Happy New Year

Men with tools are nearly gone but they’ve left the good stuff behind. Words can’t express adequately how much I love what has taken place here. There are a few details left to iron out before we can get our certificate of occupancy. The kids will hopefully be in by mid Jan. Below are some pics of the work. My house is on the left. BIL Bob’s new digs are under the porch and run to the front. The kids new house is on the right and the upper portion of the house except for James old room. That is the pale pink room below….eeeeeek, my new sewing room. The porch is being used for staging right now so it will look a lot better when all the crap is removed.

The floors are so beautiful121201_06_01 121221_26 121221_14 The new master bath awaiting shower enclosure and BIL Bob’s new bath awaiting everything. In between is the guest room/baby room and here is the lovely new staircase in the new house.121207_06 121201_07_02

I can’t seem to make these photos do anything I want but you get the idea. It’s been a long haul and a very noisy one. I’m ready for a winters quiet rest and for locating my sewing machine and fondling fabric again. I’ve been checking up on friends and I hope that you all had a beautiful Christmas and a joyous holiday celebration. Here’s to a year filled with health, peace and lots of fabric!! I will be back tomorrow to tell the tale of the Closet of Shame falling on me a couple of weeks ago and frankly who can blame it.

Happy, Happy New Year!!! Your new house looks fantastic. What a way to begin a new year.

I , too, hope we hear more from you now that things have almost come to an end with the construction. I have missed your "voice".

It all looks great. I'm sure you're ready for it to be completed and get back to normal.

I had a long blog break over the holidays...didn't even send out any cards this year. Now I'm trying to get back into the blog routine.
