Almost done!!

My counter top is in with the 2 sinks.  The faucets are the ones you can set the temp and just touch them to turn the water on and off!  Too Cool!  Needs the back splash done, mirrows and Terry is building the medicine cabinet.

Shower is done!!! Will get new towels and before you know it, there will be soap scum on the doors!  I ran into them twice they were so clean.

Terry's bathroom has all the shower pieces in it.  The doors are on order.  Same with the counter top for his sink.

I'm working on a smaller piece.  She had mailed me a check and it disappeared in the mail.  So I waited for over a month before I asked her for a check and she didn't know what I was talking about.  The check was never cashed!  So I'm trying to get it done for her since she paid me right away after that and has been waiting.  She did beautiful hand piecing on this miniature!!!

This one is in the frame and I will get it done by October?  I have another Hawaiian one that I'm itching to get at!  It has the Hawaiian flags and the symbol in the middle.  Very impressive! 
 
Terry and I cleaned up 2 of the bedrooms last night and bagged up all the trash.  Boxes went to the dump this morning, and then to Home Depot for more wood for the medicine cabinets.  Never ends!  I want the rooms ready so as soon as the carpet gets to the warehouse, then I want it in!!!  I have had some of my boxes of quilt things over at my son's apartment for over a year now!  I want this stuff back and I'm sure he wants it out of the way.
 
I think I took 2 or 3 truck loads of stuff over there.  So that's more work to finish up this remodel. 
 
When they took all the sheetrock off the walls, I took pictures of everything in the walls.  No water damage or bugs!  And then when they put extra supports in the walls I took pictures of that, and where the plumbing is.  Many times the guys asked to see those pictures to find supports and make sure they weren't hitting any pipes.  So if you every have work done, then get out your cameras and print out the pictures.  Put them in sleeves and in a binder.  Saved so much time later!!!
 
As for the quilting during this time, I grab things when I can.  Always seems like I get into a groove and someone needs something at the store.  Sometimes I leave when the big stuff is going in.  Don't want to be here if something goes wrong!!!  I came back one time, and all these bandages were on the kitchen counter.  I found the guys and asked who had been bleeding.  Wasn't bad...but they never pick everything up.
 
So Terry is going to ride his bike.  Do I stay and quilt or go yard saleing?  I don't know!
 
There is always a "plot twist" in life!
