Truthfully, things have not been still at all here, rather busy. Isn’t that the way though, you start a simple project and it snowballs into a multifaceted tangent-full job. The flow of this job began simply enough move sewing room to unused upstairs bedroom.
- Empty unused bedroom into master bedroom.
- Notice wood floor looks like a herd of buffalo went over it.
- Decide to refinish floors in two bedrooms and hallway.
- Empty second bedroom into master bedroom.
- Start to empty sewing room.
- Notice that the buffalo have also been dancing on the floor in there too.
- Add that room and adjoining room on to the list for refinishing.
- Contract with flooring guys to do upstairs one week and downstairs the next.
- Empty sewing room and adjacent room contents into family room and outside under deck.
- Hope it doesn’t rain that week, it does.
- Move furniture and stuff around to avoid dripping water.
- Floors take a day longer to dry because of rain.
- Move sewing things into room (rearrange at least three times).
- Move Bedroom things back into respective room.
- Decide to have area rugs cleaned while they are rolled up and not in use.
- When refinishers are done downstairs, decide that the former sewing room needs painting.
- Decide on paint colors, buy paint and realize that even though its a small room, every thing needs at least two coats of paint including the ceiling.
- Move things back into adjacent room (includes over 2000 CD’s).
- Go to Boston for three days.
- Finish Painting room (this took about ten days to do).
- Move furniture into it.
- Get rugs back, hang some curtains and art work.
- Contemplate what to do with multiple boxes of stuff left in master bedroom.
That concludes a month of remodel fun.
I did work a bit on quilting “El Camino” and got a backing together for a baby quilt. I may have to take El Camino off the frame, and quilt the baby quilt as the recipient is due eminently. And, I made two more Farmer’s Wife blocks.
These are Mrs. Fay and Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Fay had 12 Y seams, thankfully Mrs. Brown was less fiddle-y. I am up to blocks 69 and 70 this week, only 29 more. I have decided on a sashing and border fabric of 1930’s apple green.
More sewing and quilting ahead, really, I’m looking forward to it!
