    I have to say I’m pretty proud of all I did do. I haven’t been lazy. I’m pooped though so I look forward to doing the more fun and crafty bits this fall and winter and the yard things which are still on the list next spring. And I’m sure I’ll be adding to the list next year…

  • * Paint fascia boards south, west, east, north (Couldn’t face another race up and down the ladder)
  • * Paint white trim outside (To few hours in the day!)
  • * Cut boards for botanical prints (Not sure I’m into this any more…)
  • * Paint boards for botanical prints (… I’m not loving the yellowed paper of the prints.)
  • * Sort Wille's stuff in basement with him (Still to do)
  • * Order fly strips for windows (I NEED these next summer, I used some other type and they sucked!)
  • * Continue scanning negatives (Cozy fall project…)
  • * Assemble travel scrapbook pages (… another cosy one…)

  • * Add photos to albums ( … and one more!)
  • * Prep for gravel in back yard (Next spring, I promise!)
  • * Order gravel for back yard (Definitely next spring!)
  • * Sew patchwork pillow (Fabric and supplies have been ordered…)
  • * Paint livingroom walls (Paint has been bought!) 
  • * Sew patchwork quilt (… and there’s enough for this one too!)
