Can you believe that it's the first day of 2016??? The past year seems to have just flown by - at least for me! I'm looking forward to another year full of quilt-making and creating, and I know you are too! I hope you've been able to do some whooping this week, so let's get started and see what everyone's been up to!
I have not had the opportunity to sew much at all this week. On Saturday morning after Christmas, we cleared out all the furniture and appliances from the kitchen...
...then over the next two days my husband ripped out the hardwood floors and laid down rosin paper...
...Monday and Tuesday he put down new sub-flooring...
Meanwhile, I was at work upstairs cleaning and re-organizing my sewing studio...
It's definitely a work in progress, and promises to get worse before it gets better...
...but at least I found the floor in front of my window again!!
And I re-organized all my thread! The top of those two bookcases is going to be an ironing station now - I have a spare piece of plywood left over from the flooring to cover with batting and a pretty canvas. I can't wait! There's still a long way to go, but hopefully by next Friday, I'll have a clean and organized studio to share with you!!
After my husband finished with the sub-flooring, it became my turn to work on the floor.
I spent Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday laying tile...
And when I quit Thursday night I was almost finished!
I still have about four pieces to cut, but they are going to be very tricky and I needed more brainpower than I had at the end of the day to do it then. So that will be my project for Friday morning!
And one more thing I'm whooping about - - -
Thirty-seven years ago today I said "I do" to this great guy - and I haven't regretted it for a minute! Here's to thirty-seven more!
So that's what I'm happy dancing about this week - can I get a whoop whoop??
And now it's your turn!
What have you been whooping about this week?
What's making you dance a happy dance?
Share - we want to dance right along with you -
And it's always more fun to dance with friends!
The party will stay open until Sunday midnight -
Hope to see you there!
Hugs and Happy New Year!
