Change is Good

I'm late again posting last week's work.  I have no excuse.  What am I saying? I have a great excuse! I got a giant bug - well, you know where I got a giant bug... Anyway, I decided to change the hinges knobs and drawer pulls in my kitchen this weekend.  Of course, you can't change knobs without filling the old holes, and of course that leads to painting all the cabinets and drawers, and while the cabinet faces are off you realize you really need to organize the stuff you keep in the cupboards, and while you're at it you might as well clean out the refrigerator...  I guess what I'm saying is: I didn't post to my blog because I decided to make a big darn mess this weekend!  It actually is turning out really well.  You see I live in a house that is almost a hundred years old and when we moved in, I had big visions of putting it back into the shape it was in when it was built.  What was I thinking?  It's a labor of love, but with my framing schedule, I don't really have the time to give it what it deserves.  The kitchen was probably last worked on in the 40's.  It's darn cute and really has a warm homey feel, but some previous owner had stripped the cabinets in hopes of having lovely wood grain and what they ended up with was kitchen that looked like it was built of plywood. Ugh.   I promise I'll post some before and after pics next week.

Midge and Gidget are still full of vim and vigor.  I realized this week that if I walk at full stride doing my fastest speedwalker walk I STILL cannot go as fast as either of those girls with their teeny little legs!  I swear they break all rules of physics!  Little Gidget has such narrow little hips and has a really girly stride (one leg swings in front of the other) that when you watch her little backside as she goes really fast she looks like a pogo stick!
I'll write again soon.

Now for the good stuff...

Gorgeous framing! :)

I seem to recognize some project from some WIP pictures posted here and there in some forums and to see them finally framed... WOW! "Gorgeous" is an understatement! :)

I love coming to see what you have created! I would love it if you could post the designers of the pieces (if you know).

Beautiful work, all - but that Wedding Sampler is AMAZING!!! And I love the LTD garden (as I gushed all over the HDF board about it :) )

I like the "I do" one, in which there is a bride and a groom.
