Looking forward and back

1 Comment

Looking forward to a new sweater that’s coming along nicely, even though I can’t get the color to come out correctly (it’s really a dark forest green).

Sweater back.

It’s going to be a cardigan, so I can wear it more than if it were a pullover (ahem!). Of course this means that I’ve got to find buttons for it!

I was looking back through construction photos from the last couple of years—it’s fun to see how far we’ve come. These were taken in November of 2009. The 2nd one was just before they started pouring the front porch and ramp; you can see the forms for the steps, too.

Deck; November 2009.

Not yet a front porch; November 2011.

We had a lovely sunset last Saturday evening!

One thought on “Looking forward and back

  1. That wasn’t the swatch you had when we all had lunch,w as it? I love the color in the picture, but that is really different from the dark forest green I saw. No luck so far with the buttons? Well, you do have time. I so love the pattern, Joy. Such a pretty and classic combo. And, yes, wasn’t Saturday lovely? Chilly and windy, but lovely. Hugs!!!!
