Blue and White Cross Stitch and some creating at Kainga."
Surprise surprise I have started another cross stitch. This one is from the book called Cross-Stitch Samplers by Marjorie Massey.
I am using DMC 312 to stitch this, just started the second skein of thread.
On the weekend we put up this old door that my Mum had and she didn't want. This door is very very old. We had to pull some nails out of it as we had to do a bit of re-constructive surgery down the bottom and we found that the nails were made by hand. The door knob is a insulator thing that are on the electricity poles. We found this in the load of wood we purchased recently. Just perfect for the door knob as it came with the screw already for us to put on.
This is the other side, so much character on this door.
Bonnie made this stool at school many years ago in Woodwork class. It has been in the shed not being used. So yesterday I got to it with a coat of "Gilly Stephenson's dark restoring and new timber polish. It now matches in perfectly with our other furniture. It was plain pine before.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the week, can't believe it will soon be May.
