Wipocalypse update!

I just realized it's been a couple of weeks since my last update.  Sorry about that.  

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!  Since it was a three day weekend here in the States, I talked DH into making a trip to Menards since we were going to Sam's Club anyway.  It's only two ginormous buildings away!  I spent about $50 in lumber and a new can of stain and here's the result.  I now have a coffee table!  It's big but I have a pretty good sized space for it.  I stained it just this morning.  (It's nice to be able to play hookey since the boys don't have school today!)  You can get the plans here and build your very own!  It's modeled off the Apple store tables and is very sturdy!

That $50 also included lumber to build an end table.  I've been using a little stool and it just isn't big enough and doesn't have any storage.  This is another Ana White plan and you can find the plans here.  I shortened mine by about 10 inches from the plan.  It had to fit my space!  I just need to see what kind of baskets I've got and I'll be able to hide all kinds of stuff under there!

Ok.  Stitching stuff.  That's why you're here right?  Last week saw Window I again.  I've finished part 13.  Just three more parts to go and it will be finished.  I could finish it since the top is the same as the bottom, just reversed, so I could finish it, but all the straight lines get to me after a while.

And finally, here's Summer Knotgarden.  I'm going to go stitch the other butterfly on the right in a bit, get the jessicas done and get some beads on this bad boy before I move back to part 3 that isn't finished yet.  I'm hoping to get that done today and move the q-snaps to the right side.
