What a couple of months it has been. I wanted to thank you for you who said a prayer or thoughts for my nephew, Garret. He had his second brain surgery on Thursday, Feb. 6th. They were able to get 97 percent of it. It is still cancer so there is a lot of other stuff going on and hard decisions to make. So thank you very much for those prayers.
I wanted to share our kitchen. We had painters come in to do the kitchen. I am so glad we did. They are so much better than I think I would be, it was and is such a huge job.
The color we picked is called Alabaster. the kitchen should be all back together by Wednesday. I will show you then the after pictures. Next week Ron is going to take out the carpet and start putting in wood floors. It is going to be so pretty. I wonder why we just didn't do this sooner.
I will take more pictures of the upstairs bathroom we redid last weekend. Its really pretty too. I will be up there tomorrow. The light isn't really bright up there this time of day.
I have packed most of my rug hooking stuff away. That hurts let me tell you. I have kept out this one project to work on for now. I have really enjoyed the days when I get to stitch a bit. This is my project from Stacy Nash. Its called Miss Baxter's House.
I love the colors I used. I wanted darker reds than the pattern called for. I hope that when we move I can have a place for just samplers. I plan on having a room with just all of my sewing things together.
Its all bittersweet right now. I am thankful though for the the continued strength that only the Lord can give.
Have a wonderful week.
