My Goodness!

All I did was call my husbands attention to a loose tile in the bathroom!  Actually I had been doing this for a couple of months---but this time I raised my voice a little more.  Anyway, we got a contraction to come in, with the intention of having a new tile floor put down.  Little did we know!


We ended up replacing the entire floor down to the joints.  Since we were tearing everything up---why not totally renovate it.  So that is just what has been going on.  Since this will be an absolutely beautiful bath, the other bathrooms don't look so good----so---I will have contractors in the house all summer.  Needless to say, my budget for fabric will be affected a little! (to say the least)!

I finally finished the black and white quilt.  I have decided I do not really like "modern quilting".  It takes too long and uses too much thread!  I wanted to take this off the frame so badly, but I decided I was going to push on and finish.  It is a pattern by J. Gehering (spelling) that was in a magazine.  Not sure what I will do with it, but this is one of those things I can say "been there, done that, got the t-shirt".
Well wanted to check in.  Bath should be done by next week and I can move back into my bedroom and my bed!
Have a blessed Easter Holiday!


  1. Patricia, your quilt looks fab! Classically modern, if I can say that.
    My hubby would love a quilt like that.

    Good Luck with the bathroom! It's worth it.

    Happy Easter!

  2. Is dense quilting a feature in modern quilting? I love the quilt there a magazine for MQers?

    The bathroom remodel story reminded me of Etta James singing "I asked my baby for a nickel and he gave me a 20 dollar bill, asked him for a little drink of liquor and he gave me a whiskey still"

    Have fun with the remodel!
