We have progress...

The roof is done, the room is painted and the electrician is here putting up my new ceiling fan. The furniture isn't going back in until Friday because David has to come help Mike move the furniture.
I'm feeling very restless today. I can't settle to anything. I should be sewing the binding on a t-shirt quilt for a customer but I've been surfing the net. I have done some of the sewing but my fingers get sore. Yes, I'm doing it by hand. I know, I know. I'm going to learn how to do it by machine; Judy L. put a tutorial on her blog, http://www.patchworktimes.com/2009/06/05/binding-vide/ so I know I can do it.

Giveaway and other news

Head on over to Kathy Ellzey's blog, http://fancystitchingnews.blogspot.com for a giveaway!! Kathy recently took some classes with Jamie Wallen, one of the premier longarm teachers in the US. She learned some great techniques and wants to share.

The roof was done yesterday and it only took one guy until lunchtime to do it. Dang, he was good!! A team of two came to work on the inside. Took out all the old ceiling and went to work on giving us a new room. They're even sanding all the woodwork not just the part with water damage. I'll post pics when it's done.

I finished quilting a t-shirt quilt I made on commission. All I have to do is bind it and it'll be ready to be given as a birthday gift next week. It's been hard focusing ever since the ceiling came down but I did it. It's done.
