I'm sorry I know this is a quilting blog but I just have to rant, whine, cry about my dismantled kitchen. We started the prep for a new floor in the kitchen on Monday. How does a new floor snowball into a kitchen being gutted almost 90%....well, let me tell you....if you want to skip this whine then move down to see the quilty pictures. Our house is almost 100 years old and seems the problems are endless. In the process off removing the floor it was discovered the floor under the dishwasher is rotted and thus traveled up the wall, which is also rotted.....what more could happen, part of the framing was rotted as well. Now we need new dry wall, new plumbing and new lower cabinets (or at least the backs need to be replaced) A 2 man 2 1/2 day job has turned into a 4 man 4 day job or more.....and we aren't finished yet....I could just cry, this picture is where my sink and counter once was. After these guys preform their miracle work we'll still need to have the flooring installed, I'm hoping that will be early next week. The original plan was to install a new floor and new counter tops. I can't even think that far ahead right now with the entire floor open to the beams, I can even see right thought to the furnace room in the basement, I don't even want to talk to the guys doing the work anymore....they might have more bad news, don't get me wrong, the guys are doing a fantastic job and making sure everything is done right, we are lucky to have such a good crew.
Right before all the chaos (kitchen reno) started I sewed this batik quilt for Maureen (shop owner). It still needs a black border and then a small border using one of the fabrics in the quilt. Lula is giving her sniff of approval. I've left this for Maureen to finish, I hope see likes it and finishes it.
My first block of Hocuspocusville is stitched, only 11 more to go. Look Donna I found it! (this block was missing for a few days)
This little stitchery was to try out the brown varigated thread.
I hope you have less chaos in your part of the world and keep your fingers crossed my kitchen will be functioning again by the weekend.
