Not much progress

Not much stitching of any kind has been going on lately.  I've been working from home more often than not and I've been very lazy at night.  That all adds up to little or no stitching.  Below is my progress on my Shepherd's Bush.  I really don't have much left if I would just get to it.  :-)

I have been working on a bit of decorating.  My sister gave me the below cabinet for Christmas and I've had a blast filling it with my American Redware collection.  I've only been collecting for three years and I have 35 pieces (all reproductions).  Here I have about half of it.  The rest are in the kitchen in various places.  Makes me happy.  :-)
I also love botanical prints and have been purchasing a set of a series of prints called the Twelve Months of Flowers by Robert Furber.  They were first published in 1730.  My prints are reproductions of course but are hand tinted.  They are very true to the originals.  I finally had all 12 framed and are all hanging in my bedroom. 
Now I really need to figure out some window treatments other than the wood shades I have up.  It's hard to believe I've been working on my bedroom for three years now.  I also did some more work on my bathroom and now all the plumbing is finished.  I still have to put up the new trim work and a little more painting before I can start to decorate that.  But I am getting closer to being done with both. 
Here is my pretty Isabelle.  I've had her four years now (can't believe how time flies) and she is such a beauty.  She is always with me just like the pugs.  I never knew Labs could be so clingy.  :-)  But I love it.

You have so many fun items to read about and look at. I'm just wrapping up the stitching on the exact same 'fold' piece. Shepherd Bush's pieces are so relaxing to stitch. And I love seeing your pretty Isabelle…she is such a beautiful gal. She has grown up so much …four years has flown by. Happy Stitching and thanks for sharing.

Labs are lovely. Mine follow me or sit perpetually at my feet. Isabelle is gorgeous. I found your blog because of your Cat's Whiskers Chairs. I recently went to a retreat with Janie Hubble, the designer. She's wonderful. Keep on blogging! 😊

Your Shepherds Bush progress looks great. Love the red ware collection.....mine would be reproduction too if I were to collect it. Framed prints look great. Thanks for the info about them. I picked up the July at a junk shop for $4 because it was my birth month. I like that you have all of them and how they are displayed. Cool. Thanks for sharing. Happy thanksgiving.
