After 3 months of she shed projects and terrible heat, today is a stunning day even though I'm stuck working inside. It's nice to have this break, especially from the humidity. I woke up early, planted a boxwood and put mothballs under the she shed, since that's what people do to ward off snakes, mice… Continue reading Back to Knitting!
When the she shed arrived in April there were a few cool nights still so I brought out a space heater - which was good enough, but not great. It gets quite chilly in NC at times. so something better was needed. This building doesn't have insulation, but it does have thick Hardie board plank… Continue reading So hot out! Let’s get a fireplace!
I'm really enjoying the tiny workshop! The shed company that worked with my ideas was The Shed Depot of North Carolina, located in Sanford, NC. You can create your design on their website, and then call Tyler and he'll help you with questions or to customize it further. I can't say enough good things about… Continue reading Still at it, but just about done
I bought a gnome named Gus and things got out of hand after that. This is Gus, purchased on Amazon (used) for $17.43. I think he was a return because his eyes were crossed. After a while, I thought I could fix his eyes since I like to paint. I got carried away and touched… Continue reading The Gnome Rescue Project
It's been a fun week working on the tiny workshop after the husband completed the interior painting with a sprayer. Painting was my birthday gift - and it was the best gift. The gift of someone's time and effort. We ordered Zinser exterior paint in the 5 gallon bucket and he ran out, probably because… Continue reading The Tiny Workshop – My She Shed – Part 3
Delivery day for the tiny workshop was yesterday and now it's supposed to rain for quite a while. But there's so much I want to do and I'm not a patient person. I want to be, but I'm just not. The shed company that worked with my ideas was The Shed Depot of North Carolina,… Continue reading The Tiny Workshop – My She Shed – Part 2
The tiny workshop will have 2 windows and though I want to stay away from too much fabric out there, I did want something special. These were crocheted with Aunt Lydia's Bamboo thread (which is crazy soft, unlike bedspread cotton), in the color mushroom and with a free pattern called Lacy Heart Curtains but I… Continue reading Filet Crochet Valances
I've decided that a tiny workshop is in order to take my messy crafts outdoors. The Mr has his HUGE one, so how about my own spot? I don't like the phrase 'she shed' for some reason because it's a working place, a maker's room, a workshop for sure. I made my sketch, sent it… Continue reading The Tiny Workshop – My She Shed
We have a new granddaughter and she's just precious. Some crochet that was made for her arrival. Here are links to the patterns: Purple crocheted hat, purple crocheted sweater, pink knit sweater and the white hat has no pattern, but the pom was bought at Michael's.
So, I bought a very odd and old floor lamp, that weighs a ton, and spray painted it Grinch green because - well - I had that color. There was no plan, no great artistic statement, but I feel like all this 'fly by the seat of my pants' worked out very well this one… Continue reading Crocheted Lamp Shade
