It's a good thing I have an incentive project. Something that can be done in the air conditioning.
I finished the 8 small arcs I was making. These don't as long as they look like they would, but they still take a long time. That was all the sewing I did, with some stars as leaders and enders.
And, of course, there was yard time. Not much in bloom now. Just a few things that can stand the heat. The Rock Roses are doing really well. This is a closeup, but they're putting out long stems and multiple little pink flowers along them.
And, one of the hibiscus. These used to be Syd's, but now they're mine, I guess. She only took her orchids. She left a LOT of hibiscus.
This weekend, there were regular chores, but we also started the painting process. We bought paint so we can paint the guest room next weekend and I painted the closet. It looks so good. It's going to be a showplace for my quilts. We'll be able to walk in there and see them all at one time and choose the one we want from the stacks. At least that's the plan.
I know painting a closet doesn't sound like much of a start, but this closet has lots of shelves and it was a lot more work than I expected. But, it's a start. The house was last decorated when it was popular to use a different color in every room. I didn't do a very good job of relating those colors to one another. This time, we are going with a limited, related palate that I think is going to look Maaaaaahhvelous!
But, there's a lot of work between then and now.
A lot of work.
Everybody have a great week!! I'll be resting my sore back.
