Jane Woodward Sampler - Week 3

This has been just clicking along this week, considering how much time I didn't really stitch this week!

I finished the last Algerion Eye Stitch today, so the rest is all cross stitch. 

There's another line of numbers, plus Jane's name.  Couple lines of a verse, then the motifs. Then I'm finished!

So I mentioned in previous  posts that my daughter is officially out on her own.  So I decided it was time to go in there and clean her room.  First to figure out the random stains on her carpet, so I could pretreat those, before cleaning the carpet.

I couldn't resist teasing my daughter a bit after ascertaining the carpet stains.  Told her I was getting her room ready for the boarder we were taking in. To ensure she couldn't come back!  She finally figured out I was joking.

It's amazing when you go in to clean a room. You start out with I'm just cleaning the carpet. The next thing you know, I'm up there with a bucket, a sponge, and spicy and span and wiping down the walls and woodwork.  Oh, and those blinds are sorta gross!  They need a bath. Now that I think about it, I don't think those curtains have been washed since we hung them up. 

And the ceiling fan, probably need to take tge blades off and give them a coat is white spray paint.  Those glass globes?! I don't think they're gray.  Let's put them in the dishwasher!

Hopefully the next time my daughter comes home for a visit her room will be all sparkling clean.  But I still have to clean that Jack and Jill bathroom. Poor Holly and Dixie must wait another week for baths!

The downstairs bathroom project is at a stand still till the hubby gets in there to do his thing(s). He does plumbing and electrical.  I'm strictly painting and cleaning!  I finally got the mirror frame ordered and will have to paint that when it arrives.  But I'm sure it will be all finished before my mom returns from Illinois on Oct. 8!  Well I hope it is!

Well that's bout it for this week so I'm going to sign off and go back to stitching and off to bed early!  Happy stitching!


  1. Pam, you are moving along very well with Jane. I bet Holly and Dixie don't mind waiting for their baths. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Probably not! Dixie could use a hair cut too!
