Some Serious Catching Up

Hi everybody and how is it going?  I have to say it: Long time no see!  I have immersed myself in all the going-ons lately and I went longer than a month without posting.  I missed you! 

First off, I want to share a giveaway that I won that is near and dear to my heart.  You know how I am always raving about the Friday night Sew In?  Well I participated in May and Heidi picked my name to give the above prize to.  I felt honored because that concept has just been such a thrill to me and to be lucky enough to win a prize by one of the sponsors was very special and I am hoping the binding tool will help me with one of my puzzles of sewing-the binding!  How did Heidi know?!  Thank you again Heidi. 

I mentioned last we spoke that I wanted to organize my HUGE collection of fat quarters and scraps because they were a mess.  Do you agree they were a mess?

Well, they aren't a mess anymore!  I put a movie on and tried to sort them by color group and I was pretty happy with what I accomplished

I just wish I could bring myself to toss more.  I have issues with that!  Now that I am off from school for the Summer, I am hoping to organize several "problem areas" in my home.  I am really optimistic that my two sons will participate in totally overhauling their rooms.  I can hope can't I? 

Now to give you a peek at how my kitchen is coming. 

First, my husband put in my new cabinet section when they were delivered.  He was on vacation but I think that poor guy never sat down let alone relaxed!  At this point, I could see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Then he put the floor down which made a huge difference.

My Corian counter top is being delivered and installed Tuesday, so it is my husband's plan to work on the back splash this coming weekend.  Where you see the red plastic on the cupboard, there will be a bar sink and the double sink will be in the same place as my existing one under the window.  We chose to get the molded sinks in the counter top and I am excited.  Next week, I will hopefully have some "pretty much completed" kitchen pictures to post.  It has been a long haul since April 13, but it is finally coming together. 

Perhaps the most important news to share is that my youngest son graduated high school June 22nd.  It was wonderful and I couldn't be more proud of him.  I don't share alot of personal information about my family on here but I just want to tell you he has Aspergers and a learning disability and I was just choked up with pride when I thought about how hard he has worked and what he has accomplished.  He is going to attend our local community college in the fall with the hopes of becoming a Vet Tech.  I have no doubt he can do it.  He is amazing. 

Well, have a great week.  I have some projects I want to work on for my new kitchen.  I have to sneak in my craft room and find the time.  We are having a big graduation party for our son in a couple of weeks, so things are hectic.  Take care.   Nancy
