...in to the cupboards!!!
I had a SUPER productive day yesterday.
Now we wait for the appliances.
And yes... that color is not builder's beige. It's PINK!
I will be painting again...in the winter.
And the antique buffet with the rounded glass in the corner?
That's a sneak peak for Colleen. I will get a better picture when it's clean in here!!
It's going to be an 'Enough Already' day!

Of Torquay, Saskatchewan....that is!!
|Mrs. Jeanne Wanner|
Mrs. Jeanne Marie Wanner
86 years young....
retired school teacher....
smart as the day is long....
memory like NO other......
MASTER gardener beyond!!
It was an amazing garden tour!
On the home front, I finished baling yesterday just before the crazy storm!!
We got a start in the installation of the cupboards on Sunday.
Now the serious stuff begins....
But first it's tea with the quilting girls today!!
(not at my house thank goodness)

It's renos in the morning and haying into the night!!
Haying has begun.
I should finish cutting today and then start baling.
That is..... when I am not stuck.
I am proud to say I made it out of that mud hole... barely.
We are two weeks ahead of schedule as the alfalfa weevil is eating the hay as fast as it can grow so it is now or never.
That is not bits of hay... that is the little bug doing all the damage!!
Times a couple thousand!!
Talk about camouflage in the hay.
On the kitchen front...The taping was complete yesterday.
A coat of primer last night and another of paint this morning!!
And as an added bonus to the mix....
The cupboards have arrived!!
This wrapped package is like a butterfly at cocoon stage.
It's going to be quite the transformation.
Better get to it!!
Got a few things to do!!

It was quite the aftermath after an evening of weeding in the garden!
a new refrigerator and.....
These renos can really get out of hand!!
So I better get some work done as the hay is ready....
and the haybine is needing some TLC!!

otherwise known as 'Dad' came over yesterday.
To transform a very crooked and ratty looking wall
into a piece of art!
I have to say...there is a hot tub at Audio Video that is speaking to me!!
I wonder if it goes with the new deck?
It really could add to the sightline from the kitchen...
I need find a microwave first.
That way supper will cook faster and I would have more time to soak...
The hunt continues...

Yesterday was spent OR wasted,
depending on your theory of progess,
Mom and I went to every(and I do mean every) store looking for a convection/microwave oven
a Chimney range hood like this one.
It's not like I went with a one track mind.
I am not TOO picky but know what I like.
What a frustrating day!!
No one knows ANYTHING!!!
Salesmen tried to sell me a microwave that they SAID was convection but when I started to ask simple questions on how it worked it became very apparent that they did not have a clue!!
But we did find a sink and some flooring.
So the hunt is on again today.
I think there may even be a contractor named 'Dad' swinging by to put up so gyproc today!!

I had to miss quilting yesterday.
It definately was a toss up as to where I would have rather been.
When the neighbours see the old grain truck pulled up to the house, I am sure they are saying 'OMG, She's at it again!!'
This is all that remains of my kitchen.
|Dad and Max|
A good contractor is hard to find but I am lucky to have the best dad.
My dad has been working magic with gyproc for 40 years and has worked his miracles on my house.
This was my utility room before....
My sewing room in the middle of renos.
What used to be three bedrooms, has become one big and beautiful space.
I can't give you an after picture at the moment as my kitchen is living there right now.

Another one off the list!!
This quilt turned out quite large.
I need to find a better place to take a picture of it.
It is ready to go to my favorite longarmer, Terry Whitman.
The corners turned out quite cute with the dragonfly blocks in the corners
So after cleaning up my mess of purple I came across a purse pattern I printed off awhile back.
This is treat is from the Moda Bake Shop where great recipes can be had for free.
I loved this laminated ladybug fabric when I saw it in Sidney, MT at Quilts and More.
My first thought was a cute bag!!
I managed to make 3 of these cute bags in no time!!
Now for a closure and voila!!
I hear it is supposed to rain all weekend.Could be a productive sewing weekend!!
I better go make good use of the sun today!!

It was a stormy and super windy day yesterday.
But it was a great day to try a pattern out of my new book from Terry Whitman.
|Just one of my great B Day gifts!!|
I made four of these dragonfly blocks which I will put on the corners of my Petals quilt.
Thanks to Tracey for her suggestion on a border.
I am definately going to do it like that!! Stay tuned for the finished product in the NEAR future!!
I also received a surprise package in the mail.
It was a box filled with handmade cards, a mini purse and a book of inspirations!!
Thank you sooo much, Shelby!!
The holly banner has begun in Winterwonder.
