Lots of Electric!!!



I am getting so excited about the new sewing room and office. When the electric guy left he ask my hubby just what was I gonna do in there and Ray chuckled!! He then explanined that no quilter ever had too many sewing machines!! I have everything stacked and doubled stacked in another room awaitng the completion . I do know the tile is ordered, cabinets finished, dry wall going up Monday. The room is dried in and we had a big rain , no leaks I was very happy for that!We had a lovely Easter dinner over at my childrens father's house,great food and lots of chatting. Thought I would share a picture of Faith, boy oh boy is she growing up! Hope to use my Go cutter today and cut some more things out. I will be more than ready to sew when the room is done. I have decided to take my big quilt machine in for service and not sell it, already had a lady come by to see if I was still using it. With this room I better put it to use.That's all for now, Have a beautiful weekend and prayers for all those that have family and friends in the cities that had so much destruction.Hugs, Marie

SewingRoom and Office Construction



Hello my friends, Wanted to share a couple of the pictures that Ray took of the construction so you can see what we are doing to our little house. YES it willbe so nice to have the spare bedroom as it should be and tohave a computer?office willbe great-BUT------the very best to me is to have the room for my quilting and sewing. We will have added about 500 square ft accross the backof our house, lots of room to play in. I order the counters, and cabinets last week for the sewing room and the counter and the large book cases to go in the office. I will show you more as the progres. HOpe all is god for each of you.

Changes

The next few weeks will be very hectic for us and I have decided to not blog until we are able to finish the house and get some of Ray's health issues taken care of. I will miss each of you as you have become a part of my family. I will still read as time permits your precious blogs as they give me so much encouragement and really start my day. God Bless each of you. Love and hugs, Marie

Working Away







One of our LQS's is closing in April so a friend of mine went up with me-now I really didn't need anything but oh the goodies I came home with. Of course when we left there we had to go to our favorite LQS and it was so much fun, found some nice things to work on. I got out my trusty Go and cut some fabris and then decided I really needed to sew up some things that were bugging me. I had bought some college fleese a while back and wanted to make the grandkids some throws so yesterday while Nascar was on I was working away. I did five of them -- wow five finishes in one day I know they were not tough things but I really did them-What a great feeling. NOw on to the next project. Gee when you want construction to go fast it just goes slower so I am just going to try to relax (what does that mean?).My baby brother is coming into Port Canaveral on Wednesday with his sweet wife and they are on a crusie to somewhere and their fist stop is here. I get to go to the Port and pick them up for a few hours and bring them to my house for a visit, It will be so much fun. WEll off to get things going for MOnday. Tomorrow will be a little cleaning up for family visit.Have a beautiful Monday. Thought I would include a few pictures from Faith from Her birthday, riding her bike to Granny's house, adding a yellow ribbon for Uncle Claude to her mail box with her Mom and the beautiful flag pole we added infron of our little house when my preciouse son left for Iraq.Enjoy my family. Hugs, Marie
