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!

Carol made the heart and Cheryl the American Flag in honor of July being USA's birthday - July 4th, Independence Day! I just love these blocks and feel blessed to live in this wonderful country!
And what did I make for this Independence Day month? A pineapple of course!!! And why a pineapple you ask? Because this is the land of the free and I could! Ok, I really just wanted to try my hand a pineapple blocks and this was a good way to do it without having to make an entire quilt. Happy Stitching !

I am collecting 2.5 inch squares for a Cathedral Window quilt workshop I will be conducting and she was so sweet to share some of her beautiful leftovers with me. She also included a wonderful card she made. I just love coffee, so the card is perfect for me!

The Bad news is they scratched the countertop putting the sink in...sigh. Called the contractor, a new countertop on the way, but now we have to endure the mess and smell of the glue all over again.
The Good News is that hubby and I got a new ceiling fan installed and it runs smooth with no wobbling! WTG Fred!!
The Good News is I got three days off work for this project. Two spent at the house while the workers were here and today I am headed to Columbia to see my good friend Darlene. I also got in some sewing time, finishing up my braids for the French Braid quilt and completing the July Redwork stitchery. No bad news here!
