It has been a long process but Tuesday we will be moving finally. Then the unpacking will begin and setting up my new studio. I have done a bit of it in between but still a lot to do before I can begin working in there again. I thank you all for your patience during this huge undertaking.
To make things a bit more complicated my dear mother fell at home and broke her hip.
She had surgery and is doing fairly well considering her age but will need several months of therapy before being able to go home again. They will move her from the hospital to a health care facility called Rocky Knoll. My mother is a very independent person and also a private person so this is going to be a challenge for her and I hope she can adapt to being in this new situation for this length of time. She still lives in our family home out in the countryside and is used to the privacy she has there.
To make this even more complicated she has dementia and her short term memory is not good now. So this makes it an even bigger challenge.
So hopefully I will be able to get back to work soon and share more with you.

I am also very happy that some of my work is now in a Wisconsin hospital so very close by.

We did the kitchen backsplash tile. It was a first for me....she did it with Mark at their house about a year ago. It is not near as hard as you think and the cutting part is sort of
where quilting comes in when figuring out where to mark the tile to make the right cuts.
It is somewhat messy especially when cutting the tiles but all in all very rewarding. I am so happy with the results and can't wait until the appliances come in two weeks so we can finish the other wall. I need the microwave in to be sure how far up to go above the range.

Now to tackle the bedrooms and baths upstairs.
Jul 1, 2014
Whew! Tomorrow will finish dining room and then wash windows on this floor....and then it will be finished for new flooring and appliance delivery.
Will start painting upstairs next. It is all white....the white that builders paint it and only one bedroom was ever painted and that is the bright yellow one that is going to go. But first will do the Master and the Master bath as that is getting new floors and he is coming
on the 17th to do that so must get it finished before hand. Have plenty of time so that is good.
