not all work is art

a few months ago we had a new storm door installed

and of course none of the places in the door jam that the old door attached to were in the same place for the new one

ever since we had that done I've been saying I need to repaint -- I even got a quart of paint

this week I finally started on the project -- by filling all of the holes where the old door was attached with wood putty

sometime this weekend I will do some sanding and then put on some paint

it will be good to get this all done while the weather is still warm enough that I don't mind having the front door open

I got the floor boards all stitched on this project -- so here we have the paper with the drawing of the pumpkins sitting on top of the cloth wall and floor

hopefully today or tomorrow I'll start working on those

more playing with beads!

my idea to stack the squares and connect it all together with a triangle actually worked!!   next step is to work another triangle on the other side

maybe today

lots of things to do -- need to get to it!

You're the first person I've ever heard outside of the Eastern Seaboard who knew what a storm door is.

Would that make me the second person, then?

Those beaded geometric shapes are coming out really neat; I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

apparently there is a dearth of information about the (un)common storm door --- who knew?!

heh, heh!
