A good friend and architect took our dreams and put them into blueprints. Starts to feel really real after that.
We got the footers in and the slab poured. Do you know how heavy cinder blocks are? And how hard they are on gloves??
They got moved more than once in and out of those footers...or rather, these footers...
Big truck...BIG TRUCK,
which was the reason we had to build a really nice road down to our homebuilding site.
Let the pouring begin! And they only collapsed one small section of the wall.
... waiting for floors and walls and dreams and songs and crafting and love
and the making of a Home...a Home where the heart is.
I am counting on still having time to create, as that is my longtime dream. The new home will have a craft studio - something I never thought to dream of, even when I was sitting on the floor sewing on the sewing machine and using my knee to press the go pedal or sleeping on only half of the bed because the rest was covered with the latest project of eating standing up instead of cleaning the craftiness off the table.
Here are a couple of recent creations. I made a necklace to go with my "graduation" dress.
I made a felt replica of the logo for our local river restoration organization. It will be a gift for someone who is retiring. It was a commission...gotta love those now that I am retired!
So, friends, I hope you will join me on this newest adventure and chime in often. OK?
We have ordered boards and such to begin...delivery projected for tomorrow or Monday....
