Busy, busy

Not much quilting this past week ….. DH and I were out buying furniture at IKEA. I just love the cottagey look and our new bookcases fit right in with my quilts and quilt ladder.

This is the view when you walk into our home.
The view from my chair. Not bad, eh?
There is still painting to be done (walls, baseboards and coffee table), but this is a good start. Company was coming this weekend and there was no time to clean the crystal before transferring them to these cabinets. When we move these out to paint, I will do some purging and clean then. We just wanted to get these assembled and the old pieces donated before the weekend.
Have a great day!
