Mid-Week Update

It's been a while since I posted and I can't really explain where the time has gone. Hubby and I are doing some some renovations/painting around the house so we've spent the last two weekends going to Lowe's, Home Depot, Best Buy and a few others. In the midst of that our kitchen sink is clogged and hubby can't seem to fix it so we hope the plumber can do something when he comes to the house on Friday. The stuff from under the sink is sitting on the floor and I just hate the clutter.

I have managed to get some stitching done and I finished this cute little piece by Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers called Yankee Poodle. I added Part 7 to my Alla Turca by Pelin Tezer and hope to finish Part 8 by the weekend.
I stitched this Prairie Schooler piece (from the 1997 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue) for an exchange and finished it into an ornament and also finished my Glory piece by San-Man Originals which I stitched earlier this month.

Hope you got your problem resolved, and the clutter out of the way. What a drag that is! On the other hand, how sweet is that Yankee Poodle? I had not seen that until now, and it's precious!! You've gotten more done than I would have in your situation. Great job!

Congrats on the finish and finishing. I hope they have your sink fixed by now. I bet the clutter is driving you up the wall.
