. Your carpet looks great!

I love your wool bom. Such sweet details! And two houses done! I think you're doing great for not being home much, lol! I have to ask, what part of the country are you in? We had snow this week too. YUCK!
