Progress Is A Good Thing

Good morning sweet friends.
Are any of you waking up hating the fact that you lost an hour?
This daylight savings time is going to kick me in the butt
tomorrow morning when I have to get up.

I managed to get 13 pennies completed for my rug.
This is the center of the design.
I am going to work my way out.
This is going to take me longer than expected,
because the next 4 weekends I will not be home.

Bob is making his own progress on our bedroom.

We now have drywall.

The door has been hung.
We found two pieces of old reclaimed moulding.
One to go over our new closet door 
with the other over the main door that goes into the room.
Bob also completed the little door under the shelves.
He added old reclaimed hinges and a porcelain door knob.

Once Bob is finished sanding,
we are ready for paint.

On another note,
hubby Bob now has to have hernia surgery
on April 14th.
He scheduled this after our shows,
but will not be able to lift more than 20 lbs afterward for 6 weeks.
Another set back, but he needs to get this taken care of.

A litlle bit of progress is a 

Daylight Savings Blessings To All
