why....

why am i the only one in the house that knows how to add a roll of toilet paper to the holder?

why am i the only one that remembers it's trash day?

why am i the only one that can "hear" the dog get into something he isn't supposed to?  like the trash can

why do "they" think i carry an inventory of the fridge in my head?

Just a few of the things I think about while doing this....

block one

block two

the start of block three... (no I didn't sew that crooked, the lighter fabric is folded in half...
This block is called Fox Star...I am pretty sure that it was named after the quilt shop and probably has another name, although I don't know it.  This has Y seams and I will do this block to learn that technique...it will not however end up in the table runner as I don't like samplers and won't have three different blocks...
(BTW, did you know that according to language rules you are to spell out numbers from one to ten and starting at 11 you can use numbers....yea, me neither)

So today is errand day and laundry day and getting all ready for Quilt Guild tomorrow...  I need to cut out the rest of that block so I can sew while I listen....


And of course this weekend I will be at the "other house"... we are still working in the master bathroom..this weekend will be vanity, sink, faucets and toilet and a door... and probably some painting...

And we are thinking of floors right now...my sewing room and the laundry area are connected by a long hall.  We don't want to spend the money on Laminate flooring and when we started looking at vinyl we were shocked that it cost just as much to have someone install it as it is to buy it.  We can't install vinyl...we have done it once in a small bathroom and we struggled...we got it done, but I know we can't handle 700 sq feet of vinyl...  Any thoughts??  We have been looking at this kind of floor.. do you think it would work?  We actually did this to our garage floor here...and it worked out really well...and five years later it is still looking great even with my car sitting on it every day...

so i guess i need to get those pieces cut...

I ask myself those same questions all the time, especially the one about the fridge! LOL And yes, actually I did know the thing about the numbers. I learned that from a writer friend of mine! :0)

I, too, knew about the number-writing rule, but I don't always follow it. LOL As for the floor, I looked at that link and the gallery of photos. I don't know.....you have put so much thought and care into everything you chose in the house so far. I think you have to ask yourself if you'd honestly be happy with that inside there for your flooring in those areas or would you always wish you had done something else? If you would wish you'd done something else, then I think it would bother you once the house is completed that you'd settled for less than you wanted. Of course, that's just my thoughts on it.

The hand piecing looks wonderful. You are becoming a hand piecer. Good on you! See you tomorrow.

Have a super great weekend.

It's a good thing people can't hear lots of the things I think about when I quilt! I ask many of those same questions, and I'm constantly figuring the math for what percent of the quilt I have done with each block.

Nancy, we put a vinyl press and peel floor in our bathroom. They were 12" squares, but I think you can get bigger ones. They look almost like ceramic tile, but wash great. Wouldn't change it. Good luck with whatever you decide.
