Well... I have a feeling today is going to be a bit busy.
First up... I have patchwork class... where I will be continuing to work on the 2nd little wall hanging for my friend Bernadette.
I am loving that little dragon!
Then I have to get home in time for a visit from a Rep' from Carpet Court.
She is going to give me a quote for new flooring in the kitchen/family room/stairway and front door area.
As I DON'T WANT wood laminate put down again, I am looking at taking a 'cash out' option from our insurance company.
They only replace 'like for like'... and as I've told them... I have lost faith in wood laminate! It's utter shit.
You don't need to get much water on it to ruin it... and now that it's happened twice in two years, I am not going to risk it happening again!
So what I'm thinking of is carpet to match what's already in the house (fingers crossed they have it), at the front door, on the stairs and in the family room, and tiles in the kitchen and under the breakfast bar area.
I'm hoping their quote will come in around the same amount as the 'cash out' settlement from the insurance company.
Once she's been I can relax and look forward to the weekend. We are expecting visiting family tomorrow, which is always nice.
Lacy sent me some photos of Miss Muppet last night, seems she loves helping the men work on car engines, just like her Mummy:
Well as I thought, busy, busy, busy.
ABOVE: Today in class I got the letters on, it took 2 hours to sort out what fabrics to use, draw the letters and get them the right size and position them on the wall hanging.
THAT took a while, we tried this way and that way and with some collaboration with the others in the class I settled on this.
Once home I added the butterflies.... doing them took 1.5 hours!
Now it's time to get the batting glued on the back and start stitching.
The Carpet Court lady arrived bang on time and took measurements and I should hear back from her in a day or so with the quote. I hope it's affordable to do what I want.
NO COMMENTS TODAY! Wow... I'm NOT feeling the love people. I'm not that boring am I?
OK. Looks like there might have been a 'glitch' with comments getting through today, suddenly there's heaps! *smiles*
End of Day: well I have had a super day. Got some sewing done, hopefully on the way to resolving our floor issues and it's Friday night... Coronation Street it on. Yeah.
