You Guessed it.....

Yes! A porch of course. We started the prep work this weekend, and the building will start tomorrow. Eight sharp!
I can not wait.
So, the winner of the bracelet is Beki. I will sent it out this week.



There has also been a ruckus in the hen house. This is only half the problem. There is still a fox out there. We have lost seven of the girls. Can you believe that the fox can get into the trap, eat the food and escape? Keep your fingers crossed. Maybe tonight will be the night that we catch him. We can not lose anymore chickens.


I will also have that tutorial I have been talking about, later in the week.
Go check and see if you have an old suede, leather or tweed coat that you don't wear anymore. We can turn it into something pretty cool.

That purse is so cute I can't stand it. I'll be waiting on baited breath for the tutorial. I'll be following your lead, *foooor shooooore*.
I adore a porch. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Ok - I LOVE the purse and will have to make myself one as soon as I get through this crazy week and dig out my very old leather jacket:) I hope you catch that coon - the poor girls. And I cannot wait to see the porch - I'm sure it will be lovely.

I am sorry to hear about "the girls". I hope you are successful in trapping your bandit or bandits tonight.

Darned critters, hopefully the rest of your girls will be ok. Good luck catching the fox, they are sly. We had problems with weazels.

Your porch is going to be so wonderful!

There may still be an old suede coat in the recesses of our closet ~ time to dig. Yours is lovely.

Sorry to hear about the loss of the girls. Hopefully you get the fox and can re-locate him/her!

Oh those poor chickens!! I love the color of your house.

I'm so there, mama! I have been holding onto an old leather skirt for a project like this, and this weekend, when I went to give everything to Goodwill, I still held onto it because I *knew* a time would arrive when I could repurpose.

Enjoy your new porch!
