What I've Been Up To

Wow it's been a while since I have updated--sorry to leave you hanging (all two of my faithful followers!) I have actually been plenty busy with Primary, Family Reunions, Relay for Life, work and other stuff. I've been working on a few projects lately that I wanted to share with y'all too.
I bought a kitchen table and chairs at the Relay for Life garage sale. I was excited because the price was right and Pablo and I will be needing someplace to eat. The only thing is that they need to be stripped and re painted. As of right now, they are just waiting for me in my parents garage! I'm sure they are so glad I bought them!

My next project is a sneak peek for Michelle. I bought a bunch of fun beads and soon they will be your watch! I will get it done soon, I promise!

My friend Yesica from Chile is expecting a baby girl so I decided I needed to make her a rag quilt. I'm not much of a seamstress as you all may know but I do like working on smaller projects. Hopefully this one will turn out right!

HURRAY!!! You're back, i've MISSED you! What fun you've been having lately, I'm glad you're keeping busy, it's probably difficult without your man around sometimes. I can't wait to see your end results on your latest projects, i LOVE projects (especially when they're someone elses!!)

Boy you have been busy! Glad to hear everything is going well! I want to see your kitchen table when you get it finished! Good luck with that and the rag quilt!

That material is darling! I love it.

Let me know how the table works out. I've always wanted to be able to find something like that and see its potential and then be able to make it look how I want. I don't know if that last sentence even made sense, but good luck with the table!

Michelle said...

well look at you, miss domesticated, crafty thang!

I'm glad you've had lots to keep you busy to keep your mind off how much you are missing the Pabstah.

I'm excited about those beads. They are so perfect. If I was crafty and artistic, I would have picked out those exact ones! except that I'm not, so I am so glad it's you picking them out and not me. You rock.

I'm happy to see all you are doing! Keep up the craftiness and lovin'.

Hey! The fabric for your rag quilt looks really cute!! It sounds like you have been busy which is good. Hope things are going good for you. Take care!

Michelle said...

What fun projects! I love having things to do. You will have to post the blanket and table and chairs when you are finished, I can't wait to see your hard work!

You are so talanted! I'm lucky to get Avie's clothes matched in the morning. Pablo is one lucky guy!

Hola Beckita! Looks like you have some fun projects to work on. I want to see you next time I'm up at my parents sometime in July. Maybe I can help you strip down those chairs:)

You will have to let me know how your projects come out. Especially, the table...I have one I need to redo. If you want a trip to Utah I would love some help sanding and redoing it. Let us know when your big day is? Where are you playing to live?

Some days it's so fun to have projects, and some days I get over whelmed by projects, ya know??? It looks like you have FUN projects though.
