#1758 Short Post to Catch Up

Good morning to you all. It has been quite a busy weekend and I have a busy week ahead as well, so this will be just a short post to catch everyone up on what I am working on.

Over the weekend, I had several new orders that I had to cut. Once again, I really enjoyed working in the new shop upstairs. It was such a difference from working from the corner of the kitchen. Even though I made do for years, it feels so good to actually have room to do what I need to do – without making a mess of our regular living area. I am very grateful for my new situation and I will try to use the space in the best way I can. I am sure that it will result in much more efficiency. That probably translates to more projects. 🙂

On Sunday we had Keith’s mom over and made a great dinner. The day was lovely and besides eating yet another feast, I was able to get some work done on my little beehive ornaments. These are the ones that I showed the other day that will be able to accommodate the small dangling bee charms. Each one will have a tiny pilot hole drilled into them for the charms. I figure if people do not want them, the hole is small and easy to fill with a little wood filler. I think that will work the best and offer the least amount of confusion.

I also created a new surface which is a larger beehive. This one will be used for a plaque. It is about 8″ wide and 9″ tall and is just as cute as the little ones are.

I began working on them on Sunday, and this is how far I got:

So far I am pleased with the result – but the BEST part is yet to come. 🙂

I had to go to Halifax for some things yesterday, so my Monday was rather ‘lost’ work wise. We didn’t return until the evening, and I was so tired I went to bed around 9pm. But that left me feeling rested and ready to tackle today.

I am going to be working on them all day today and I should be able to update you all tomorrow. I have already had inquiries for them, but I prefer to wait until I get my patterns done until I post them on the site. Again – that will cause the least amount of confusion.

With that said, I will keep my promise in keeping this blog short. (You didn’t think I could do it, did you??)

I wish you all a wonderful and creative day today.  Happy Tuesday to you! 😀

    I finally figured out if I get to your posts from FB instead of the website I can now again see the photos! YAY! So glad you are settling into your new space and hope maybe someday you’ll give us a virtual tour. Love love the beehives – they are adorable. I agree with it being so nice not to have to do your work/crafts in your living space. At least for me makes me feel way less rushed to finish them.

    1. Thank you! I am glad you found us! That is why I started posting here as well. Some were having trouble getting the blog from the site.
      Yes – it is a wonderful change! I hope it allows me to just create more. Thanks so much for the kind comments and stopping by. Feel free to subscribe to the blog if you like. I will try to post several times per week with what I am up to. 🙂 Have a great day, Sheila
