Good ole Summertime

I am off this summer from my school  nursing job. But I am still working two days in my hair salon, so I have hundreds of plans. I am gathering up things now for a yard sale, trying to do some deep cleaning around my house and working on some crafts. I want to work on some of my Christmas gifts this summer, make some bonnets, prairie dolls and finish a needle punch project I am working on. Plus want to do some fun things with my grandbabies.
   I did want to show you the Uncle Sam cross stitch that I finished. I cannot see to stitch on linen or osanburg, but I am still able to stitch on the 18 count aida cloth, that is as small as I can get.
I am quite please with how it turned out. There is a lady liberty pattern to match, maybe that will be on my bucket list for next year.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
