This past week has worn me out! It all started on last Friday, we had contracted with Empire to replace the flooring in our kitchen, so we had to rearrange the dining room so that we could move the refrigerator there. Then we were stuck in the house all day Saturday while the old stuff was ripped out and the new stuff was installed.
We also found a local company to redo the counter-tops and this was scheduled for Monday, so after staying up late cleaning up from the delicious Mother's Day dinner provided by my DD and SIL, we cleared everything out of the kitchen. The workmen came early Monday morning (I'm talking 8:30 early) and tore out the old counters and sink, so no meals were being prepared here.
The new stuff wasn't to be installed until Tuesday so still no cooking, the drawers were in the bedroom, all of my other kitchen stuff was in the living room (which was a disaster area) and I was forced to make coffee in my craft room. Finally we got counter tops and sink but no plumbing.
Of course while all of this was going on I wasn't sitting idle doing nothing. I decided that I was going to change the name of the Needlework School from Mrs. Ross' to Mrs. Gray's and instead of Philadelphia, PA it would be Alexandria, VA I left the date as 1776.
Suddenly I started hearing someone call to me and it was this lady "Gentility" from Creative Concepts Unltd., Inc.
She is being stitched on 28ct Jobelan called Storm from Under the Sea Fabrics with DMC floss. This is as far as I have gotten with everything else going on.
Her hair is straight stitches of black- Homespun from Lion Brand Yarns. The top knot with the beads will be attached last along with her earrings.
Well off to make more of those little xxs.
