Progress on Two Fronts

FH and I were preparing for more snow (possibly another 18" by Wednesday) so I didn't get as much done on the Porch as I had planned. However the interior is almost done. I still need to paint the interior door and window trim, install it, and paint/install some baseboard on the window wall. I'm only bothering with those details because their absence could be seen if someone looks in the windows.

As far as the exterior goes, I've put down a coat of grey paint and gathered materials to build a stone and slate porch. I still need to figure out what I want to do for porch railing. I also need to build a set of steps up to the porch and finish the step up to the door.

The other bit of progress is on Aunt Rose's cross stitch. I'm heading back to work on it some more now.
There should be more progress on both pieces while the snow flies during the week.

I'm enjoying watching your progress on this porch. I love all the choices you've made. You're doing a great job! I love seeing your needle work too. I love to do cross stitch but I'm so slow at it!
