The coming week will find Hubby and I in exile - upstairs. We have taken the last two days making our living room look like this.
All cupboards, drawers and pantry have been emptied in the kitchen to make way for the kitchen remodel which will begin first thing tomorrow morning. Remember this? Before too long, we'll finally be able to unpack the last boxes from our move.
The shelves in the laundry room can be used for things that should be stored there instead of cookware and bake ware that won't fit in the kitchen. The cooking utensils will all be in drawers rather than being carted back and forth in a shipping box.
The peninsula that forms one side of the breakfast area - and the cause of some very interesting body contortions will give way to a new island and breakfast bar.See the tape on the floor? That marks where the island will go. Oh and the floor - well it's going away, too. It will be replaced with wood to match the living and dining room. These cabinets will not go to waste. They are moving to the basement which will soon become quilting central. A pretty good birthday present, don't you think?
While the flurry of activity is going on, I'll be upstairs happily quilting. I'm working on turning these blocks into a quilt. I think I've set myself up with a nice space up there - quilting needs, computer, t.v. Everything a girl could need to pass the day while chaos reigns below.
Last night I took the last stitches in the project that was begun on my California trip last month.
A darling reminder of a fun week.
When you get an itch, scratch it!
