The Diva Club!

Today was the first meeting of the Diva Club. We made quilted totes and it was tons of fun. This is my tote that I did. It was really neat to see all the different fabrics that people picked for their totes. I should have taken my camera! Next is the mystery quilt, that's next month...the month after the Diva Club meets again and we'll be making a snowman wall hanging. As you can tell Gorby loves the new bag. Or it could be she's just horribly nosey! Then again she is a Dive herself!

The above are 2 more of the crayon challenge quilts. The show was ALOT of fun, and I could have spent a ton of money. :-)

The above quilt is the first place for the raffle!!! The following three quilts were a crayon challenge for the quild, they each drew a crayon and then had to make a small wall quilt with that color in it.

Now we are up to date!

This is where we stand at this point. The tiles are being laid, that will be complete today. Before they started that task the drywaller came one more time to sand and prime. Looking good! We should have completion on Saturday I expect.

The purple board is up and the drywall work is almost complete in these pictures. I never realized the process involved in remodeling. Especially when you watch the home improvement shows on tv and it seems everything is done so quickly!

It looks bad at this point, but still better than it was! The old tub was removed and the new one put in on the same day. And new lights, no more waiting for the old lights to heat up! There will be the lights in the ceiling, as well as a light fixture above the medicine chest. We are also getting new windows through the house, and they will be delivered next week and installed. That is the last of the work that will be done before winter.

So it's been awhile

We have moved. We are settling in and having an adventure of it. The new house is great, just needs some updates. Like the bathroom which is in the process of being done as I type. See why? It's going to be great when it's done, new everything. Tile floor, a soaker tub that is much deeper than a regular tub. We are going to a single sink, we really didn't need 2 and it takes up so much room. We do miss how big our old bathroom was!
I am also taking a Creative Writing class, which is going as well as can be expected when I haven't been in a classroom in years.
