Not much stitching - here's why

 And the kitchen guy didn't even get back to me yet.  This was just removing a wall by the fridge so I can have a fridge cabinet built, which creates more drywall dust than a new wall!
Here's the floor.
Yes the table is wearing socks.
Here's the other end showing the new doorway.
You can see how many doors I would have had to repaint, because I wanted a different trim color in the new room. The broom closet is a single door but those other two have two doors each.  Closing it off defined the room, the foyer, and the new door to the garage is the only one I need to paint now.  A simple solution and now I can choose any color I want. 
But I did get some stitching in and will continue to do so, in 95 degree temps with 2,514% humidity, with a hot pack on my neck so I can look down.  Between the flashes, the temps, and the pack, stick a fork in me - I'm cooked.
And finally - meet the newest members of my crew.
Mickey and Sparky.
These two are Skinny Limper's babes.
So darn sweet!
I'm still cleaning up dust and don't know why because more is to come.  Besides, I want Eliza finished by the end of the week so maybe the dust should stay.  My other project is coming up with the final pear. Can you believe half of July is over already?  Honestly, the graph is a complete blank.   My pear has shriveled up like everything else.
 
Thanks for visiting!  Stay safe!!

Pear inspiration will come when peace and order are restored

I know how you feel!The house will be so worth it when it is done! As far as the temps, if it were not for a new Grandchild, I would NEVER!! come to Alabama in the summer!

I really do like your kitchen cupboard color and the door color - is it the same? Almost wish I would have done a neutral rather than Cranberry. But I do love my reds.

I went to the quilt store today to buy backing for my Santas that I've stitched to date. If I start backing them now, they might be ready come December! Ha.

You sure are a busy gal. Sorry about your neck.
Your home will be so nice when it's finished.
Your four legged babies are so cute.. Don't have any of those in my yard but have had most everything else. Just had a big, fat raccoon to visit.
Looking forward to your new pear whenever you get it ready. Thank you ! Charlotte

So much work being done! Wow! The heat and humidity must not be much help. Cute baby deer!! Stay cool. lol!

Bertie said...

Looks good so far Marly and your kitchen will look fabulous!
Yes the heatwave is here too, something we are not used to at all, but like it as long as I can stay indoors!
Keep cool and stitch:))
Have a good week.

Love your pears and can't wait to see your next one. The reno looks great so far.

I still remember the first time we remodeled (we added a second floor, with two bedroom, bathroom, utility room and a huge family room, which was over a huge new master bedroom--plus stairs of course!)and how we had to live in dust and dirt for three months! I can imagine how long it would have taken if we had to hire someone! Hope the kitchen guy returns soon! Hugs!

Sweet William Primitives said...

Marly, just think about how nice your new kitchen will look at Christmas! It will be here before you know it...already the middle of July! Whew! These days are flying by! Will be staying tuned for your progress!

You can get awfully sick of drywall dust. It gets everywhere, even taping off doorways. I'm the last to get any work done, the mister is always working at someone else's house!
I can't wait to see more progress on the sampler.
Hugs,
Susan

Bon courage pour la suite de vos travaux...
A bientôt

Chris said...

Wow! I think the renovations are looking great. It is going to be a wonderful space when finished. Keep cool my friend, don't over do it that heat :)

Jeanne said...

I feel your pain...we took a window out and decided to just patch the sheetrock...dust is everywhere. We'll be taking another window out of the living room soon...more dust to come. Your kitchen is coming along...can't wait to see the final product. Take care

Akila said...

Wow, that's a huge project. But you will be a very happy person once it's completed, and worth every minute you spent on it
Awww the 2 new arrivals are so adorable

Good for you, I love projects, my hubby not so much! It looks great. Dianntha

Primitive Stars said...

Hi Marly, it will get done, love the color of the cupboard door.....Sweet baby fawns,, love how they come in the yard, Francine.

Gayle said...

LOVE that table with the socks on - I covet one just like it! LOL

Barbara Shores ~ Village Folk Art said...

Ohhhh, you really made me chuckle. Wished I could shrivel up instead of filling out.
Yaaa, another pear!
Your home will be beautiful ... I love it all. The outside area is to die for, especially those babys. I find it amazing to know you will have Eliza done by the end of this week. It would take me half a year.

Much Peace,
Barb

Judy said...

Shirlee said...

So love the pics of the fawns : ) Your home is going to look lovely when it's done. Soon you will be relaxing, looking at it all & smiling.

Anne said...

I love the sock look on that table. So funny! Your home will be amazing once completed. Hang in there! Don't overcook yourself! Love the little fawns!!
