I am back and it feels almost strange to be blogging after 9 weeks of silence. Trust me, the silence was only on my blog. My life has been anything be silent with the remodeling that we have been doing. At last it is all done and we are starting to get back into normalcy.....sort of. I have tons of pictures to show you so sit back and relax.
Right after my last blog, our family and friends got together and completely tore out my kitchen cabinets, counter tops, flooring and baseboards
Then we had to paint the walls so they would be all nice and clean. Good bye orange walls, hello Swiss Coffee.
Our microwave was our only way to actually cook anything and it sat in our living room.
Cabinets are installed. This is now week 3 with no kitchen. We still have flooring to lay and counter top slabs to pick out. Seems like things are taking forever.
We also installed new LED lighting throughout the kitchen. Makes it nice and bright
But, that isn't all we had going on. While waiting on counter tops.....Our two bathrooms got their remodel done too. Guest bath was done first. ( My dogs and I went to a friends house during this part. )
She thinks this is HER bathroom now. Gosh she is growing up way to quick for this MiMi.
Our friends knew that hubby and I are not getting any younger and built us a platform for our washer and dryer. What a back saver.
Flooring is laid in dining room, kitchen, powder room and laundry room. Week 4 comes and goes.
We head out to the tile place to pick out our slabs the day the cabinets are completely installed. Slabs are picked and we are told everything should be done in two weeks for install......................................Someone lied to us. Seven days later we still had not been contacted to approve the template layout for our counter tops. So........The not so nice Leftycrafter made a few phone calls. We got in to approve the layout within 3 days and then was told it would be 2-3 weeks before install...............................Guess who got nasty and in their faces? Yup, that was me. Imagine that.....................counter tops were ready for install in one week. Plumber was out the next day to hook up the new dishwasher and new sink. SO this is the finished product.........................
I am totally in love with my new kitchen. I even enjoy cooking again. My storage space increased by 1/3 and I no longer have kitchen items in the laundry room or back pantry.
During this time..................I did a bit of crafting. Cause what else is a girl suppose to do. Here is what is on hook and needles.
Our future Son in Law sock. Completed on and still have another one to do. They took forever as the man does not have a small foot.
Second Snoqualmie Falls sock. I really love this pattern as it is full of interest and never gets boring.
This afghan will actually end up being a mermaid tail afghan. It is pretty simple to do and something I can do while watching TV. Just a little to warm to continue working on it at this point though. The weather here needs to cool off pretty soon, or I will be working on all this heavy items on Christmas Eve again.
I am also making an American Flag afghan. I am half way done with the body of the afghan and I have all 50 stars made for it. I took some great photos of it, but for some reason, they will not download off my camera.
We have installed the new Windows 10 and have found a few other glitches with it. But this is the first one that has me frustrated.
Anyway..................until next time........................Happy Crafting!
