What a weekend! We've been in this house for 18 years and the original windows left something to be desired, let alone the one that was here I broke trying to open it after I let the paint dry it shut..eek!
A view of the opening. I didn't replace the 1/2 circle one as it was in good shape and it would have cost a lot more to include it as one unit.
Sapphire checking out the new window and the repaired leetle ledge.
A view from DD's room, note the HP scarf on the right, my first in the round project, I learned how holding your needles correctly made the difference in the stitches...you know knit every stitch is stockinette, but if you hold the needles away, and knit..um..purl bumps show where v's should be ;)
See, no painting required, well except on the top semi-circle.
Also 2 new doors, the other one looks the same ;) Some bad news though. While repairing a falling gutter, the contractor found what looks like major water damage to the chimney that we never use. When this house was built, they never put anything to vent the water away from the chimney, a lot of houses around here are in the same boat and most have had work done. Mine will have to have the vinyl siding removed to truly know the extent, yeah, that little estimate could double or triple after this. Therefore, I'm waiting a claims adjustor's call, you know just in case. Worst part is my siding is 15yrs old...so no matching it at all.. :(
Ok, so while this was going on I decided to tackle this mess as I couldn't do much else with people coming in/out of the house. I have so much sewing to do and I was tired of struggling to find stuff or the cat finding it for me.
I just love these cubes! From AC Moore, called Simply Built.(can't see it on the website though, gotta love the coupons too!) They have a few more varieties and I'll be using a few more of them when I make the move this summer to the room that used to be her's. All full with my sewing and quilting supplies and easy to get to, well they will be when I put the labels on the front!
So much better, I can move and see everything so well now!
Oh, not out with the old, but geesh about darn time huh!!
A few more inches on the collar, massive steam blocking, and buttons, and maybe an FO shoot this week..you know before it goes in storage!!
Well, off to sew in my new space!
