Construction Zone

I started collecting the Little House Needleworks, Christmas Ornaments. I decided that I wanted to stitch them over one instead of two. I am using thirty count which it calls for, but I have changed some of the colors. I started "Snowy Pines" (below)
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!

An itch to cross stitch.. said...

Lovely stitching, I love the summer series with the two children.
We are renovating our house this year, so I will know exactly what you mean.

Your stitching looks fantastic! It's heck being stuck in the middle of construction, but you'll be glad when it's all over!

Your sea scape is beautiful. Good luck on your construction.
