Lots to talk about today! First of all I managed to squeeze in a few hours in on Winter Fairy Spirit for the PR sal last weekend. Between going to Columbus for a housewarming & visiting Grandma with Hubby & the kids, I didn't get as much as I wanted but I'm good with my progress.


Secondly, I finished Adia, the Garden Fairy for Kathy in the Mira RR 2011. She is so pretty. She is definitely going on the to do list! I even have the fabby picked out. I have to do a floss toss & finish my wips. Here is my piece:

Kathy's whole piece so far:

Lastly my next piece, coincidentally stitched by Kathy, is done! It looks stunning so far! So much better than I was even expecting! Kathy's piece:

The whole piece:

Lots of pictures this week. Thanks for looking!

Hope everyone is doing well. I know this is a couple of days late. I have been busy. Over the weekend Hubby got his Step dad's 68 Vet. She needs lots of TLC. Hubby has been tearing her apart so he can start getting her fixed. On Tuesday I finally got the last piece of wallpaper down! woo hoo! Wednesday I spent all day getting the 7" of rain water off of the pool cover so we can use it with all this heat we have. Wednesday evening Hubby & I washed the walls & filled in spots on the walls that needed touched up. Today I'm going to watch Maria perform at her drama camp. Then later today I'm going to tape up the wall so we can start painting.
Friday is the first day of the PR sal. If you would like to join please sign up on their yuku page:
I got some stitching on Kathy's piece for the Mira RR. Here is were I was at Sunday night.

Tuesday July 11, 2011

What a weekend. It was another run-run weekend! Sunday we started doing some renovations to the house. Hubby took out the plantation shutters that were nailed in above the half wall between the living room & the entryway. After Hubby got it out, I puttied the holes. Today I sanded the wall down. Need to apply the second coat though. Then we started removing the wall paper in the dining room.
Last week I started working on Adia, the Garden Fairy for Kathy's piece on the Mira RR. I didn't get quite as much done as I was hoping but I did make a good dent in her. But I had to go to the doctors Friday. I pulled a muscle in my chest & was having some chest pain from it. It also seems like the tendonitis in my hand is getting worse so I have to shorten my stitching periods. :( Well, here she is:
