Updates

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving Holiday! I for one, got tired out! There was cooking and pie making, working on my house, visiting with family, cleaning house, washing dishes ( I am sure everyone washed a lot of dishes, it seemed like an endless chore!), a little yarn shopping, Christmas planning, more work on my house, sewing, knitting Christmas presents and don't forget a bit of relaxing!!
 Finally I got a picture of the hall floor! Not bad for having two layers of linoleum, a half inch of tar paper and being a hundred years old. Just needs a bit of sanding and a coat of varnish. I also got all the staples out of the living/dinning room and the downstairs bedrooms. Now I just have to de-staple the stairs and the upstairs bedroom. I am not sure why carpet installers think they need so many staples to hold a carpet pad down.....
I also got a bit of sewing done! Almost finished with my flannel robe, just a bit more hand finishing and I will be ready to share it.

Now on to Christmas planning!!

  1. Your floors are going to be so pretty! It's amazing how they can come back to life with a little sanding and varnish! Love the little peeks you're showing us! Got my curiosity up!

  3. I tore up the old carpet in my downstairs a few years ago. I completely understand about the staples!

    1. I am sure carpet installers are the same everywhere.... It just drives me nuts no thinks of the holes they are making in the wood floors!
