Like Shay, at Quilting in My Pyjamas before me, it seems that this blog has temporarily turned into a litany of renovations, albeit comparatively minor.
Our new house is not very old. It was built just three years ago. Oddly enough, there is not a single medicine cabinet in any of the bathrooms.
While my mother (my conspirator in home renovation) and I are up for learning new things, and have had some experience in making small repairs, neither of us wanted to tackle installing a classic medicine cabinet--one that is inset in the sheet rock. Instead we bought one of the over-the-toilet cabinets that can be purchased at any Wal-mart.
So what would any quilter do when faced with a sale from Thousands of Bolts? An end of the year sale in which the fabrics were running from $2.95/yd to $3.50/yd? Why, buy 28 yards of course!
I'm pleased to say I'm on the downhill side of one my Projects Half Done Challenge quilt. I have finished the hand-quilting, and have begun FMQ the last two borders. I attempted to take a picture of the quilting, but my thread blends so well, that none of the pictures show much. It will be very nice to have this very old project completed.
