As You Wish...

 Every one of the comments I received yesterday asked for daily status
updates on our remodeleing  project, so here goes! Yesterday was spent
 moving stuff very important supplies and furniture out of what will 
now be referred to as the "old studio". You can still see there's more to do.
 We shopped for and purchased our choices for flooring for the two rooms
we'll be transforming over the next couple of weeks. We were told that a
special order for one of the rooms may delay us by a couple of weeks, but
I'm optimistic that things won't take that long to arrive for installation.
 Corgi snuffled. Corgi approved.
 You may remember that these cabinet doors used to have Cheri Blum
art decoupaged to each one. I spent last night removing the art because
it's more "girly" than how the room will look when it all redecorated.
 See? Clean and shiny...just like new!
 Still more to do...no Aleve or Tylenol required last night. Instead,
I went to Handsome's final North Port Concert Band concert and let
the music soothe any sore muscles. It was a great way to end the day.

Still a lot to accomplish today if I want to paint over the weekend 
(which I do!). I'll be back with more photos tomorrow.

Let The Chaos Commence...

 A project of this magnitude requires significant planning. 
Additionally, there was much discussion as Handsome and 
I made this decision together.  Now it's time to put our plan into action.
 That's right, boys and girls. There are going to be some changes made!
 Have you heard the word "blivet" before?
It means ten pounds of you-know-what in a five pound bag.
 That's my studio....
 and bath closet adjacent to the studio...and a few other places, too.
 Stuffed to the gills and needing a serious makeover.
 This is the only clue I'll share today about the next ten days.
There won't be much "creating" in the studio during this time. I'll
actually be busy creating a new studio space with Handsome's help.

Handsome and I are heading out first thing today to choose new
flooring for two rooms. Then, we'll be selecting paint colors as we
prepare to roll up our sleeves, bring in the flooring experts and get
this transformation started. I suspect I'll go to bed each night with
a smile on my face, but perhaps a Tylenol and heating pad, too.

Are you interested in seeing my progress each day on this project,
or would you rather have me post other creative ideas while I tame
this chaos? I always love to entertain you (so does Tag), but I'm not
sure if you'd like to see this whole process as I completely transform 
two rooms in our home. Please let me know what you'd like to see.

I'm so ready for this wonderful metamorphosis to begin!

Guild Night...

Pauline's Scrappy Quilt
 Last night was our monthly guild meeting, and I took lots of photos.
I'm going to share my favorites today, but you'll see more creations later.
 Our member, Jettie, has a friend who pieces her quilts up north and
sends them south to be quilted by Susan Slaton. This is one of the 
two shared by Jettie last night before she ships them back to her
northern friend. I really liked the blocks and the color play on this one.
 This was the other one Jettie showed for her friend. The circles
are hand appliqued'. You know I love this one, don't you? I might
have to file this idea away to make one for myself. So much fun!
 Marti showed the result of a recent art quilt class she took.
It's a wonderful little piece, and I really hope she'll make more
like this one. I think she's found her niche. I love the colors, too.

I don't know if I've said this before or not, but I really enjoy being
a member of our Disconnected Piecers Quilt Guild. Our members
are so talented, and we really become friends. They're a great group
of beautiful women. As I said, I took lots of pictures. Every quilt was
a work of love by its creator. These are just a very few. More later.

I hope your day is filled with happy moments and creative endeavors.
Thanks for visiting. I'll be back tomorrow.
