I'll start with the sewing on Sunday evening and go backwards. After Hunter's busy time with his friends he decided that he needed some "mommy time" we went upstairs to my sewing room. He loves it up there. He has a tote that he calls his art box. Lots of papers, markers, glues, pencils and such. He is a creative little guy so my sewing room is OUR creative space. I love that he enjoys it so much.
As I was piecing some blocks on the table next to him, he was doing some drawing while we watched, "The Nightmare Before Christmas" Giggle...I think we had a little too much pop. I see a can of his and 3 cans of mine.
He decided that he wanted a bowl of cereal too. See the cars on my cutting mat.
Here are the blocks that I pieced! I finally finished up all 30 of the blocks needed for this quilt! It is a UFO that I had been working on. Now I just need to sew all of those blocks together. That may be a few weeks from now because I want to finish painting my sewing room before I put my design wall back up.
Oh, I found these little things at Walmart on clearance for .50 each. They are the perfect size for my fat quarters. I love that I have them right in front of me and can see them.
I snapped another photo of a few of my babies upstairs.
Now on to the rest of the weekend. An elderly friend of the family moved from her home and the water plant bought the lot for the property, not the house. The house was going to be torn down. The house is a small house but it is 100+ yrs old. So when my MIL called to tell us that the lady wanted to know if we needed some stuff, we jumped on it.
Saturday Richard left early to go in town to the house and started removing some things. As soon as all of those kids were picked up, Hunter and I headed to town to help him. I know that this stuff looks old and horrible, but I promise by the time we get it all redone, it will not look so bad. :)
First off, here is the hardwood flooring that we pulled up. The rooms were tiny so it took 4 rooms of hardwood just to get enough to do my living room. Here it is still piled on the trailer. See, it looks bad, doesn't it?
So what do you think??? If you look close you will see that part of the board has 2 coats. I'm loving it and can't wait to get it all refinished and sealed.
We also got this claw foot tub! I've been wanting one for my master bath and finally found one. Of course, it has to be refinished too. That will come with time. I'll post photos of that once it is finished.
I know it is hard to tell anything about this photo but here are some interior doors. They need cleaned and waxed. I'm loving the old hardware on them. I also have the skeleton keys for them.
We also got the front and back doors and a set of pocket doors. I can't get to those to take a photo. So this is what we did on Saturday and then again Sunday after Church. I'm excited about all of this but lets just say, my back is feeling it.
