Rebuilding Update

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

The replacement of the exterior has been completed. Work on the new shingles is scheduled to start next week. After that, we can focus on replacing the floor in the boys’ bathroom upstairs.

In the meantime, the boys and I packed up and headed over to Mom’s house. I managed to get an incredible amount of work done, and discovered that it’s apparently possible to have a repetitive stress injury from sewing. My entire ankle puffed up after sewing so much each day. I actually brought what I thought would be too much to accomplish during the trip but managed to finish up earlier. There were several factors in that, including the fact that Dave stayed in Dallas, which gave me an additional 3 workdays that I hadn’t planned on, as well as the fact that my newer sewing machine apparently sews faster than my older one. The older one has been sitting over here and I had just been using it when I came over, but I managed to accomplish 50% more on a daily basis with the newer machine so obviously I have to re-think the issue of which machine to use.

The sweater blocking is done and the fronts, backs, and sleeves have been put together. Next on the list is a consultation with my aunt about the crochet accents.
