Autumn's in the air....

For your viewing pleasure...presenting what I do in my spare time...
First off we have some WIP's. This one is the Village of Hawk Run Hollow....not seeing alot of the light of day is it? At this rate I should be able to finish this in about 20 years....

This one is the adorable penquin (can't tell you but if you are a cross stitcher you may know what this is going to eventually be....spying eyes are viewing my blog!!)

Everytime I take a pic of this JCS Owl Halloween ornie,it comes out blurry...maybe it's possessed!!!

This little number is for an Autumn Exchange I'm doing and it's by The Trilogy. I have a cute idea on the finish but shhhhhhh it's a secret!

Another blurry one....but it is the Brittercup Puppy ornie for my son's dog. I changed the colors since he has a chocolate lab. Now I have an ornie for every dog and cat in the house! (wonder if Brittercup makes rabbits and turtles)
Now for the good stuff...this is a picture of my hard working daughter-in-law painting their room in the house but wait.....

She single handedly turned this ugly floor.......

....into this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it gets better....she turned these ugly colored walls......
.......into this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.....and THIS!!!!!

And she bought this for the beginning renovation of my house!!!! (they are lamps...how cool is that!)
Oh, yeah.....did I tell you that THIS is a picture of my son HELPING his wife?????? (um...check under the Transformer blanket!)
No, not really, they have both been working their butts off to make my house a HOME!!! Plus they are going to school full time....doing some internet work for spending money and my daughter-in-law is starting modeling classes on the side! I get tired just talking about it!!! I don't seem to remember having that much energy at 21! We love them both and they are fun to have around. Being they too are newlyweds, we try to give them as much space as possible. I even told them to do whatever they wanted to the house as far as decorating and painting...I think they are doing a good job!!! Thanks so much you two!!! It's really an incredible change....Hey, I've been helping out a little when they let me!
Well, that's about it for now! Getting cool here in the 'burgh...so till next time yinz crazy guys!!!

I want those kids! How about I trade you one huge mastiff, one college student and one daughter who is as wacky as the rest of us?

If that doesn't make the cut, I have a slightly used and abused husband and three cats...

Seriously, the floors are incredible. Give 'em kids a hug for me!

Bliss said...

Ohhh! Cross stitch and renovations. My two favourite things. LOL. I know what your penguins will look like when they are done - simply gorgeous already.

Wow, Lucy, all your WIPs look fantastic! I do love those penguins.
