Just dropping in...

This is just another quick post to say I'm still here - alive and well.  Truthfully, Mr. Quilting Bug and I are still recovering from the renovations of our Master Bedroom.  I spent 6 hours yesterday applying energy saving window film to all of the windows in there and I hope not to step on another ladder for at least a month!  On the positive side, I haven't had to do any lunges for at least a week.

Current state of the bedroom
I'm not sure if it's because of the new paint color or that we don't have window coverings up yet or because of the furniture arrangement, but the bedroom feels twice as big as it used to.  Which is nice, because it used to feel kind of cluttered.  Now it feels huge!

Because of all the time spent on the renovation, I haven't done any quilting for over a week (except for a small bit of hand applique at night).  Last I left it, I had trapuntoed the Dresden Plates on this table runner and just started quilting them...

I'm going on a quilt retreat next week to Williamsburg where I hope to finish quilting this and work on a quilt for our bed.  My blogging will probably continue to be sporadic as I have a bunch of household tasks that have piled up and I'm also trying to get ready for the retreat.  But hopefully things will return to something more approaching normal after I return!

I think all the pets would prefer for us not to put up any type of window coverings.  They're all enjoying the large spots of sunshine they let in...

Until later...

  1. It is probably both the color and no window treatments that make it feel larger!

    I have started a blog for my quilts. So far only two posts, but I had to start somewhere.
