Last month's journal.
A friend has published a book, The Beaded Sphere by Judy Walker. From what I have seen she does extraordinary work and the book shows it.
The The Beaded Sphere And Variations - Beading In The Third Dimension is also available from Amazon.com

House is mostly finished
This last week saw the kitchen and bathroom countertops installed and the tile back splashes set. This makes the house done. There are a couple of minor details to complete but for all intents and purposes it is finished.
And the tile backsplash set in place making the kitchen complete.
Bathroom vanity complete and ready to use.
The wood stove was moved into place and the flue connected.

I have been gone the last several weeks taking care of some family business. I was very busy there while the work on the house continued. Several things were completed leaving only the countertops. There was a set back when a sink we ordered arrived busted. A new sink had to be ordered and the delay cost almost a week. All that remains is the countertop and moving in the wood stove.
One important item that was completed was the stair railing and steps. It looks really good.
Stair landing to the left and stove hearth to the right.
Railing around the opening where the wood stove chimney will be located.
front steps and walks
Exterior concrete work was also completed. Walks were poured from an existing sidewalk from the driveway to steps to the front porch. the sewing room, and to a small deck out back.
Walk to the front around the house to the left and the deck in the back to the left.
A small deck was added to the rear of the house. Future plans are to expand this deck and add planters around the edge.
