I Need Your Vote!

Quilting Gallery sponsors a weekly themed quilt contest, and the theme this week is "Little Boys". I decided to enter to try to win supplies to support my Project Linus work. (I've made about 160 so far, which requires plenty of thread and batting as well as fabric.)

The contest can be found here. If you feel I deserve your vote, I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

It Looks Like a House Now!

We still have a long way to go, but I wanted to show our addition now that it is clad in the same siding as the house. (The trim isn't quite finished.) There is a lot of activity inside now as tile setters, painters, plumbers, and finish carpenters dance around each other. Hopefully it will soon be warm enough to add the deck connecting our back porch to the addition. We are hoping to move DMIL in April.

I've been having fun redecorating my blog today. With so much mess in my house it is a pleasure to be able to change the "decor" of something without creating dust and drips. Today the men are sanding the drywall in the addition. They taped everything up tightly. There is still thick plaster dust on everything! How does that happen?

The song in my head of the day is "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson. I have a very strange mind.

Don't You Wish Your Dining Room Was Hot Like Mine?

Don't you wish your home was as lovely as mine? Do you remember this room from my Christmas picture? Now it's a storeroom for faucets, a toilet, sinks, a shower drain, a ceiling fan, light fixtures, many tubes of caulk, etc. On the other side of the room are stacks of boxes of collectibles from DMIL's house. They say that in a few weeks all of the building supplies will be installed in our room addition. It'll be sad in a way. Then I'll have to start cleaning again.
