Still plugging along

Sorry it's been a while since I got on here and updated the blog, but, I have been busy, busy, busy. David and I are about 1/3 of the way finished on the bathroom redo, and, if I don't watch it, this will be my LAST redo in this house. It has been one thing after another with this room. You wouldn't think one of the smallest rooms in your house would be your biggest headache. Well, it is, but, we are still plugging along and we will get there some day. (let's hope is soon, really, really soon).

Anyway, here are a couple of pics on our progress.
This is when we started removing all the old tile, wall paper, floor, and all the molding.
Hubby looks like he is having fun. (he was at this point)

You know you are a Redneck when.........
Now, tell me, how many people can claim they have a toilet in their hallway?????
Well, I can!!!
We do have most of the shower tiled, next step is getting the glass tiles inserted and tiling the ceiling of the shower. Shouldn't take more than a day to do that and then we can start on the floor. Since David is taking off all next week, I can see the end in sight. YEAH

Now on to quilting.  

I finished my Spiked with Color quilt, and, entered into the Tulsa State Fair.
This is a first for me, so, I guess I will just have to sit back and see what happens.

This is not the finished picture of the quilt, but, you can see which one I'm talking about.
I forgot to take a picture of it before I entered it in the fair.  I was just so happy I got it finished,
(King size Hand quilted) everything else pretty much slipped my mind. 
I promise I will get the finished pics uploaded when I get my quilt back.

Couple more quilts I am working on.

Another Zig Zag. This is going to be bigger than my last one, it will be more of a full size than lap size. Quilting this one it going to be a challenge, but, a fun one.

I also have two more quilts cut out and ready to start sewing, and a bag of strips to play with. Not sure what I'm going to do with them, but, it's going to be fun trying.

Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving comments, I love reading them.
(besides, leaving a comment let's me know someone is reading it!)
