I cannot believe that it is Monday morning already and I have to start another week of work. My house is a total wreck. My DH started remodeling our kitchen over a year ago and now it is down to the nitty gritty. I don't know how one man can make such a mess. On Friday night we went to Lowe's to pick out the kitchen sick. Since we are having granite countertops installed, I picked out a black sink. I thought Joe was going to drop over from the shock of me picking out a black sink but it goes so well with the countertops. So when we got home he ordered the countertops. Joe is making all the cabinets himself (out of maple) and so far he has done a wonderful job. Well, in order to have the countertops installed, everything below that had to be replaced and it had to be replaced this weekend. So now, my whole kitchen is in my dining room. I am just hoping that this entire mess will be over by Thanksgiving. If not, all I can say is we are eating out.

Didn't get much sewing done. I started machine appliquing the center part of a quilt that I am working on that I had put aside. I am trying to finish one thing up before I start anything new which doesn't seem to work. I had to take Baby Lock machine in last week because it was giving me fits. Ihave had problems with the feed dogs on it and had previously taken it in for the same thing. I guess they got sick of me complaining because the repairman finally caliberated the feed dogs and I am doing a happy dance. It is finally sewing beautifully.

On another note, I found my camera with the directions so keep your fingers crossed I might actually get to post some pictures this week.
