Projects

I have a lot of projects that I am starting this week.  One of them involves these two pieces.


Plus I have a mosaic piece that was commissioned, that I have to have done by Friday.

I also want to make some more Pesto.  This time with sun dried tomatoes and basil.

So, I am going to be busy.  I love that busy feeling, don't you?

How is your week shaping up?  I would love to hear your plans.
Welcome Home,
Penny

P.S.  I have a new button on the top of my side bar, if you want to grab it.

Sounds like fun projects. I may start to sew some of my pillows this next week, and plan on visiting some friends. So it will probably be a busy week. Can't wait to see your projects. Hugs, Marty

Homemade pesto. Delish! My kids could use the French-English Dictionary since, along with Arabic, it is required at the IB school they attend. Love to see your projects. Best wishes for the week ahead. :) Tammy

I like busy, but not over whelming busy. Can't wait to see what you are doing and good luck with the mosaic.

Vee said...

Intriguing...I like busy, but without deadlines. Spoiled to the core I am. My plans are to feel better and get out of this house!

Terri said...

I am so excited to see the end result!

Blooming Rose Musings said...

Well, now I'm curious as to what your projects are! Can't wait until you disclose them.
I have such a passion for sundried tomatoes and add them whenever I can. Oh, I envy you that sundried pesto!
Looking forward to finding out about your projects. Enjoy your week.

Kathleen Grace said...

Those clues are not enough Penny! Is that a chair frame? A picture frame? You are a tease, lol, but your projects are always a delight so I can't wait to see what you do. Finals this week Monday and Tuesday and then back to school shopping with my youngest daughter, a family reunion Saturday and Earl and I are heading out of town for a few days Sunday for a MUCH needed vacation. Busy? Oh yeah!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Penney, I just took a break from my current project to sneak a look at what everyone else is up too. I can't wait to see what you do with the grain sack. Thanks for your sweet comments on my new table and mirror. I bought the mirror at our local Anthropologie store and I got the last one.
Hugs, Sherry

I'm busy in a different way with my little grandsons - getting a workout like I never get at home!
I received your beautiful post card before I left home, and will most likely blog about it - it was so pretty!

Good morning Penny, I always love to see your projects. Yes, I love to keep busy. Sitting and visiting on my blog is hard to do for long periods of time. I definitely get antsy to do something that needs doing. Around here, there are always lots of projects. smile.
Can't wait to see your consignment piece and this project.

I love what I see so far... can't wait to see the completed project!
Yes... busy is always better. ;o)
I've always got some work to be done in the garden and around the house, and my kids keep me pretty busy taxi-ing them around and needing help with homework.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
