Memorial Day sew so far

Memorial Day weekend so far as been a no sew zone. Friday night we started moving stuff out of the music room. On Saturday morning, what was left got moved into the living room and our bedroom. We started the day off We removed a portion of the plaster ceiling in the room and purchased material to create a drop ceiling out of drywall. I learned alot. Within that same day we had the ceiling up, tape and compound filling the spaces between the drywall and over the nail holes. On Sunday morning, Josh got up early and added another coat. Next step, let it dry....sand...and paint. We are going to also paint the room while we have all of the stuff out of it. Next it will be turned into a bedroom for Dominic. I think he is excited to get his own room...We hope that will stop some of the bickering between him and his younger brother. Sew what If I havent been able to sew as single item this weekend, If it leads to one less brotherly fight its worth it.....right? Right? Come one tell me I am right. LOL Happy Memorial Day.

Today May the 6th...what a glorious day for DEMO...and I am not talking about a demonstration of my latest crafy creation. I am referring to our bathroom. Today bathfitters has arrived to install our new tub and shower...EXCITEMENT that is until I had to actually go get the cashiers check (LOL). We are def paying for convienience of a one day job as well as the expertise of a specialist, however with us having only one bathroom in the house...what choice do we have? During the demo, I am planning to try to enjoy my day as the worries of the home improvement project now falls on anothers shoulders...ahh bliss. {record scratch} ......back to reality!

Sew what if Im confined to my sewing room & cannot go pee for the next 6-7 hours without having to drive a few blocks to the nearest fast food restauraunt. I should still be able to get a little sewing done since I was able to be off work for the day...thanks Bathfitters!

Pics to come soon!

Fabric is bliss

Enjoyed the biggest part of my day yesterday searching for T-shirts for my T shirt quilt and buying fabric. Josh stayed home with the boys and let me enjoy the free time shopping (swoon, what a great guy). I promise to post more pics of projects soon, but here are a few of my purchases.
