Getting ready

My sewing machine is in the shop, naturally I am upset about this because it was a horrible April fools trick for my machine to play on me. It had been working so well, I brought home two quilt kits to work on this week and then yesterday BOOM sorry no longer working 😭

I had actually started to do more stuff

 

I upcycled old sheets that Toph can’t stand

  

I made a mattress for the bunkbed that Lorelai and Toph MADE out of cardboard  

  
I had bought fabric to make quilts for the kids. 

Instead of dwelling on it yesterday, we decided to clean our “brand new” chicken tractor, oh yeah baby we bought this beautiful 27 nesting box chicken tractor

   
 We haven’t put the top back on, but it is awesome!!!

Of course it came with its own chicken poop 

   
   Let me tell you, if you day dream about owning a farm, clean out a chicken coop first. Seriously go to your local farmer and say “hey, let me clean that for you”, if you can do it without tossing your guts then you will be fine, sure you may question your sanity, but that is totally normal.

Also, if you can’t get that coop clean, a pressure washer is awesome!

  
As we Toph found out yesterday (well….not near the corners). Now we have this nice beautiful chicken tractor all clean and ready for the birds that will be making their appearance in about two weeks

   
   
Also almost ready on the farm, the portable pig shelter 

   
    
 
We have a few painting details we want to add, but I’m keeping mum on that until it is 100% but yes, there is a reason the shelter is three different colors!

I’m still slowly coming along with my sweater, I had to take TEN rows out last week to fix a spot that yes, people would notice from six feet away but I’m almost ready to start the next step (yahoo!!!)

   
Also something I need to start working on more because now I actually have a deadline

  
The ragnar throw. We ordered two couches yesterday (we haven’t had a couch since 2014), after three months and five furniture store visits, we found an extremely comfortable, affordable couch we could agree on. I have 4-8 weeks to finish this throw lol.
Well folks, Leif is standing here begging me to make him socks (another project for the list), so I am off to see what I can do. 

 Have a great weekend folks!
