We are very fortunate that our insurance company has been good to us. We have heard horror stories of certain insurance companies not wanting to pay up. We are also taking this opportunity to paint and put in hardwood floors which I have always wanted. And the best news is new furniture!! I am working on some quilted pillows to go with my new sofa which is very colorful. Also the hand quilting helps me to focus on the end results and not the inconvenience.
I think I will machine quilt this one in parallel lines to give some texture.
I did this yesterday and I am not sure what to do with it. Could be a cute pillow or maybe the beginning of a quilt to use in my new room. I have some fabrics with me but inspiration has not hit me yet. I am thinking of maybe doing some 6" squares in different patterns, log cabin, 9 patch, etc and then putting them together.
I had to include this picture of my precious younger grandson on his quilt. Notice the boots, it was in the 90s that day. Do kids get any cuter than this?
I found this quote and thought it fit what I was feeling.
I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.
I am trying very hard these days to concentrate on how our house will look in a month and not the way it looks right now. I am also trying very hard to be grateful that someone else took the stuff out of the attic and I didn't have to. Believe me only about 25% of it will go back. I am going to take this opportunity to purge!!
I am also loving playing with Pinterest these days. So much fun to look and see what other folks are looking at. It is very convenient for me with my redecorating.
