Okay, one final plea for votes for my swan quilt on the Bernina quilt contest: If you go here to my other art quilts blog you will find the steps needed to take in order to vote.
I am now in 6th place. But could possibly move up to 5th or 4th. I have no dreams of being #1, but would appreciate being a little higher up to the top than I am right now.
So again, let me thank everyone who has already voted for my quilt.
And thank YOU if you go and vote now!
Busy weekend for us here.
Today we will shop for bathroom fixtures (faucets, sinks, counter tops, toilets, shower door); look at flooring; buy and/or order a screen door; kitchen faucets too. Time to give 22 year old house a facelift. I'm calling this our Extreme Makeover!
Mike has agreed to do the work in bathrooms and kitchen and doors. He will also help us shop for best buys.
We will hire out to a crew for professional floor laying of laminate and tile when he is done; and for painters too. He assured us that our upstairs and family rooms do not need paint. So we only need to have the living room, hallway to downstairs bath and kitchen painted, and the front door.
The crews can do the job in a couple of days that would take one man much longer. I am glad he gave us this advice.
I have been wanting this dream to happen for a very very very long time! Nobody pinch me and wake me up...as it seems that it is actually really going to happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the meantime, we keep packing boxes; next we will attack the garage and purge more belonging collected over our 31 years together.
I did not take a picture of Mike. Just imagine him as sweet and helpful!
Oh, and hey, we get to babysit again tonight! Life is bliss!!!
