Two more BASICS quilts ready to bind....  The next Fundraiser is October 29th, so I will be scrambling this weekend to get backs cut for 8 other tops, and send out the 4 more fabulous longarmers who offered to quilt them for me... 
I just love these two... so fun...

BEFORE                             AFTER

we never had an island by my kitchen, but we put a old credenza there to try it out when we thought about building one in... So the left is the OLD way, and the right is the NEW way!
And I have handy dandy bookshelves for my cookbooks. ( I LOVE COOKBOOKS)
 And we moved are ART around...  Looks so much better in here!

EXCEPT, the new wood work stops at the kitchen, so I guess what?
now I need to redo my kitchen cabinet doors, because the look very old and tired as well,
butted up to my new ones! LOL!  It never ends, does it?



Yes!  A few of you mentioned that BLOGLINES is closing down!
I KNOW! After I posted that,  I got that message!
Good grief... I am back to Reader...  
At least I haven't lost any of my blogs this time!
I moved them promptly!
Now I just need time to catch up on my blog reading...



  1. Your kitchen looks incredible! The barstools are great, and, is that a stainless steel countertop? Great table and chairs. Just love the look of it all!

  2. Love love love the new kitchen !~! Blue and orange look so compatible in that artwork over your table, just gorgeous in one of my favorite combinations.

  3. Your creative juices will be pumping with all this 'newness' and fresh startedness around you. Looks fab and love the art work. Bet you love working in your kitchen now, too (although not as much as in your studio!). Ciao
