Time flies when you are having fun! You have all heard before. In my case I would say time flies when I'm busy! So many things are happening at the moment in my day to day life. Winter has finally set in here so the days are getting shorter and I don't seem to have enough hours in the day to do what I want to do.
As I mentioned in my previous posts about the Upstairs Studio, work began last week. It's exciting to come home each day to see what progress has been made to the building. Some photos are at the end of this post.
Now for the weekend project. A few days into the construction I decided to keep a journal of the building project. First I will need to make a book to keep the journal in. Next is making a journal cover. The weekend project started with boro pieced and stitching.

I worked on a couple more blocks for my online workshop I'm taking with Karen Ruane. I will be putting them together to make into a cover for my new journal.

Construction on my upstairs studio started last week and here are some photos of work in progress.

Construction is progressing very quickly. Everyday when I get home there always something new is happening. Since I took these photos there has already been a lot of progress. I hope the structure will be up by the time I put up next post.
Until next time
