WIPs With Friends

I have not been working on very much this past weekend as we were out at my daughter's house adding to the existing bird pens. 
 There are three more houses that need to be constructed, sigh. 
 I just want these done so I can work at my own house!!  
First there is making the base.  
You have to dig pretty deep and put down boards to keep the raccoons out.


 Then the framing begins.


Which, apparently needs a lot of supervision from Beep!
Actually, I think she was trying to fight my husband.  
She doesn't seem to like him very much.
You can see her up on the top of the crooked frame.


So I begged off work on Sunday and did chores at home. 
I did manage to paint another batch of flowers for the centerpieces.
 Once those were done a had a wee bit of time to stitch. 
 I did manage to get Shelby's name stitched out.  It matches to the printed letters pretty well.


I did decide to put interfacing on the back.  
Funny story.  
I traced her name and then thought I should put the interfacing on.
  Welllll, I used a Frixon pen and as soon as I ironed the interfacing on, the drawn letters were gone.  Sigh. 
Silly me though, all I had to do was put it in the cold and they would have reappeared,
 but what did I do?  I re-drew them!  
THEN I remembered about the cold.  D'oh!!


The scary one was Hallowedding.  This is a pretty long word and I was nervous.  
You can see how I traced it in this photo.


This one is with the stitching completed.  PHEW!!!


I hate to say it but that's all I managed to get to this past week.  
This upcoming week is not looking any better either!  
Bridal shower is on Saturday and I still have stuff to do for that!

I did buy a dress for the wedding.  Wanna see it?


I bought it at ModCloth.  It arrived and actually fits!  Woo Hoo.  Now on to a costume!

The bird pen looks very sturdy and strong. It should keep out the coons and coyotes. Blessings, Gretchen
