Laminate floor is IN!!
This floor came from Sam’s Cub…and I love it. It has the padding already attached to the underside of each plank.
It is thicker than most laminates, and the price was really good.
Not only that, you could buy the molding kit to go with it, I don't know if you can see around the tile threshold that there is trim around the tile? It finished off so nice!
Of course, I can’t claim any part of getting this floor in. It happened while I was gone.
Bye bye ugly white berber ((that was more stained than white!)) and hello, easy clean!
Trim where laminate meets tile in the sewing area!
It’s just SO NICE!
Picked up an area rug at Lowes for in front of the TV.
The paneling on the walls is going to go, with the plan to put in pine planks so the downstairs matches the upstairs. No rush on that. Just “some day.”
Under the stairs!
There is a wood circle “coupling” that goes around the large pole to the spiral stairs that is not in place yet, but it’s coming. Treadle machine in the parlor cabinet, and 2 bins of fabric in the back corner!
Sadie on this morning’s walk….taking off into the woods.
I love my morning walks up there, which will switch to afternoon walks after the time changes and mornings are too cool to want to go out early.
Blazing a trail with her nose!
It just smells SO good up on the mountain. There is nothing like it. In fact, I’m probably headed back up on Tuesday to move things around for when Siobhan and Tonya come up next weekend.
Here’s a bit of Sadie after our walk!
I didn’t get all done that I wanted to this weekend, but we did have fun with neighbors for dinner and a long full-of-hilarity game of Farkle to follow. Time out with friends is better than moving things around for retreat.
And while my wi-fi was down today ---
I pulled out THIS quilt to share:
Gifted to me….by someone who knows how I love string quilts!
I love how some of the diamonds have strings and some are plain!
And what about that string and 9 patch border?
I think it is only on there to make the quilt big enough! It’s only on one side…..one LONG side, not across the top!
Contains 1920s and 1930s fabrics, some feed sacks and flour sacking and loads of clothing scraps. Total love.
SO, here I am at home for a couple of days. My columns are done for Quiltmaker. The mystery quilt is underway and right on schedule. I have plans to go back up to Quilt Villa on Tuesday….
How about QUILT-CAM tomorrow night, Monday, Aug 18 at 9pm EST??!
I’ll be ready!
