Well, we have gotten absolutely nothing done on the house this weekend. Yesterday the weather was okay but today it was pretty much a wash out. The main truss issue has still not been resolved and there are a couple of other decisions to be made before the roof is framed. In the pic above, I am sitting under the house where it is dry! That excites me but I told Allen, I will be much more excited when I can sit in the living room and be dry. We had intended to do a major clean-up this weekend and as you can see it needs it. A superintendent I work for sometimes always says that weather like today is only good for 2 things. Sleeping is one and I'll just let all of ya'll decide for yourselves what the other activity might be.
Since there is no progress on the house to speak of, I thought I would show some of the beautiful work of the local craftspeople that I represent in my gallery. This is a hand crafted box made of wenge and bird's eye maple. A man south of Birmingham does the wood work.
This blacksmith is south of Birmingham also. I LOVE this door knocker and wish I could afford it for my house when it's finished.
A lady from Birmingham does these fused glass plates. The leaves are made of a glass powder that is basically melted into the surface of the plate. Fused glass seems very complicated to me.
A lady from this area does these great quilts. She was invited several years ago to make a Christmas ornament for the White House. She does weavings and other fiber art also.
