And This Little Pig said Crazy Finish No 15

Yes finished my Crazy January 2011 Challenge, my last piece LHN Ornaments 2010 Under the Tree. Now all that is left is to 'finish-finish' my 12 ornaments, in time to hang on the tree :@ I've add up all my finishes for the year, 19 in all!
I have my baby sister staying with me at the moment, she has a job driving a truck in the mines, anyway what has this to do with a photo of the Long Dogs and Meah's shadow, well we have decided to it is time to renovate, well more up date the decor of my little house. Don't you love the way the Long Dogs are all laying so that they are touching, and the fact that Podge managed to collect one of my cleaning gloves.
Enjoying the morning sun, with the curtains down at the moment.
This is the main reason for the update, as the paint man at Bunnings (think Home Depot) called it... Caravan Cladding... I call it 'that fake pine brown stuff' except I didn't say stuff :@ I have lived with this for over 15 years, if it had been the lighter colour it might not have been so bad... not it still would have been bad.

Anyway the Bunnings man (our new Uncle Leon) gave us this brilliant paint called Zisser it will apparently adhere to the Caravan Cladding in a one coat undercoat. So last weekend was spend sanding back the window trims and cleaning up all the dust. We have to finish washing down the walls, undercoat, then decide on colours, but more of that later. I will be sure to involve you all with my/our decisions.

As for stitching, I still have to decide if I am going to do the Crazy January Challenge 2012, thinking really hard about it, but for the time being I get to work on my LHN Family Sampler, something I really want to finish.

Seeya tomorrow with Cow-Day-Wednesday... LiBBiE in Oz
