The carpet layers are here.  They are laying carpet.  It is AMAZING how quickly they are moving through the house.  The living room is about done, and they've moved on to the first bedroom, part of the hall, and the hall closet.  Amazing.

I may have let on how stressed I was about preparing for this.  Apparently I was even more stressed than I knew, as by Wednesday evening, I was flat on my back.  I stayed that way through most of the weekend.  We're talking almost 5 days of...nothing but moaning and groaning.  ;)  The doctor prescribed some antibiotics, and threw out a few theories.  My choice of the lot is diverticulitis.  All said, I did very little to prepare, and the carpet guys got to move EVERYTHING.

Right now I'm at the back of the house, seriously considering a nap.  I'm exhausted.  Five days of doing nothing can wear a person out!  Don't believe me?  You could try it, but I don't advise it.

While I sit here, I'll dream of being back at the coast, with the wonderful horizons.  Want to see some Ocean Waves quilts?  Some oldies but goodies?  I've posted some before, but others haven't visited the blog.

Well that's been a trip down Memory Lane!  I don't know if I even remembered them all.  What I do know is...if I had to chose a favorite pattern, it might just be this one!!

I am sending hugs and prayers your way. This carpet thing is just too much, Suzanne. Hope it is all finished soon with excellent results.

Ocean Waves is one of my favorites! Great to see these oldies-but-goodies. Creative from the beginning.
