Rosewood Manor - American Quilt Sampler Update 8

Alas I haven't had much time to cross stitch as we are still in the thick of bathroom renovation.  It looks like it will be completed by this weekend.  Everything that I could do for the renovation has been done.  As of this writing, I am making the faux Roman Shades for the bathroom windows.  I will be glad when those are done, because that type of sewing is not my favorite.  I can do it, but I would much rather being doing something else! 

I am officially at the halfway mark for my piece. It is slow going, as there is so much detail, but at least I can jump around from place to place.  Otherwise, I would go crazy with all the Algerian Eye Stitches.  I wonder if it will be done by Christmas.  Although my family, from Florida arrives at Thanksgiving.  My brother and his wife will be visiting for 3 weeks, and my mom will stay till the end of January.  So, I'm not sure if'll I get alot of stitching time.

Rosewood Manor - American Quilt Sampler - Update 7

Well, after wasting most of the day fooling around with Blogger, I finally figured out that the only way I can update my Blog is to sign on through Google.  Go figure?!  I have been really busy, and although not too busy to cross stitch, just too busy to post.  We decided to renovate our master bathroom, and it has been a project that started it August.  After many problems, with getting a contractor, and problems too many to even list, with The Tile Shop, we finally got the project started.  I acted as the General Contractor, picking out the tile, the cabinets, the granite, the hardware, the lights, faucets, sinks.  I even found the sub-contractor to do the tile, which is the only thing we are not doing ourselves.  But....with that on my plate, I just haven't had the time to post on my blog.  Sorry for the few that follow me, I have been a bad, bad girl!!

Meanwhile here are some of the states, that I have managed to complete since my last post.
