I was able to push some things to the side and put the binding on the wedding quilt. The wedding is October 3rd - so it needed to be done! There certainly was not much room to move about as stuff is piled on top of stuff. My sewing room was the last free bit of space left until we needed to clear everything out for the floors.
Here is a picture of the quilt - back from the quilter - who did a wonderful job on quilt it - binding is on and I am stitching the binding down in the evenings as we watch some evening TV. The quilt will be ready on time - I am almost finished the binding now.
A close up of some of the detail stitching in the border. I am very happy with the result. She stitched around all the individual people in the border.
We had a very busy weekend -- which continued right through Monday and Tuesday. The floors were being refinished - by someone who knew what they were doing! They are done now and they look lovely. We are still not able to move furniture into the house. We are planning on moving some items in on the weekend.
The first hardwood floor guy that we hired was terrible had we had to fire him after 4 days of making a mess of the job. I have pictures!! Anyway the guy who we got was able to rescue us and fix most of the first guy's mess. There are a few little things that we will be stuck with though - but I am NOT going to stress out about it too much! But if anyone out there is looking for a hardwood floor refinisher -- I can tell you who NOT to get!
We spent most of the weekend doing outside work. Repainting the garage door - painting the outside of the front of the house.
And Jim spent two days on the roof with a shop vac - cleaning the needles out of the cedar shakes.
Not a great picture with the sun in the wrong place but you get the point!
I was off to the dentist this morning to have a crown put on a tooth. So I spent the rest of the day in pain - boy did it hurt when the freezing came out. But I must get all those odd bits of dental work done in the next five years so I can retire with a good set of teeth - and no dental plan!!
