Projects

I have a lot of projects that I am starting this week.  One of them involves these two pieces.


Plus I have a mosaic piece that was commissioned, that I have to have done by Friday.

I also want to make some more Pesto.  This time with sun dried tomatoes and basil.

So, I am going to be busy.  I love that busy feeling, don't you?

How is your week shaping up?  I would love to hear your plans.
Welcome Home,
Penny

P.S.  I have a new button on the top of my side bar, if you want to grab it.

  2. Sounds like fun projects. I may start to sew some of my pillows this next week, and plan on visiting some friends. So it will probably be a busy week. Can't wait to see your projects. Hugs, Marty

  3. Homemade pesto. Delish! My kids could use the French-English Dictionary since, along with Arabic, it is required at the IB school they attend. Love to see your projects. Best wishes for the week ahead. :) Tammy

    I have such a passion for sundried tomatoes and add them whenever I can. Oh, I envy you that sundried pesto!

  20. Those clues are not enough Penny! Is that a chair frame? A picture frame? You are a tease, lol, but your projects are always a delight so I can't wait to see what you do. Finals this week Monday and Tuesday and then back to school shopping with my youngest daughter, a family reunion Saturday and Earl and I are heading out of town for a few days Sunday for a MUCH needed vacation. Busy? Oh yeah!

  21. Hi Penney, I just took a break from my current project to sneak a look at what everyone else is up too. I can't wait to see what you do with the grain sack. Thanks for your sweet comments on my new table and mirror. I bought the mirror at our local Anthropologie store and I got the last one.
    Hugs, Sherry

    Yes... busy is always better. ;o)
    I've always got some work to be done in the garden and around the house, and my kids keep me pretty busy taxi-ing them around and needing help with homework.
    Enjoy the rest of your week!
