Finally a finish!

Sit a spell from Pine Mountain Designs


At least a finish that I can share that is! It has taken me this long to get everything working on the new computer but now I can upload pictures again and the scanner should be working too!

I did finish 2 more things this week for 2 different exchanges so I'm not posting those pictures now. The finishing is done on one of them and I have to finish the other one into a needle book. Shouldn't be to bad, I'm doing the finishing on a couple of other things at the same time.

It's so busy here with the kids being home from school and we are still working on the basement. There's always so much to pick out or buy for the basement but I'm starting to see the end of it. I'll just grab some towel bars and such things for the bathroom tomorrow and then I should be done. If I do that they are nice enough to put it up for us so that saves Anders some time.

No, I'm not getting a craft room but I'm going to store quite a bit of my crafts in the guestroom! I will probably get a room of my own when the kids start to move out but I don't complain, we have lots of space that I'm using for my projects.

The kids are just home for 4 1/2 more weeks, in our school district they are getting 13 weeks of in the summer and I think that they won't be sad to go back to school this year. We have had the cousins here and they have been busy with their camps and other fun stuff but they miss buddies from school too. I don't mind having them home (we are doing lots of fun stuff together) but I can really notice that my yahoo groups are suffering, I don't have time to read and comment on blogs much and I'm not posting as much as I would like.

Thank you for all your nice comments, I'm just thrilled that someone still stops by here since I'm not updating as often.

The rest of my day is pretty busy too but with fun stuff! I'm doing finishing, I promised Emma that I was going to make a bracelet and necklace with her so she can enter it in the fair and I'm prepping the cross stitch class that I'm doing with our 4 H troop. I have 12 kids signed up and a couple of ladies from the EGA is coming to help out so that will be so much fun!

I'm hoping to post some of my finishing finishes later this week.

What a fantastic finish Kajsa.

Our summer holidays have just started here, although my eldest DD actually finished on 15th June as that was the day of her last exam.

I love your PM finish! It allowed me to hope for just a moment that Halloween was just around the corner and with it cooler weather. Have fun with the kids while they're still on break.

Summer break is winding down, I think our kids have maybe 3 weeks left and then back to school!

Kajsa,
so enjoyed looking at & reading your update. I to, do not take/make/have enough time for groups & blogs, but it is fun to look when I have a chance. I love seeing your basement progress. Brings back memories, as we built our house about 4 years ago! Half of the basement still needs to be done! You will love the extra space!!
