Cabinets - Day One
The painters just left. The house stinks...maybe stink isn't the right word...maybe very strong obnoxious odor would be the right words.
Looks more like a construction zone.
Most of today was spent prepping for tomorrow. Cleaned, sanded, and holds drilled for the knobs / handles. I'm leaving them the same color, just putting on a new finish (low gloss varnish).
It is currently 102 outside...the air conditioning and all the fans have been on all day.
I finally got all the pieces to the spools done today. I'm avoiding the iron, so the actual spools probably won't get made soon (need 100 of them). These are really really REALLY boring to make. Luckily I like the finished quilt which Temecula Quilt Company revealed today otherwise these spools were at serious risk of becoming a UFO.
I did some practice free motion quilting on my new Janome...I can't get the tension right so I think I'm going to set up my Bernina. Since I'll be banned to the sewing room again I'd like to get at least one of the wall hangings quilted tomorrow.
