Kitchen Progress and a Little Sewing

Last week we had the counter tops installed, with two strong guys the granite went it. They had to do some grinding of the granite to get it to fit the uneven walls and cabinets. The following day was the install of kitchen sink, I never would have thought it could take 3 hours to install a sink but when I looked under the cupboard and saw the construction they did to hold the sink in place I was amazed. Next step is the back splash tiling. I still need to decide what to put there and then finish up painting. The wainscoting you can see in front of the island needs paint as well as the box with the microwave.
I did a little sewing, the bottom polka dots is a plastic. I didn't have a plan when I started making the bag, only that I had a small piece of plastic left over from a friend who made cushions for her patio. I just knew somehow I was going to make a bag from it and this is what came out.  I did more stitching on the Ruby's Garden but nothing finished to show yet.

We are having gorgeous weather with sun but not too hot, prefect for sitting out on the deck.

Lovely kitchen, and the bag is darling. I love the fabrics. Isn't this weather the greatest - we went to the beach yesterday for a picnic - heavenly.

Your kitchen (and bag) is lovely. We also have white cupboards and wondered what dark granite would look like - we are ready for a change. Thanks for the great photo!
