Two of my favorite things...quilting and destroying rooms!

Thought I better do a little updating while I have the chance.
It's been pretty busy around here. I am not only sewing as much as possible, but, I am also in the process of redoing our master bathroom. I know, another room to add to my list of re-do's.
Here is my latest quilt on the design board.
"Half Crocked" a self portrait. lol
Half Crocked

Half Crocked

The pictures don't do it justice, it is made of all Batiks and
it's very colorful, fun and a bit off beat.
So, in that case, it really is a self portrait. 
This quilt started out straight, but, I couldn't stand it, so, out came the rotary cutter and away I cut. Not sure what I am going to do with the back yet, but, I am sure it will be just as wild and bright. 

This quilt already has a home, it's going to live with my
Brother and Sister-in-law. When Carol, my sister-in-law saw it, she said it reminded her of stained glass and would be more than happy to take if off my hands. But, I had to finish it first.
No problem.
I'm thinking of doing a straight line, OK, not so straight line, machine quilting on this one. I really liked the way the
zig zag quilt turned out with it's straight line quilting, so,
my thoughts, don't fix it if it's not broken.  

Now, on to the bathroom.  
Couple of pics of the destroyed bathroom shower. Do have to tell you that my hubby is really thrilled with me, NOT????

One thing you can say about me, I don't do things half way, it's either all or nothing.
We have all the tile off the walls, ceiling, and floor of the shower so far. Now, all we have to do is remove the tile in the rest of the bathroom. My hubby really LOVES me!!!!!
Can't wait to get this room finished so I can start on the living room and dining room,  and their NEW wood floors!!! 
Don't tell my husband, I will deny, deny, deny.

Love the self portrait. But you are SO BRAVE to tackle destroying your bathroom. I'm such a start and stop type person, I'd be afraid I'd run out of steam halfway through, and then where would we be? Washing up in the stream with a bar of soap, that's where.

I love the colors and design of your quilt. I wish I was brave enough to just destroy the room and fix it like I want it. Problem is, I'm afraid was I got it torn apart I wouldn't be able to put it back together. :) Nita
