I am still here!

Jack and I have managed a bit of sewing. I put together a row of my next afghan just to see what it will look like. now I need to do some more squares to do the next row.
Here is the Ruth project. I am working on the dark blue silhouette of the man and some of the clouds too.
Here is Jack's snowfolks! Not a whole lot of cross stitching left for him to do! He has some specialty things to do when all the stitching is finished.
Now, I wanted to share the colors we are painting the walls. Caramel for the kitchen and living room walls.
A nice green called guacamole for the hall and our bedroom.
And a soft yellow for the laundry room, kitchen cabinets and the computer/hobby room. Eventually we will paint the wood trim a nice crisp white. That will be nice I think.
We also took time Friday since I was feeling very brave, to go down to Springfield and hours drive away. We visited some friends at the pharmacy they own. Katie got lots of loving and plenty of biscuits too. then we went to a place called Andy's. They serve frozen custard and we got our favorite which is called a snowmonster. It is vanilla custard with lots of strawberries and some chocolate swirled through. Yumm!!!! Then on to petsmart for Katie shampoo. She even picked out her own toy but more about that on Thursday! So God bless all until next time!

Eeew. painting. I HATE painting! My shoulders ache just thinking about it! However, it's going to look so nice when it's all done. Make sure you show us the rooms when they're finished!

I love Jack's snow people!

And how do you connect your granny squares? Do you crochet them together or sew them or whip stitch them or what?

I like your new paint colors. There's just nothing quite like the lift that new paint can give a room.
