I tell you….life is a bit chaotic with workmen all day, dust that is unbelievable and three solid days of jack hammering the concrete slab to move drains. What happened to my normal life? Meanwhile, I am trying to keep my distance while still being close enough to answer questions. It is difficult to try to dig into a good project so I am mostly doing bits and pieces.
I have spent some time working on my Nativity cross stitch which, again, has been sadly neglected lately.
The cream border is finished and once I backstitch the kings I get to move over to the final section. I’m not sure it will be done this year as I have to make Christmas stocking for the newest granddaughter.
I thought I was done with my Minion beanies, but I got a request for four more. How could I say “no”? Two down and two more to go.
I played around with a small project – a pincushion. It’s about 6 1/2” so it really is a good sized one. I needed one for my flat head pins and this will work great. The tutorial can be found here.
The week has been filled with family events too. Our youngest granddaughter was baptized.
We headed up to Northern CA for a horse championship event for another granddaughter. It was a national event with riders coming in from as far away as Alaska and New Hampshire WITH THEIR HORSES!!! That is quite the journey. This was a two day jumping event for her which always makes me nervous.
Finally….some pictures of the chaos around here. We have moved from our bedroom as it is a little hard to sleep under plastic with a tub in the middle of the room.
Friday was the end of demolition so this week should bring some construction. The bathroom looks pretty empty.
I’ve enjoyed my Sunday with no workmen, but it will all change at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow.
All is good.
