Where it's at ...!

I'm knee deep into plaster dust and debris! That's where it's at! And ... if that wasn't enough, I'm not feeling so hot. But, I'll get over it!

Due to a clandestine water leak that took way too long for us to notice (like my plywood floor?), we are renovating the main bathroom, which consists of  120+ year old plaster and not as old sheet rock and perhaps as old plumbing and electrical. 

Naked brick wall!

Men at work! My father (left) and favourite brother (on the right) came down to do some important stuff!

And ... with the bathroom walls having been opened, Pumpkin gets a new (much needed) outlet in her room. Don't mind the dusty mess! 

Menning the toilet! Lol It saves us from having to go downstairs in the middle of the night!

My new state of the art bathroom door!

Where it's at! Walls are closed with new electrical wiring, heating registers and plumbing!

My brother and father left on Monday after a long weekend of hard and messy work (So thankful to have them).  I spent a good part of the day cleaning the house. How exciting! 

So, where are you at? 

Thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!

I'm on a roll baby ...!

For the most part, I have remained focused, with a few squirrel in between the completion of UFO projects. For instance ....

Squirrel number 1 Frivol 5 - Atelier by Friend General

I really like this little quilt. It is one of my favourite. What I like about these tins is that I get to work with the whole fabric line for a small investment. Some Frivols require extra fabrics (background and or borders) and others, like this one, nada! Binding and backing are not included.

This little quilt looks even better as a display at Fibre Junction.

I am such a push-over for those tins! Pretty soon I'll be Tin Queen! Or should that bee Queen Tin?! lol

So what have you been up to?

Thanks for stopping by! Catch you later!

Weather you like it or not ....!

I don't know where you live, but it sure has been a crazy winter weather wise in my part of the way northeast NY.  Yesterday evening we had a combination of snow, sleet pushed around by winds.  The humidity and wind made it much cooler than it actually was.

Brrr! It was a great time to sit with a quilt on my lap and hand stitch the binding while enjoying a warm cuppa, ok glass of hot tea!

Finished machine quilting the above quilt on Monday. I do enjoy hand sewing the binding on. Although it is time consuming, I find it so relaxing!

I am still attempting to remain focused ..... Let me tell you, it ain't easy for me. I am so all over the place. So many projects needing completion and so many needing to be started .... Squirrel! lol Finished Frivol 2.

Faithful by Minick & Simpson. It uses their recent fabric line Polka Dots & Paisley. I just love how it turned out!

On a side note, my new smaller quilt rack is up on the wall.  The new smaller size is perfect for these quilts, don't you think?

Compared to how they looked on the larger rack!

Much better don't you think? Now I need to look for quilts for the larger rack! It will be a pleasure! 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Catch you later! Cheers!
