My Mailman Delivers!

Ha, gotta love those postal workers. Sometimes they don't bring bills! Shari just recently completed Waxing Moon's January Monthly Sampler and I loved it. So, being the sweet woman that she is - she sent it to me! The only down side I see in this -- now there are another 11 patterns I need to get/do! haha - what I horrible thing - have to buy more patterns, linen, and floss!


Thank you Shari! I can't wait to work this into my to-do pile!

Stitching this week has been spotty. Told you we were doing some DIY projects. Well, here's what we've accomplished so far.

Before ~


And after ~


There is still some clean up to do, new furniture and 2 ceiling fans to get, plus new steps and railings. But, I think you get the picture. Never thought we'd be 'white picket fence' people. Gotta say I like it though.

The weekend is here and there are chores to get done. Hope this finds you happy and healthy!
Get stitching people!
Denise

Aren't those just the best kind of mail days!?!
Love the porch! I can imagine sitting, stitching and sipping lemonade (or beverage of choice ~ depending on the day).

Wow Denise. The porch looks great. I would die for a porch like that. Many hours of stitching pleasure.

What an improvement to your porch! It's wonderful. And that WM chart is one of my faves. I wrote about it in my blog recently. I know you'll enjoy stitching it.
