I've been working on my pink version of Anne Sutton's free Tisket a Tasket BOM in the evenings. Eight are done so far, so I thought I would show you my progress. Where you see little gaps are places for future buttons. I decided I would use some vintage buttons I have as well as various other brown buttons to mix it up.
We're still dealing with some minor closing "issues" with our house. Little things keep cropping up that need attention. Just when we think we're home free - something else comes up! Talk about stressful. I keep telling myself this is all a normal part of the process.
And if it isn't one thing, it's another! Saturday at the Squash House we took delivery of a solid wood bed we ordered from Orvis. This bed will be in our guest room. It took weeks and weeks to arrive via several independent freight companies. Mr. Squash was so excited to sleep on a real bed instead of a mattress on the floor our last night there on this trip. They called to say they were running late and finally delivered it after 6 pm! We decided to unpack it, put it together, then go to a late dinner. We got it unpacked, read the simple directions and began to assemble. Turns out one of the side rails was split during the making of the bed! We're not even sure how it could have passed an inspection. How frustrating! Mr. Squash offered to call Orvis as he knew I was tired, frustrated and in danger of making things worse if I tried to explain the situation - LOL! They were very nice and are sending a new siderail, but it will be several more weeks before it arrives!
That's it for now. I promise to be back in a couple of days!
