No quilting going on lately for me but instead I'll show a bit of painting I've been doing this week. This shelf needed to be "renewed" again. I painted it black and did some distressing using wax, the wall is really more yellow than the picture shows, I love the black against the yellow walls. I rubbed some wax on the edges before painting and this is how it looks now. I've also been painting the downstairs bedroom to be used for a guest room. My daughter has been sleeping over when she is working the night shift and because the basement is cool and quite for her to sleep in the day. I think she should have a proper room to sleep in and not just the couch. I've got all the walls done and now I'm working on the trim and ceiling needs to be done as well. I'm excited about how it looking and I hope it'll be a real pretty room when it's all finished.
Hubby and I went away for a few days to Pender Island for our Anniversary. Pender is off the coast of B.C. in the Southern Golf Islands and about a 2 hour ferry ride. Here is the view we enjoyed while staying at a swanky resort called Poet's Cove. The deck was really big and we could sit and watch the sunset each night. There not much to do on Pender Island but relax and enjoy a bottle of wine here and there. That's just what we did.....oh boy did we ever relax.
The local wild life on Pender, there were several deer around and they were not afraid of people. We saw many of them along side the road, I was afraid that we might hit one. You know deer aren't the smartest and I thought one might jump out in front of the car.
Next week is more training at the dental office and then I'm really finished for now. I've enjoyed being in the office to really see how things are done. The staff are patient with me and don't mind taking the time to show me how things are done. After Wed I'll have more time for quilting....I can't wait....woohoo I've been itching to get back into my sewing room.
