Here the poor darling is drip drying, I will alter it tomorrow and then bustle it up.
I sewed most of the day, the shop was very busy. I took in another wedding dress that was so smelly from cigarettes it is hanging in the garage and will have to air there for a few days before I bring it in the shop. Or I might throw it is the dryer with a dryer sheet on air fluff.
This is the time of year the shop gets busy. I really have to stay on top of things. Right now the house needs love, I need to take down and put away St Patricks day that will only take a few minutes. Mom will want to decorate for Easter. I want to find time to do this before I have to go and take care of my niece that is having a baby Wednesday morning.
This mess is the garden spot. Terrifying, rock ways torn up, such a disaster.
Here you see part of the drain I started to reconstruct and the flag stone path that is torn up. Oh and the cat that helps.
Here is the dog that helps and the stairs that will be redone and the brick walkway, the drain pipe and the general mess. Ugh!
Stairs that will be replace and the entire deck repainted. So much flippen work.
A view of the drain going to the turn around the end of the lot. Piles of rock and dirt covering every patio and surface.
See the piles of rocks that have to be cleaned. This large patio also has to be leveled as it is dipping in the center and needs to slope away from the house. So much work. I built this patio 25 years ago it is set on leveled sand. But I am much older now.
Here is the twenty feet that I started leading from the pond drain. I did it wrong and I have to redo it. I cried when I found out, but at least the rock is clean.
The disaster from another angle.
So this is my day washing wedding dresses and sewing and trying to spend a few hours out in the mess of a back yard.
The shop is really busy, mom is not feeling well and I have to teach today. It is going to be a long day.
So you guys out there knock yourselves out, I am going to.
Have a great and productive day!
