All Better

My webmistress fixed the website last night. whew! That was 4 hours of unexpected quilt show stress that I really did not need. Now you can go to the site and get show details in English. all better. yay!

I thought I'd show you a few more details of the remodel.

In the garage, there is space to park cars. yay! In the original structure, you had to turn 90 degrees to get into the carport. None of our cars could do it, except maybe the Metro.

We put a utility sink in the garage. It's deep and heavy duty cast iron, set in a handcrafted beech frame made by one of the boys' high school classmates.

On Thursday, they put up the gate between the houses. Actually, it's at the breezeway, to keep the dog in and people out.

It was so quiet, I heard knocking. tap tap tap. The contractors were gone. Who was working?

If you click on the picture, you might see Mr. Red-headed Woodpecker on the right side of the upper Y limb.

There he is again, I can see him...can you?

These birds are easier to spot. I saw them in Lindsay, after our quilt show meeting. There are several murals around town, really giving it some life. This particular mural is by artist Stephen Ball. It caught my eye especially, since I bought one of his paintings back in 1995, the first time I saw his work. That one is a trout, not a bird or quail, but it's one of my favorites.

And that's all I've got for you today. I quilted another baby quilt, but I still need to bind it. Stay tuned...
