Isnt this going to be so much fun!!!! I cant wait to see this done.
I spent ALL day trying to put things away in my sewing room. OMG who let me buy all that crap I have? Everytime I think ok I cant squeeze in another thing some one finds ANOTHER box. They arent small either! I had no clue how much stuff I had because it was in two different rooms. Big rooms at that.So tomorrow I will be trying to squeeze yet more in!
I will say this. I have found every possible way to fold and stash there is. I had 8 4 drawer rubbermaid dressers that I had to condense down to 3. Thank the heavens above I have all those wall shelves.
The kitten (rae rae)has melded quite quickly into this family. I still think she was a plant by someone with a bad sense of humor, but I have become attached. I hate it when that happens. She also has made it her mission to get the hell cat to like her. Chai has softened a tiny bit and will atleast stay in the same room for a short time but she makes sure everyone knows she is not happy.Lol.

My blog is doing very weird things these days. I do have help on the way but in the meantime its still messed up. It wont even let me see what pictures I have uploaded. All I can see is the code. SO I have no clue which one uploaded first. Its not like I remember which order I loaded them. Lol
So here is Kays step 1 and Beatrices step 5!! Soon we will get to see some completed tops!!!!
I am also SO SO clost to being in my quilt room! Today I hauled boxes and put things away.I had to figure out how to condense 8 dressers of fabric down to 3. I never Realized how much room I had before with Gracie house and my quilt studio... Now its all one room and just not big enough! I tried talking WH out of the pool room but he just laughed at me. How rude! Ü

We still are running around trying to make the bank happy. Not an easy task.Lol. We have started ALL the renovations though. My Glenn is here and walls have been coming down, panelling,wallpaper, and carpet have been ripped out and walls are being painted! Ahhhhhh the sounds of home.Ü
The next pictures you see will be of my laundry room. The before is quite frightening.Its looking SO good now though. The push is on as Sears will be delivering my washer and dryer on Sat. My beautiful 4.2 LG washer.The dryer I went cheap on as I love to hang dry so I dont even care about it.
Today I tore all the trim out of my sewing room.It will soon be replaced with real wood trim.I also painted and ripped out ALL the pink carpet. It will be one of the next finished rooms you will see.Ü. Thats kind of my hold up with sewing and quilting.Anything I want to do has to be done on a card table. Not for long though.
All of our stuff is here but its all either still in the trailor or in the garage. With a torn up house there is no where to put it! Tomorrow though I am finding my Jura!

Today was a very yucky day. Oh sure it was 90 degrees and gorgeous out BUT...........I woke up to a sick skater boy. We will now call him up chuck boy. So since my washing machine has NOT been delivered yet I had to load all his sweet smelling clothing and blankets into my beautiful Killian and drive to the laundymat.Yeah..... I didnt go to my usual one because its not too close. I hit the closest one to me! The bad thing is that it is twice the price! Theivery I tell ya. 40$ dollars later I was back on the road. Now thoug I get to hang all those wet clothes on the line.
Fast forward a couple hours to worker girl getting home I am sunburnt and cranky. I sit down in my chair to drink some ice cold water and I hear "MOM!!!!!! WE HAVE A FLOOD!" Oh yeah.... This pipe thingy that should of been a curve wasnt and it didnt like it because it broke! I am trying to calmly locate the shut off valve while standing in atleast 2 inches of water while worker girl is panicking. Since I cant find the shut off valve and am starting to have nightmares of swimming in my basement I had her call a friend. Bless his little pea pickin heart. He RAN right over. He did find the shut off valve (although it was not easy even for him! But I now know where it is!)and we started mopping.
Being that ALL my worldly possesions are in a trailer winging its way to me from Alaska I have no shop vac and just a crappy mop. But I can happily say that at 9:30 I am finally sitting down with that glass of water.Lol..... My life is never boring!
I did want to show you what I bought myself! My good friend Taryn has this AWESOME ETSY shop where she sells these basket purses. I fell in love with the wizard of oz basket last month when she posted it and knew I needed it! It has the BEST details! The inside is even lined with a blue checkered material just like dorothys dress. This picture just does not do the basket justice! She even has the cutest sleeper bag for it. THANK YOU TARYN! For not selling this bag before I could get it and for offereing to make one if it did sell! I LOVE my basket! Yall should go check her out and show her some love.Ü
