Nov. x'mas SAL ornament & other pics.

This was my first finish last January this year and just finished it off into an ornament last weekend. I haven't stitched for a while now but i have a couple of small stitched designs that needed finishing so i am working on them bit by bit in the evening if i am not that sleepy.

Frosty Fun ornament
Prairie Schooler design
JCS 2009
32ct linen naturel
DMC thread


Concrete floor were put in last week wednesday, thursday the workers went somewhere as the concrete have to get dry. Friday they are back and the living room is full in working again as you can see on the picture below.


Late friday afternoon hubby worked on the barn trying to get rid of the old concrete flooring but it is too hard so he gave up and asked for a crane to help with the job.

The crane was provided yesterday and as you can see the barn tottaly removed by the end of the day.

Hereś what was done today, started placing the foundation for the barn which will turn into an extra bedroom. The weather isn't cooperating though, raining on and off amd expected for the coming days.


I've had helped whenever i can especially shoveling out the dirt/debris yesterday and then went to my Zumba lesson(every monday evening) in the evening....i had difficulty getting up this morning. I still feel sore until now, i think i better skip the Zumba dance after a hard days work next time.

I haven't had the time to pick the winners yet, hopefully before the weekend.
Thank you all so much for visiting my blog especially to those who takes the time to leave me a comment. I really appreciate them all.

Bertie said...

Good to see you have time to stitch Mylene lovely ornaments.
The building work looks like very hard work, but am sure the results will be fabulous.

TammyK said...

Looks like there's a lot of work going on at your place.

Love the snowman ornament. How do u sew the beads on? With a half cross stitch?

Joke said...

As you work that hard on your house, you don't need Zumba lessons to stay fit ;) Beautiful stitching, as ever!

Kay said...

My word a lot is getting accomplished at the house, I can see how you would be tired at the end of the day! The ornament is beautiful!

Edit said...

Oh, Mylene. It looks like a lot of work! But pretty sure the result will be beautiful.

I love the little PS ornament, as always :)

mbroider said...

That is a whole lot of work, and you must be stressed out by now...

cant wait to see the 'after' pics!!

Sally said...

Your ornament is so cute!

Your house is going to look fantastic after all that hard work.

Margaret said...

That looks like a lot of hard work but will all be so worth the final result.

Love your PS ornie!!

Stephanie said...

Your snowman is so adorable and the finishing is perfect as usual! Congratulations on another wonderful ornie finish!

That renovation work looks taxing! I think if I helped out, all I'd be able to do is slink off to the tub and then make it to bed! Kudos to you for at least attempting Zumba!

Brigitte said...

Oh my, that's hard work on your house. You all must be so exhausted by the end of the day. But it's great that you find the time to do a little bit of finishing from time to time. That must be a great change from the hard work.

Doris said...

lovely finish Mylene, i hope the rain give you a time, and he work continue without troubles, take care.

Debra said...

Moving right along. Congrats on your finish it is so cute.

Karan said...

An awful lot of work there Mylene but it will be so worth it when it's all finished. You have had so many beautiful finishes - it's been lovely seeing them all & I've thoroughly enjoyed my catch up. :0)

Loraine said...

Hi Mylene! What a ton of work you are doing! Can't wait to see it all done. I love your little fobs too!
Hugs.

Maggie said...

I can't beleive you still have the energy left for stitiching or finishing!
Your PS finish is lovely :-)

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Great stitching and finishing, as usual for you! That really looks like lots of hard work, so I'd think the Zumba class would be lots of stress relief. How about doing the 'light work' on those days?

Katri said...

What a cute ornament!

And thanks for sharing the photos of your renovation progress!

Linda M said...

Have not been on line lately. I love all your beautiful ornaments. You look super busy with all your renovations.

Lovely ornaments - what a lot of work you are having done! I thought it was bad when we had our extension built, but it is nothing compared to yours. It WILL be worth it :)
