Wonder where I've been?

Nope, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...

But I haven't managed to sew much either.

You see, a trip to IKEA ended up with this... Guess that is why hubby hates for me to shop!  LOL!

Boxes, boxes everywhere and not a place to walk!
This old kitchen and family room was about to get a big makeover.
Might have been nice if I would have cleared the counters for it's swan song photo, right!

The sky is falling...
The walls are going...
To make way
Added back a wall or two
Put a hole in the ceiling over the fireplace!
And we are ready to roll...

Things are starting to look a little different now.
Here is what it looks like this morning. The doors go on today.
The pantry is done accept the knobs
I do love all my storage.
Like I said, I haven't sewn much, but I did steal away a few hours this past weekend, to work on my swap table runner for the Picnic Tables with Style swap!

Yes, it's about to go in the mail to my secret swap partner.
And with only a few days to spare.
The only other project I have managed to work on is a quilting project for my cousin. My long arm started acting up and ended up in the shop for repair.
While I knew I should stop, I didn't and needless to say what took me 2 hours to put in, ended up taking 3 days to rip out!   ARRRRGH, don't you love it when you know you are wrong and continue anyway? 
Enough said on that little project.
I'll tackle that again when the house is done!
