Happy New Year!

The year 2015 will soon be in e rear view mirror.  As I think on the year, camp is my biggest accomplishment and my greatest joy this year.  Our first snowfall has occurred and will slow things down a bit.  Winter being delayed has been a good thing for construction.  

The pellet stove looks great. I need to get some pellets to fire it up.  

I have also been stitching.  Remember?  I do stitch?  I have to say that I am no where near the usual 100 projects complete for this year.  The number is more like 45.  Lots of things kept me from my favorite hobby.  Recently I have been working on my Christmas afghan. I do enjoy stitching on this fabric.  Happy New Year to everyone.  Now that I have found the Blogger app, I hope to keep the updates coming.

Kitchen cabinet fronts

Today I was asked to review and select cabinet fronts.  All are made from the wood reclaimed from the original cabin that my parents built.  The choices were various levels of rustic.  I picked out the one that made me happy.  It looks good, still has nail holes and made me happy.  One day soon the kitchen will be done.

Today we had our first significant snow fall.  The camp is so close to being done.  Today they plowed the road into camp so building can continue.  I hope to visit later this week.  I also want to share a view  from inside.  This was taken earlier this fall.  I just love this place.

Current Camp Status

It is hard to believe that we started (and completed) demolition on the camp on August 10th.  Now we are looking at completion.  The weather is been fantastic. Although I learned early to wear lined jeans when it is cold.  One must remember that this is a camp, a cabin in the woods. So many memories for my family.  I will share some in the future.  Meanwhile the camp has two bedrooms, toilet room, shower room, great room, loft and porch.  

The kitchen will have cabinets made from reclaimed wood from the old cabin.  Cabinets and appliances are due any day.

The living room has a pellet stove and stairs to the loft.

Bedrooms are on just bedrooms........

The loft should be wonderful.  I was games, toys, extra beds and cozy spots up there.  There is also a mechanical room.  

Today the electricians were there working.  I try to check on progress every few days.  Tomorrow I hope to share some great window photos.  

I hear you!

  Several people have now reminded me that I have ignored my blog.  Someone suggested looking for an app.  So here I am giving it a try.  My photos are now on my iPad and not my computer. This made updating the blog difficult.  Now, let's see if I can make this work.  First I have to share a photo of the new camp.  This photo is old.  Most activity is inside now.  But I thought I should share one from the outside.

I will also share one of my favorite photos from the front porch.

If you see this, leave a comment.  Let me know if should keep going..
