I'm so pleased you all were impressed with the Mr's stitching. I've chosen a wonderful frame for it and am just trying to decide on whether to mat it or not. I'll share when it's finished.
Some of you might remember a few years back when I had my Achilles Tendon surgery. To keep me entertained Dan remodeled the kitchen while I was convalesing. Every day I would make my way downstairs and find that he had worked on one thing or another. It was almost like Christmas!
Dan did not disappoint this time either! It all started with the fireplace. We had a lovely orangey oak surround that neither of us liked and since I had nothing but time to think about things, and the sofa faces the fireplace, it became the pea underneath my mattress until finally I couldn't take it and I begged him to do something. We put our heads together and decided to paint it the same color as the kitchen cabinets but keep the mantle itself stained, just darker. It took him the entire 3 day 4th of July weekend but he got it finished and we both were thrilled with how it turned out.

|se corner. we removed the top of the entertainment center|
|new laminate floor|
I think we're done doing any further remodeling since it seems like the only time we do it is when I have surgery and quite frankly I don't want to have any more! I'm sure you can understand that!
Dan has started a new small project that he intends as a gift for Christmas so I will share that with you next time and will also share some pin pillows I had stitched before things with my neck happened.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the remodel!
Take care till next time!
