Yes, I'm afraid And They Sinned got put away for now -- once again I got daunted by the part I was working on and decided not to work on it. Poor thing. I know I will get back to it though.
So instead, I pulled out poor Sarah Elizabeth Brooke (The Scarlett House). Finished all that darned grass. And now I'm in the throes of lots of brickwork. Sigh.
I need a good audiobook to keep me going.
My red floss for the bricks doesn't seem to have as much variegation as Tanya's did. But that's ok. Oh, and btw, if you go to that link, you will see a small correction to the chart for Sarah.
I hope Tanya doesn't mind. I really want to show how pretty this piece is. This is from Tanya's (The Scarlett House) blog.
I will get there someday!
Come the middle of the week, we will be cold and full of awful jackhammering noises in the house. Yes, we are putting a French drain system in the basement. Which means jackhammering, possible dust -- but hopefully the dust will stay down in the basement -- and cold (since we can't use the heat while the jackhammering is going on). I'm so not looking forward to the work, or the expense. But I am definitely looking forward to no more basement flooding. Wish us luck!
Here is a pic of Mia. She has definitely discovered the advantages of down coats. :D
This time, she went for the boy child's coat. (Kim, recognize the quilt? Yes, it's the one I got from you!)
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi! I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
