I started laying pavers in our front yard yesterday. My DW doesn't like walking in the grass from the car to the front steps, so we're getting about a dozen pavers that look like cobblestone, each pa

Still working the background. Maybe 1-2 days more left to go. Dinner last night was spaghetti with meat sauce I made, since my mom's arthritis was doing a number on her. Tonight we had pork roast with rice.

I finished the Swedish rug Anna sent me the chart for; starting a different Aubusson.  Supper is chicken thighs in parchment with gingered carrots & beets and succotash.

Mini Aubusson rugs are great fun to stitch, presently I'm working on the flower garlands.  After breakfast we're heading out for flu shots, pneumonia booster and a few groceries.

I took a break from my Pierce over the summer. The other day I finally got uninterrupted time in my room. The first thing I did was clean off my table! Then I critically went over every inch of the house, focusing on first floor, and made a punch list of what needed to be done before I permanently install the 2nd floor. I was dismayed it was so long! A lot of little tasks, but better now when everything is easy to reach rather than after floor is installed. I'm heading up now!

Taking a break from the tapestry as I have to resolve a problem with the borders. Started a new rug. This one will be for a Regency parlor, and I'm using lovely soft mahogany browns, cream, and a light green. It's a Janet Granger pattern I modified from her book, the Italian design. This one should stitch up quick as it is very symmetrical, and it's only a few colors. Dinner last night was roast chicken and rice.

Making great progress on the rug. Have outlined the design areas, but am already running low on one of the colors. May have to order more floss. Dinner last night was leftover Italian sausage and spaghetti. Dinner tonight should be leftover chicken made into a pot pie.
