Moonlit Garden...started

Moonlit Garden by Blackbird Designs is the newest cross stitch I have started. I have not touched it today but I am hoping to get to work on it tonight. I did change the color of the shutters...I have a bad habit of changing the pattern to make it my own. Anyways, I looked for a long time for this pattern until I discovered that it is discontinued...i was so
Anyways due to finding it on Ebay I am now stitching it.
I spent the morning working on touch paint at the rental. I think I am done now until the final clean-up. It should not be much longer. Dh was working on water lines today and then the woodwork. I will be happy to see carpet..then I will know we are done.
It has been rather chilly there the last few days and I must say I am ready for some heat...maybe this weekend? I have been wearing a hoodie in the house and my toes have been cold. I do have a new fireplace insert to go in but dh has been so busy with the rental that we have to wait for him to be done...oh do hurry honey.
Tomorrow will be a long day. I am taking my mother to get her teeth pulled and get some new false teeth. It is a 1 1/2 drive and a 1 1/2 appointment and 1 1/2 drive home. But I am taking my stitching and a few magazines to keep me busy. Two of the girls (the ones in the pictures) have colds so they are alittle blue but otherwise all is well. We seem to be busy..and that is good. Be Blessed.

Hi sweetie! That new cross stitch looks grea, it'll be so beautiful when it's done! I hope everything goes well for your mum tomorrow, I'll keep her in my prayers that she'll have no pain and everything will go smoothly. You're a good daughter Dianntha! Hope the girls are feeling better and over their colds soon. Have a lovely WARM day sweetie!
