IT'S BEEN A WHILE....
Here's our old dirty carpet..we could no longer even clean it!!
And here is the old floor underneath it which was never even waxed, so the floor guys tell us..but then, you've heard all about them, right??? har har....
But..... here is the finished (almost--isn't there always something else??) product. they did do a wonderful job on re-finishing...
A lovely satin finish with our red oak really is shining through here. We can now traverse it in stockinged feet. yay!!
Here is where we have been eating our meals...
All the furniture is in the living room--just enough space to squeeze into the chairs...the buffet contents strewn onto the sofa...but, we can begin to see an end to it!!
On the sewing front:
when I saw "Fun With Barb"'s finished quilt --go and see her gorgeous quilt--I knew that I had to make this one. Mine won't be as huge as hers, perhaps more of a lap quilt--remember, Julierose, you said no more B I G quilts!!
I have no idea how many 9-patches --unfinished 3.5" -- I will need. I have 9 Georgie Porgie blocks cut out and some more 3.5" plain squares and some 9.5 patches too. Isn't it strange how something just "grabs" you and you know you HAVE to make it!!
in the meantime, in between times--my back went OUT after my 4th yoga class..ouchy...and my thumb from bearing my weight at yoga has begun to complain again too...so..this has been a ride I will not take again! So, I guess that i will not be doing anymore yoga--my 71-yr old body has spoken!!
But--was able to drive and go to see Mom this morning..then took to my bed to rest the back! Geeze--I sound 90!!
DH has a gig tonight and has taken on the load of just about everything while I am indisposed! He is such a sweetheart!! ;--)))
Hugs to you all, Julierose, La Blageuse (hurteuse--)
