More Photos

As promised, here is an updated photo of the Ozark Sampler SAL. I was up at 4am this morning stitching letters R-V, and went back to bed at 6am. I still don't think I like this and I have no idea what I'm going to do with it once it's finished. Wonder who I can fob it off on to. LOL.
I took part in a needleroll exchange recently on the Tranquil Stitches message board, and this is the one I received from Katrina (I think it was Katrina - although it could have been Christina, and without going on the board to look I'm not entirely certain now. Aren't I terrible, LOL) in the US. It's gorgeous and it's going to go in my basket on the landing.
And here's Mollie...thinking she's going to bring that stick into the house, yet again. She's a sly little bugger cos I sit with my back to the door so she sneaks it in and then lies under Craig's feet chewing it. She looks like butter wouldn't melt, doesn't she?
I've been painting today. Mick is decorating his sitting room and I volunteered to go down and help him and Ian. We did the fireplace wall today before both our backs gave out. Tomorrow we're going to do the two shortest walls, and on Thursday the long wall behind the settee. Neither of us wants to make our bad backs any worse, so we're just taking our time. He doesn't want the ceiling doing, and Ian has been doing the glossing - skirtings and door frames. I think I'll probably do the doors - I've seen how rubbish Mick and Ian are at doing doors. LOL.
