Travelling Patterns x 3 and Bathroom Reno complete

This is a prime case of the old adage "It never rains but it pours".
I have been the recipient of three travelling patterns in the past couple of weeks.

#1 is completed.

Name is drawn - Caitlin at mangogirl and it is out in the mail.

#2 Count Your Blessings.

Threads pulled and stitches being made. Please leave your name on this post and I will draw a name on May 31st  to send it out. Please indicate in your comment that you want to be in the draw for the travelling pattern. You MUST have an active blog to enter this one!
 AND THE WINNER IS ------- Ariadne!!!!! It will go out in the mail the first of the week.

#3
 I will post in a week to give #2 time to go out in the mail.

And here finally is our completed bathroom renovation.

The original 1970's bathroom with no shower



New bathtub enclosure

New plumbing  and a shower head!

New floor

New hiboy tiolet

New granite countertop and vanity

New mirror and check out the faucet

New lighting
The New Orleans Mardi Gras Poster that inspired the accent colors

My Claude Theberge prints that work with the color scheme.

The entire room



And every girl needs a rubber ducky. This started with one Halloween ducky in a giveaway from my friend Annette and just grew lol.
The new shower unit and the floor were professionally installed. My DH and I did the rest. I installed the taps and now I can add that to my resume LOL.

Until next time, may all your frogs stay in their pond LOL.

ROFLMAO you too? Isn't it funny how that happens? Cool, I started the Count Your Blessings one (if it's the same, that is) and I'm glad you got to stitch it.

I'm loving that bathroom, esp the bight, cheerful green. Great job!

The bathroom looks great. I especially like the ducks! Please include me in the drawing for the traveling pattern. I've been following it from the US to England and back to Canada and getting inspired by all the different threads people have used to stitch it.
