When we completely stripped the house out (it had been smoked in for 25+ years), we took out the ugly stair-rail and it's never been replaced. This is what we've looked at for almost a year.
And though it meant Daddy gone many evenings using a borrowed shop to do this, we now get to look at this!! I'm thinking photo-ops for quilts and aprons and such, and also a place to connect the safety-gate for when Andy begins crawling! There's a little cosmetic work to finish, but it's very sturdy.
Levi's happy to show any visitors the new addition that he 'helped' Daddy install. I think it's beautiful!
Today was once again not a sewing day, we invited 'Grandma' Jeanie over for lunch and the afternoon and it was wonderful. The kids got creative with the Lincoln Logs, though....... they made a fire to roast marshmallows!! Ha ha!
