Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Earlier this month, Dear Hubby and I dedicated one week to add drywall, paint and a few more tweaks to the Wool Barn.  While I am not quite finished enough to give you the grand tour, I will leave you with a few teasers of what we have done.

Way back in the beginning - 18 months ago
Only this wall opposite the door has had drywall for the last year ........ no paint
Same wall but showing  my wool-dyeing setup .....
For quite a while, I didn't even have insulation on the other three walls. (Taken last April)

Then during my winter show break we added insulation.  It sure helped a lot! (Taken just before Christmas)
Finally some drywall last week!
And some paint!
And trim around the doors with some stuff put away! 
I promise  ....... a better tour when I have finished a little more. (More like when I remember to take the camera out there to take pictures!!)

I also just realized that I haven't had a picture of Sweet Pea on here in almost TWO months.  What kind of grandma am I??


A fan after my own heart!!  At least today ...... when visiting her other grandparents, she wears Yankee blue!

Blessings, Cathi

Hi Cathi, it looks wonderful and although you work hard in your wool barn, I know it is a place of retreat for you as well. Very nice! Cute little sweetpea...my Tori is due any day now. Actually the due date is the 27th, but we are praying for the 20th - my mom's birthday. Hope to see you soon.

"Sweet Pea" is adorable!

You have put a lot of effort into your wool barn. Did you put in an air-conditioning unit? I would have dye all over the walls having the dye pots so close. Looks like you are going to have a very efficient set-up in the end.

Your little sweet pea is adorable!!
