The last couple of weekends have found us painting, first the undercoat.
I felt like I was in a sugar cube. Then we added two top coats to the ceiling and walls (didn't need to paint where the cabinetry was going) ...
Then we had 3 layers of vinyl and tiles pulled up - yay the boards are in great condition and should polish up beautifully. There are various opinions as to what they are, I'm going with Baltic pine. That was the good news, the bad news was that there were 100s of metal staples that needed removing...
...a job that had to be finished that night so it was all hands on deck. It took five of us working til 11pm. We have no electricity in the kitchen so the boys used the torch apps on their phones. Most of the cupboards were installed the next morning and it's now starting to look like a real kitchen. Next we have to wait a couple of weeks while the stone bench tops are cut.
Antique Wedding Sampler is also coming along beautifully. I finished block #16 yesterday, by machine appliqueing the broderie perse.
I can see the end in sight as I "only" have four more blocks to make. I've even booked it in for quilting so I will really have to get a shuffle on.
I have also finished hand piecing the first two blocks of my Value Proposition quilt - I'm loving making this!
I should just be concentrating on AWS but I find it very difficult to just work on one project - do you have the same problem?
