Maestro, may I have a *drum roll,* please? We now have a fully-finished, fully-furnished, usable kitchen. Wanna have a look?
The working part.
A little closer.
Looking from end-to-end.
And back again in the other direction.
The 'eat-in' part of the island.
And looking out into the family room.
In our old home, we had a galley-style (or what I called a two-butt) kitchen. What I did not realize was just how much counter-top space that gave me . . . . until I didn't have it any longer. I'm so happy to have room to spread out again. One thing I won't miss is being closed in that galley. I will have a great view of what's going on in the family room and a little peek out the window, too.
Let's look in the family room now and see what's going on.
Hexagon progress. I got a lot of stitching done during the Olympics. I ran out of 'pathway' pieces just as the closing ceremony began. Time to baste another batch. With a goal of a queen-sized quilt, that's going to be a lot of basting! I'd better get busy.
