We put together a couple of puzzles a while back and I've been meaning to glue them together.
This one is the Yoro Park Puzzle from Slowdown Studio, and it is destined for the Airbnb. The box that it came in is super cute (and a lot smaller) and resides on a shelf in our living room, so we also get to enjoy the image. The puzzle was harder than it looks! I'd never heard of Yoro Park before... it looks very interesting! Anyway, my Mod Podging skills won't be winning any awards, but it's done... now I need to find a frame.
The other puzzle is much bigger, so I'm glad I got my feet wet with this one.
After almost 10 weeks without an Airbnb guest, and my will-they/won't-they waffling with resulting scramble on Friday to get ready, we pulled it off. He sent the sweetest message on Friday night:
Saturday was gorgeous and they took a day-trip up to Door County. It's a little early for cherry blossoms, but it sure was a great day for a drive.
I got a little goofy and tried on some sunglasses that were delivered for Kate on Saturday.
Tom Ford and Fendi! That's around $900 of designer shade right there, that she scored on super super super sale. They look 900% better on her, but I had a laugh.
Well, I probably won't ever have a Hills Hoist of my own, but I do love hanging my laundry out, and was able to do that on Saturday.
Rusty's been moving right along with the project.
It was a wet dreary mess yesterday (and today, improving tomorrow), so he was in the basement painting some windows.
I think I have all the yarn wound up for the Safe At Home Baby Blanket!
I've moved the middle of "E" down to "I." They're both Kool-aid dyed yarns that I made specifically with this project in mind. I wouldn't mind one more darker/richer option for "G," and may toss the stash once more to see what I can come up with; otherwise, I'm happy with these colors. I'm determined not to buy anything new, and I don't really want to dye anything new, either.
I do want to finish Romi's Mystery Shawl before I begin this, though, and I finally started on the final clue last night while watching TV.
We're watching "The Great" on Hulu... have you heard of it?
Well, we didn't actually watch it last night because of a glitch, but it's good! We like it better than we thought we would.
As mentioned, RAIN yesterday...
So, we finally rearranged the living room.
A few pieces of furniture are (or will be) gone. It'll take a little while to "settle in" but I think I like it... there will be some rearranging on the walls, at some point, too.
I can't wait to see the kids' reaction!! (Our cat is a little confused...)
