For some reasons, I just cannot get in the basement and get some quilts long armed. I never seem to have a big enough chunk of time.
We had the upstairs living area floors refinished, and then we painted all the walls and ceilings and then I had Easter dinner. I feel I have been living among boxes and chaos. I forced myself one afternoon this week to work on a quilt that has been ready to go for a while. I only have a little way to go. I will try later today to get it done and off and the Jack's Basket baby quilts on.
One result of painting the walls and moving furniture is that we replaced an old hutch that was kind of colonial (sent it to Restore- a Habitat for Humanity store) with an Amish made one. It is black and has elm doors, drawer fronts and top. We had to go to Ohio to pick it up.
It looks real good where we put it against the new grey green paint. My husband has to make a couple of floating shelves above it, but until then my batik colorwash has a place to shine.
