This old dresser has been used in many places over the years. I believe it was in Nolan's room when he was a baby. It was in our baby's room and now it houses my thread and pantos. Nolan helped me add a removable ironing surface to the top. Birch plywood, batting and 1/2m of fabric leftover from a kit somewhere along the way. I am really enjoying this latest recycling project.
Here is the first block in the the Bullas Bears Block of the Month Quilt. It is called "Joy Bearer". There is a little more embellishing that will happen after quilting. Snowflake buttons and some shading on the bear's cheeks and muzzle. This pattern is found in the Quilt Pattern Magazine. It is designed by Nan Baker, and is based on the artwork of Will Bullas.
And the basement... we have decided to hold off on the flooring in the studio until the rest of the basement is ready for flooring. This weekend consisted of some paneling removal. Remove the paneling and what do we find? The chimney clean out for the living room fireplace! Even though we don't have intentions of using the wood burning fireplace, I think we will leave it accessible!
And the framing and drywalling of the bulk head.
I was enlisted to assist with the drywall. (I do help occasionally.)
My job became just getting the T into place.
All in all, not a bad week!
