My Brother's Wedding

My brother got married a month ago, and I was the florist.  My first try, but everyone seemed to like the flowers.  I don't think I'd want to do it full time, but it's nice to know I have another skill.  The wedding and reception were at our parents' farm.  I don't have many good pictures as I was running around like crazy beforehand, but at least you can see a little bit of the flowers in these.

A little bit of everything

The past week I have been working hard, this weekend harder.   I may have overdone it a bit today, but as of this evening, here is what the basement bedroom (soon-to-be guest room) looks like:

Two coats on half of the board and batten - I think it needs a third to be truly done.  The other half of the room just has one coat, but two hours is about my painting limit these days.  We also placed the order for flooring, so I'm still hopeful this room will be done for Sam's birthday party next month.

Over the past week, I've also managed to do a little bit of sewing in between painting trim, laundry, and dishes.  Here are some of the latest Farmer's Wife blocks.

 The one below is an extra block I found online from Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilts blog.
 Last block I made from the book. #83(?)

Well, back to my day job tomorrow morning and canning tomatoes in the evening.
