Ceiling medallions, cross-stitch, canvaswork

Still no painting on the house as repairs and the like continue. Almost ready to paint, though. Well, the walls. I did get a ceiling medallion painted to match the previous faux-patina canopy for the patina chandelier: Probably more convincing from a distance, but hey, once it’s on the ceiling behind the chandelier, it’ll be… Continue reading Ceiling medallions, cross-stitch, canvaswork

Crazy quilt bags, cross-stitch, crewel… oh, and a house

So, I guess the big news of the last couple days is I have an accepted offer on a house. woo hoo!!! Anyway, if all goes well, subject removal is November 7, and I’ll get possession in early December.
