Could not wait

until I search forever to find an online shop that would have the new sampler labels.  Nicola was so sweet to post videos of Nashville giving us a glimpse of the goodies.  Well, there they were from Needle Work Press.  Tiny 2" sticky labels of samplers.  Where will I find them?  And do you think if I would that they would have any left?  Raise your hand if you think I have the patience to wait.  I have no idea what I would use them on since my friends have no interest in stitchery.  But I wanted a few.  I'm not doing boxes but I have a LOT of journals that were to be labeled so I did not remove my printing files.  Several were already sized for squares from the 3 set measures I was selling so what the heck? 
 
So now I have a few and that's probably all I would need.  If and until I locate them, these will suffice.  NWP sweet spiral notebooks were not offered by any online shop I checked the past years, so I made those for myself too.  Now I have too many!  I see from the video that they are still available for shops.  NWP has really nice offerings don't they?
 
 
My old printer only jammed once which was a good thing because I only had two sheets to use.
 
 
 
Mark made a face I had not seen in quite some time after I announced that the new windows will be painted.  The dark bronze is a reddish brown and that never sits well with me.  I want it all one color, flat, no shine, and there is no way I will try to match the vast siding to a small outline of glass.  They will be painted to match the siding.  We are using solid stain on the weathered cedar and the color sample books have 1/2" x 1/2" swatches.  Are you kidding me?  You get a 4" swatch for an interior wall and a 1/2" piece for something as large as a house.  Any color can be mixed (which never comes out as expected) but I wanted to use their formulated colors. 
 
We finished the legs on the dishwasher and the siding contractor said he will help with the crown moulding.  I don't want the typical (of course) so that needs to be drawn up soon.  In case you aren't tired of the damn dishwasher, here it is completed with the leg skirt.
 
 Now I'm done.
 
Hope your weekend went well.
Thanks for visiting.
 
Before touching her...... and after.

All your renovations look great. Crown molding will be the "crowning" touch to the rooms😊😉

She's a lovely puss cat but obviously a bit on the prickly side:-)

Love your kitchen cabinets and color.
Missy is such a pretty kitty, too bad she has such an ugly disposition.
Have a great week ahead.

Cats are so expressive and she is definitely 'expressing' in the second photo!

Those stickers are cute...but since I'm not really stitching these days...just knitting...I'm passing. The before and after shots are a hoot!!

You are really making great progress on your home renovations, Marly! The dishawasher with the skirt looks fabulous. Hope the window painting works out--will you do it yourselves?

Marley, I know the NWP stickers are available at Spring Green Country Sampler in Wisconsin. They do have a website and you can order online or call. It is a delightful store and you will love the offerings.

Our husbands should know that we want what we want, and that's the end of it! I know it will be sad to lose the weathered look. I hope you can find a paint color that makes you smile every time you look at it. The dishwasher 'skirt' is perfect! Good job! Hugs!
