It started snowing around 4 ish and hasn't stopped yet. The weather lady said it isn't supposed to stop until Monday afternoon! I won't be able to leave the house for a week! She said 10-15 inches. Just yesterday she said, "I have good news, it looks like we will just get a few flurries." Well I would like to know what happened overnight! Santa Clause must have told the weather lady that it wasn't nice to tell fibs so she decided to tell the whole east coast that they were in deep doodoo (aka snow) haha. I was supposed to go shopping tomorrow but I guess that will have to be postponed, more stitching will get done. Win win situation. :)
I'm going to eat a snack and go to bed, maybe read some of my book. Hopefully I will get up early. Maybe I will open my closed in porch up tomorrow to get some heat in there and cross stitch and watch the snow.
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, stay safe and dry!

I have also been working on Country Cottage, Summer Seascapes series. I just finished Chart four and I am waiting for the last chart to come out so it will be completed. The picture below is of the fourth chart.
As most people know our house has been under construction. At the beggining of this week Jon and my dad and his crew started on the roof which is a huge project! First off, there was thre layers of shingles and then cedar shakes. So all of that had to come off then they had to put ply wood on it. Also, we are getting an A frame on the addition side of our house so this is just a huge mess! The side that doesn't have the addition is done! So that side has been cleaned up but the other side is a different story, it looks like our roof threw up all over our yard. But hopefully (finger's crosses) it will be done by Monday. I have high hopes! :)
Tata for now!

As everyone knows I have re-modeled my bathroom. I bought this awesome shower curtain but couldn't find a curtain for the window to match it so I decided to make a valence. I went and bought another shower curtain and cut it to make it. Isn't it cute!? I have never made one before but I think it came out great.
I have also finished the third chart on the Country Cottage Seascape series. Only two parts left! (They haven't came out yet) When I took this picture I realized that I left out the stars on the top of chart three but I will add them when I get the next chart. I am moving on to another WIP because for the past couple of days I have un-stitched on this chart more then I have stitched.
Maybe I will work on my Quaker Diamonds. I really need to work on my class piece but its almost done so I keep putting it off. Geeeesh... I have talked myself into working on my class piece. Off I go....

This past weekend was the annual May Retreat at Salty Yarns in Ocean City MD. I decided to work there instead of attend the retreat so I worked Saturday and Sunday cutting fabric. I really enjoy cutting fabric and working in the shop. I would rather quit my job and just work at Salty Yarns every day, even though my stash would end up filling my whole house to the ceilings.
On the stitching front, I haven't got much done because of work and the bathroom remodeling project but here is some update photos...
This my quilt. It only needs a small brown boarder around the edges and a bigger boarder after that. So it is almost completly done.Here is Quaker diamonds. I haven't worked much on this piece.
Here is my class piece, not much progress but it is getting there.Here is the Country Cottage new series. The third piece came out and I am behind! This is what I plan to work on tonight.Stitch and Bitch is tomorrow night and I plan on taking picture and getting a lot of stitching done so I will be back in a couple of days with pictures of that and of the bathroom. (It was finally finished today) I only need a curtain for the window!! Of all the things to forget, I forgot the first thing you see when u walk in uhg!
I want to wish everyone a belated Mother's Day!

I have also worked a little bit on my class piece.
And last night I couldn't contain myself anymore I had to start Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor. Today my objective is to work on my Lauren Sauer class piece but I get a little side tracked so I might wonder to the diamonds ( they are a girls best friend) :)
Tata for now
I made two posts today so please read the one below as well! :)
The bathroom used to have these plastic blue tiles on the wall (in the picture). Some would fall off every couple of weeks. It was rediculous.
We dry walled the walls after we insulated them (yes this is an old! house and they didn't have insulation!) and we decided to put real tile around the tub and on the floor. I love the tile work that my dad did! There isn't grout in the tiles on the floor yet because the glue is still drying but there is grout on the tub tiles. The color of the grout is darker we haven't cleaned the white dust off yet because we cant walk on the floor yet.
Anyway I have been stitching and quilting too so I am going to post that seperate because I have so many pictures.
