Rocket Man Quilt Completed

Isn't this a darling design? Of course, it's from the creative mind of my favorite designer, Sindy Rodenmayer, at Fat Cat Patterns. When I met Sindy, I suggested that outer space would be a good theme for a quilt because she hadn't done it before and I had a box of space-themed fabric! I was so thrilled when she created this pattern. Even the back of this quilt is cool. I used a print that has a navy background and planets, some of which are 4-6 inches in diameter.

I will be donating this quilt through Project Linus soon.

Construction Update!

This is a HUGE day at our house! I'm doing laundry at home again! Woo hoo! The guys finished the laundry room first to help me. My four months at the laundromat have ended. (The window looks out on the front yard.)
I want to introduce you to our guys from Mosby Building Arts who have done most of the work on this project. (Many subcontractors have come and gone, but these have been our guys all the way through.) First is James, our project manager, who is willing to do any job, including washing windows. Those are bookcases on that wall, and there will be a little gas stove in between.

Here are Steve and Steve, who are working outside because it is finally warm enough to work on the deck. These guys are so funny!
This is Tony, our painter. The picture is taken from the new room, in front of the bookcases, looking toward the laundry room.

As you can see, the project is moving right along! We'll probably be finished in a couple of weeks.
On an unrelated note, the song in my head today is "Hillbilly Bone" by Blake Shelton. This song has such a good beat (sounds like I'm on "American Bandstand") that I feel like I could do the Texas two-step to it--and I've never tried that before!
