Blogging (not so much)

It has recently been pointed out to me that I haven't been blogging as much.  There are several reasons...one...I have definitely been spending waaay too much time playing games on Facebook.  Another...there are just too many wonderful quilting blogs to visit each day.  But mainly, quite a few home improvements going on around here. 

First, a new roof,  then the kitchen:  All new appliances; a new granite counter top with new sink and faucet with a copper backsplash (not real copper) and finally (as of yesterday) a new floor.  I had also tried my hand at redoing my kitchen table and chairs.  The table and chairs were originally wood-tone top and seats with dark green for the rest.  I changed the green portions to black and redid the top of the table and seats of the chairs (six of them!)

Then I decided I should also do the square coffee table in the living room.  That one actually took a bit longer to do, since I had to sand the top down to the bare wood.   Believe it or not, all the chairs, and two tables were painted with Rustoleum Lacquer finish paint.
So newly painted front door,  new curtains, new slipcover for the sofa (yep!  that is a slipcover from Surefit), new lampshades (where I added the trim on top with ric rac) things in the kitchen and living room are pretty much done.  Whew!

You can see my Berries and Bluebirds quilt handing on the quilt shelf.  I also got my Wish Quilt back from the quilter.  It still needs the binding to be stitch down, but here is a picture of one corner with the candy-cane stripe border.

I guess that explains where I've been.  But...there are still three bedrooms left to tackle! ;)
