My large crochet continues to grow and is nearly done.

Progress on the shed project is happening,
not quite as quickly as we had hoped, but it is happening.
The old floor is gone.
After a lot of clean up of the ground under the rotted floor,
we got a plastic barrier down,
new joists installed and almost all of the new floor installed.
That last piece is going to force me to learn how to use my table saw
to rip a board to the right size.
I am both nervous and excited.

Our Memorial Day weekend project is cleaning out the shed
and fixing the broken floor.
Here is the before picture.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture before it was empty.
We made great progress today and will be out in the morning to continue.
I'll keep you posted.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the mailbox today to find a box sitting in it.
I was not expecting any packages.
I opened the very heavy little box to find this small cabin filled with
pure maple syrup from Maine from my brother.
I cannot wait to try it.

I have finally gotten started on the Candy Corn Quilt.
Sometimes I don't really know what I want to quilt on my quilt
until I start quilting.
(Do you think I said the word "quilt" enough in that sentence?)
I guess I have committed to doing pebbles with the occasional swirl
in the black areas.
Oh yes, and a few spider webs.

Today was a most gorgeous day. It was cool in the shade and warm in the sun.
It smelled like a campfire as someone nearby had a fire going.
I spent a good bit of time outside taking it all in.
This picture doesn't do it justice,
but it will serve as a reminder to me of the wonder that it was.

Since I finished quilting the giraffe quilt yesterday,
today I prepared the backing for this quilt.
It has been waiting patiently in the "next up" spot for a good long while.
Many quilts have slipped in ahead of it.
I think it's time.
Pattern by Tammy Tadd Designs.
I believe it is out of print as I was not able to locate it anywhere online.
