Since I started being a child care provider again there is something I miss…doing projects with Hubby in the garage. Yes, I still do a bit but not nearly as much as I used to do.
For a week and a half he has spent evenings in the garage. To be honest, he gets more garage time than I get quilting time. That’s okay with me though because he is busy out there working on projects that are for us. His latest project….the trellis.
Many years ago-likely 18 or so, Hubby and our son Buck built this trellis. I have long loved it. We’ve painted and repainted it twice. This time it need to be stripped before it was painted.
When we had our garage sale we had a “junk-er” person go over to the back garage and then offer us money for the trellis but both of us said no. It’s part sentiment and part that we both really still like it.
He’s got it all stripped and ready for me to paint. He hasn’t asked me to paint it but every indication he’s given leads me to believe that wants me too….saying things like “I need to get to town to get the paint for you”. Yep..it looks like it’s my job and that’s okay. I love working with him. Doing project together and working on this we like together really keeps us close…and it gives us a shared history. That to me is priceless.
Right now plans are for us to finish it up and put it on the east end of our future garden spot. I think there will be a row of flower garden before the actual vegetable garden starts… It looks like I have one of my weekend projects. What are you working on??
