One more picture.....

Only one more picture after this one, I promise! tonight I finished sewing all the separator bands onto the braids and just had to try it out on the bed. This will be the last picture, until I have the borders on, quilted and bound. It fits the queen size bed perfectly with one braid hanging over each side.

Now I have to find something I can talk about while I finish this quilt. I have nothing new to report on the kitchen front. We ran into a snag in our renovation project, as we started losing water pressure. Now we live in the country and have well water, which I love. So after many visits to Lowes, several consultations with the Lowes plumber and replacing a switch of some kind and the water pump, we finally discovered it to the be the bladder in the water tank. Now in all honesty - I did not even know we had a water tank, and much less that it had a bladder!! Who knew? Add to this situation that my poor husband has been working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day, and you can see why we have not made progress on the kitchen. The water situation will be remedied by this weekend, and we can get back to knocking a doorway in the wall between the kitchen and the dining room.

Thanks for stopping by!

Teresa I love this quilt! It's going to be beautiful. :) We've made several visits to Lowe's lately, too. Who am I kidding, we visit Lowe's weekly! This last week it was a pump (we water our yard off the lake and our pump died a final death) and our stove (the old one was putting out carbon monoxide!) Good grief - Lowe's love us! Blessings, marlene

Beautiful quilt. I am planning on making a French Braid also but haven't decided what colors to use. They are so pretty and I especially like the black on the quilt.

Your braided quilt is coming along wonderfully - I really love it! I'm going to have to make one some day.

Sorry to hear about your renovation woes - that sucks. Hopefully you'll get everything solved soon.
