This last couple of weeks have been hectic with construction guys tearing apart our front steps and putting in new foundation. This little guy was busy last night making a web next to my computer, he's pretty little so I didn't mind get rid of him. Any bigger spiders I'd be screaming and I mean screaming for hubby to come and remove it....I don't like spiders in the house especially those big black ones....eek, they belong outside as far as I'm concerned....
The front stairs were looking pretty shabby, with the wood rotting away. They really did need to be replaced. It was hard for me to see them go.
Hubby's out there doing the inspection, making sure those construction guys are doing the job right. You have to keep a close watch on them I tell yah....make sure they are working and not goofing off. Stairs are completely torn out.
Look at how beautiful the new steps look, the construction part is done. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend.... painting of course. The stairs will need three different colours. The railings are black, the posts are a cream colour and the steps are a burgandy red. It's going to be hot this weekend but we have to get the painting done before the rain starts again....which could happen any day.
I finished this little sewing bird pillow yesterday. I made my own changes to the pattern and enlarged it to be 6" square. The pattern is from Artful Additions CD by Kathy Schmitz, you can find it here.
Have a great week!
