An Olympic Finish & Progress on the Bathroom Project

Flag City, USA
Designer: La-D-Da
Fabric: 32 ct. Autumn Fields linen
Fibers: GAST

Hooray for the Olympics and Team USA!! I have been enjoying the Olympic games and the stitching time it's afforded me. I put the final stitches in this little complimentary project a few nights ago. What a fun stitch!

The bathroom project continues. It's clear to me that it will not be finished before I return to work next week. That means that I will have to continue doing my contortionist act in the shower in the master bath. The hubby got all the plaster in the damaged areas scraped off, the places of sheetrock and cabinetry that were cut filled up, and is now ready to apply the plaster and paper to the ceiling. Ever wondered what it looks like underneath the plaster? That brown stuff is paper. Not sure why it's there, but something about it building the layers of the plaster.

After 2 coats of VERY smelly sealer, this is what it now looks like. It's ready for the plaster and taping.

It's been slow going because these sealers have to dry for 24 hours before you can do anything else with them. Hubby decided to take today off, so the plaster will be applied tomorrow. Maybe we'll be able to start painting on Sunday??

Hannah is wondering why there's plastic and a ladder in her bathtub!

Great little finish. I have this chart and I need to get it stitched up.

Bonjour Stéphanie,
Je me suis permis de mettre en lien votre blog sur le mien ( car j'ai mis une photo de votre ouvrage que je trouvais bien joli. Nous avons aussi beaucoup de points en commun, j'adore les chats, j'adore le potager et faire des plantations, j'adore comme vous la nature et les animaux, et aussi le potager et les plantations. Quel dommage que nous habitions si loin l'une de l'autre. J'habite en France dans le département de la Mayenne au milieu des champs et votre dont je rêve est bien loin de chez moi. Je vous souhaite une bonne journée. Au plaisir de nos croisades peut-être...
