A Little Bit of This & That
I can’t believe how long it has been since I wrote a blog post! Sorry everyone, I know I received several emails from people worried about us. I think I just got in a little funk. I don’t handle change very well as I get older.
Bob and I both have been doing a lot of groaning and dealing with new aches and pains….all we talk about now is NEVER doing a remodel again.
Hopefully by time we start on my quilt studio we’ll have forgotten how much this remodel took out of us!
It isn’t often that we get our picture taken together so I thought I would share this photo taken at our granddaughter’s wedding. Normally we are in work clothes and my hair is pulled back in a pony tail. As Bob would say…..we are quite the hotties!
New House Update
We have been doing a lot of shopping, we bought all new light fixtures and we are also going to have a master closet with shelves and drawers.
Thank goodness Bob is good at putting stuff like this together! We also bought four new doors that he’ll have to install.
At the moment the flooring is being put down and will be finished next week. Our shower has been tiled and someone will be up next week to measure for our shower door. It will be custom made which will take a couple of weeks.
We still haven’t found a vanity we like for our master bathroom, the big color right now is grey. The search will continue next week.
There was a mistake at first and the flooring wasn’t laid in a staggered pattern so it had to be pulled up. I guess it was pretty ugly. I haven’t seen it yet but Bob says the floor is now beautiful.
The kitchen counter tops and sink were held up as the guy who installs the under counter sink was sick but hopefully it will be put in next week also. We’re getting close!
Remember all of the quilt photos I have taken in the past using the bell in front for a prop…..the bell fell off but I can see that it is below the wall in the water. It might be time to just remove it.
Mr. Mickey & Sadie
Yes, she will still growl and snip at him once in awhile but she has figured out that if she watches him, she knows when someone is at the door (she is deaf).
Notice my Accuquilt Musical pillows? Mr. Mickey has decided they are his. He usually sits on the flatter one while on the couch.
She is approximately 13 and we recently found out she has a heart murmur. We are thankful everyday that we had such precious dogs.
Here is my ironing board sitting on our kitchen table, guess we’ll have to eat out!
4th of July
It is hard to believe that June is almost over! Here is a neat star batik tablerunner that would look great on your picnic table for the 4th of July. I used my Spinning star block tutorial to easily make 3 blocks for the tablerunner.
Maybe I’ll have to start doing an update post every Sunday to let you know what is going on in our lives, what do you think of this?
Enjoy your week and hopefully you’ll get more quilting don than I will!
