I'm going to paint a step stool for Claire for either Christmas or her birthday depending on it I get it done.  Here is what I am starting with:

Here is my inspiration:

So to start, I must seal the wood and paint it Ivory color.  Then I can get creative.

I worked on the Barbara Jackson ornament.  I wanted to get to the dog.  He's so cute and just a few stitches.  You can't really see him in this photo, he is just to the right of the lady.

I did part of the squirrel but the tail is a special stitch of some kind and we haven't gotten that lesson yet.

The prune bread is delicious.  I'm going to freeze a hunk of it for Christmas.


  1. Claire will love her step stool. What a cool idea.

  2. That's a cute idea for a stool.
    Great progress on your new starts, and the Piano is looking good.
