Finally, something new on the design wall. I found this pattern on the web and decided to play with a fat quarter pack from Robert Kaufman. There are also a few disappearing pinwheels in the churn dash pattern – I just can’t stop making those.
Most of the last several weeks have been spent working on kitchen cabinets at my sister / brother in law’s new home. It is a foreclosure and needs a lot of work. I do like working with wood, so I am refinishing all the kitchen cabinets. The face frames are all finished – they could start using them Sunday. I finished the drawers last night – I brought them home so I could work on them here. They started as dark as the inside of the deep one.
Now to tackle the 27 cabinet doors. I’ve started sanding the finish off a few, but am stripping the curved parts to maintain their shape. I did buy an attachment for the Mouse to get into small parts, so I may go back to sanding even the curves. It is a slow process either way.
I also finished these “boxes” for DH’s railroad. They go on the face frame and hold waybills.
Last item is the estate sale doll bed that I refinished. I will use it at the guild quilt show boutique to display doll quilts for sale. It fits my DGDs’ American girl dolls. It holds two dolls at a time. I want to make a single one as well – just to play with some wood.
My hands are complaining, so hope to finish soon and return to quilting. I do love, however, working with wood.
