under construction

My house is having some renovations done, new window frames, new plaster, new ceiling. So my weekend was filled with all kind of other non quilting work. -Wipe off grey concrete dust is not one of my most favorite jobs to do-. Let's just say it's all for a good cause!

But today the dust is gone and there are no workmen in the house.
So, I can quietly withdraw myself back into my cozy room upstairs
where the fall quilttop is still waiting to get finished.
I hope to show some pictures of it soon.
Have a good start of the week you all!

You too Corry...I hate too when we do painting or any kind of renovations around the house because of the mess, but I love the results.
I can't wait to see the after pictures.

I always love the thought of having renovations, but in reality people in my home and all that dust - yuk!

Enjoy your quilting,

Ugh. I hate living in the midst of renovations. Hang in there! Beth

I'm sitting here listening to work being done on my pavillion/deck. Of course if I listen past that, I can hear the bank construction going on across the way. No silence for me, unfortunately. Just power tools. Can't wait to see your quilt top!

Werklui over de vloer....yakk! Maar ja, het 'moet' soms hè? Wij hebben hier nog zo'n bahamabeige toilet dat nu echt vervangen moet worden...ik zie er zo tegenop, bah! Ik wens jullie veel succes, jullie hebben alvast de eerste (en misschien nog wel meer) stap gezet, ik moet alles nog regelen :-(!

vreselijk om in het stof te zitten maar heerlijk om het (stofvrij!) resultaat te zien ...

Heidi said...

Nooit die stof maar het resultaat is meestal het moiete waard. Vind het ook nooit leuk om allerlei vreemde mensen in huis te hebben. Heb je ook een stukje aan gebouwd? Geniet van al het nieuws en ik kijk vooruit naar je herfstquilt te zien.

Hugs en groetjes ~

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Oh lucky you! I can't tell you how badly my house needs renovation. My dad is currently building me a craft room...dust everywhere. I'm trying so hard to keep it from my fabric!
