Since taking the whole cloth out of the frame to view progress… I have had barely a day go by that I haven’t worked on it this week … lol!
Here it is back into the pvc frame… I could put it in my big Hinterberg frame but this is easier to manage and move about too! I had to reimagine that flower as all the blue lines over the years had disappeared but otherwise I just needed to darken some up for stitching.
In just a few days I had all these lines added in and completed down to the extended diamonds where I add the circle buttons in colors.
Then I started adding color….
And this is where I am TODAY!!!
I changed my nail polish this week too… Back to my honey’s fave… Glamsterdam by ColorStreet….
But in even more exciting news… I finally hog tied myself to finish that cushion for our front porch rockers!
And to see them both on there together….
Y’all! I am sew happy this is a done checkmark in my book… ready for company or us or neighbors who like to drop by! YAY!!!!
Linking all this handwork *yes there is plenty of hand work in those cushions too* to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching crew HERE <<<< Come see what all everyone is linking up!
Look how beautiful our begonia is blooming and looking …. I am enjoying this plant way more than expected!!!!
And here is our cabin from the gravel road out front…
And easier to make it out once we pulled in the driveway and caught this shot…
I love our little cabin in the woods…. and I love our screened in porch too! That is where we spend lots of time. Rick has been working on the double doors that lead out to the back porch as the cabin is almost 20 years old and it is time for maintenance that hasn’t been done as the house settled so he took the doors off cleaned them meticulously and rehung them (they never even used a shim to set them prior) properly! Then he painted the outside of the doors our trim color….
This week he will work on the screen doors and get them back on with black hardware and also hang them more properly too…. once painted the same tan color as the exterior doors are 🙂
See the ramp above he built me so I can access this beautiful back porch and nature so easy now with my knee issues! I love it ❤
Speaking of my knee issues… we both continue to lose weight and are remaining keto and low carb happy. You can see some of that weight loss in my new profile picture I added to this blog today 🙂
I will leave you all with this…. as someone needs to hear this as I did in the past and try to remember today too….
