A Finish

Well it isn't a cross stitch finish but it's a finished house that needs some finished cross stitch on the walls . My daughter is officially in her new room and has been for a week. She loves her new bed. It goes up and down and is very handy . This is the beautiful quilt my Mom made for her for Christmas. The colours are perfect in the purple and lime green room . My son received a beautiful quilt also . Will have to take more pictures of it .Can't wait till the warmer weather comes to sit out on the deck . The addition won't be painted till the spring but other than that all is completed. The empty room picture shows you the big windows and spacious room.
Haven't had much time for stitching lately as Elisabeth has had a tonne of appts. but all is well . She had her biannual appt with the orthopedic surgeon is no intervention is required so that is good. My work has updated to medicine dispensed by computer and we were the last floor in the hospital to change over so I had training for that . All these things take time and patience and thankfully we've barely had snow this winter ( although some is coming tomorrow) that it makes getting around a lot easier.
I apologize for the placement of these pictures. I find it hard to change their places. Someday I will figure it all out.
My dear son is awaiting word from his university applications so hope to have an update on that sometime soon as well as finally some stitching progress. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween

As usual haven't posted in awhile. Reno still going on . We are so very close but today not a soul arrived to do anything. Painting started but now at a standstill . Dust is cleaned up only to come again . Have been very patient and it won't be too much longer. Finally took a picture of a cross stitch finish to be framed and hung in the new part of the kitchen . Little house needleworks 'Garden Fresh'. Loved stitching this and the colours are great.Not a great pic , as I didn't iron it yet but will prepare it for framing and show the finish hopefully soon. Also wanted to show you two little Halloween gingerbread houses I bought at a recent craft fair. Aren't they cute?
Hope to show some reno pics soon . Hard to believe it will be November 1st tomorrow. Will show my progress on Lizzie Kate's 'Christmas Rules' soon . Thanks for stopping by!

My cat

Still haven't taken any pics of my latest stitching so would like to show you a recent picture of our cat Emerald (Emmy). The sun is shining, I had my first ballet class of the year and blundered through with old and new friends and feel stretched out and taller and a bit more relaxed.
Dear daughter is staying for her first after school choir practice . She is so excited . I get a bit more time in my day . Dinner is ready for when she comes home . I won't even talk about the reno as the only progress is electrical which I think is great but it is a bit behind. Not going to let it bother me though , it will get finished and all will be well. Hope to blog again soon to show some pics of stitching which I haven't been doing much of and can't wait to do some.Have enjoyed viewing all the fall stitching that is being done.

Reno so far

Just a quick update on how things are going with the reno . Still have to post some stitching and I have a lot to gather up to show so hope to do that soon . We have plumbing and electrical almost done so I suspect when that is completed the drywall will go up . Currently choosing all the plumbing accessories so that the bathroom will be accessible . We have windows so that is exciting ! So here it is so far. Thank you for your kind comments on the last post and thanks for stopping by!
