How do you celebrate New Year's Day????? Popcorn and some beer in the new quilt studio with the cabinets almost all the way installed. This area is going to be for my AccuQuilt Electric cutter but last night it turned into a snack area. I think I may have trouble getting Builder Bob to stay in his man cave.
I don't do well with hidden spaces where you can cram things and....forget about them. I couldn't believe everything I had when I started emptying out cupboards and drawers.
Seriously??? Books and fabric in the upper cupboards??? I guess I haven't opened them in a while.
I have decided I have a serious quilt hoarding problem! I'm not even going to show you the photos of all my fabric. I emptied out my large shelving unit and stacked some of the fabrics in 3 piles along a wall. I thought they were leaning a little but thought they would be okay. Nope, about an hour later I had fabric all over the place. Empty cupboards ready to be taken apart.
Builder Bob hauled all the cabinets downstairs by himself.
He is very ingenious! In order to install the top cabinets without another strong guy....yep, I'm a weakling....he put up a brace board that we could sit the cabinets on and I just had to push on them while he attached them to the wall. He will have to wait for help to bring the counter top down....which should be today.
Popcorn, beer and a movie in my new quilt room! Priceless!
We have decided to put in carpet. We went back and forth on it....we thought about waiting a while and then finally last night we decided to go with it. It will be a low nap jute back carpet and have it installed professionally.
I know I shouldn't be hauling much downstairs and into my room as it will all have to be moved for the carpet but....I couldn't resist setting up my 15-91 Singer and some tables. I even did a little sewing! Builder Bob will build me a big table but I want to wait about a month to make sure what kind of setup I want. In the meantime I will use tables that are easy to move. They have already been move 3 times since last night.
We are now off to buy carpet!
