Not much sewing around here

The time for getting new flooring is almost here.   This is my tiny living room that no longer has that carpet on the floor.  My husband tore it out yesterday along with all the tiles in front of the front door.  

This is the dining area where the flooring is being replaced tomorrow.  I will be confined to my bedroom because the hall is getting done too.    At last. . . the upheaval in the house is almost over.

I've moved my floor hoop and a chair into the bedroom along with a heart stuffing project.  There is a TV as well and I have four books checked out from the library.

This is the basement that won't receive it's makeover until Thursday.  But, after Thursday I can put all the stuff back into the closets, clean off my sewing table that now has all the dishes from my pie safe.  I can replace the coats in the coat closet, put things back onto the linen closet floor, and the furniture can come in so there is a place to sit down on something other than a stool or a folding chair.  My backside aches from sitting on hard surfaces.  (I know, I'm really spoiled.)

The weather has been unusual for May.  It snowed on Sunday, a big slushy wet cold snow.

The lilac above and the wisteria below were shivering in the cold an the unexpected layer of snow.

Today we are getting rain and the mountain tops are in shadows and mists.

The slight sunshine on top of the rain is making the streets shine.  

Lori at Humblequilts  is talking about doing a Sew-a-long later this year.  She will be making the Oak Hills Farm quilt (below) by Lori Smith if you want to join along.

I'm making progress on my All Around Town quilt and there is a progress picture above in my sidebar and below.

Hopefully more quilting in my next post.

I just finished having my main level done in hard woods. OMG what an ordeal but totally worth it. A dream come true!

So much turmoil but the end result will make it so worthwhile. We desperately need new floors in the kitchen, dining area and laundry-pantry room, but don't have the wherewithal to accomplish all the heavy moving of appliances and furniture that would need to be done to ready the space. The next owner will have to do it!

Home improvements create such a lot of upheaval, but in the end, things are so much better! Won't it be wonderful to get everything back to its rightful place?! I hope you enjoy the time in your bedroom. I wouldn't be able to resist a nap in your circumstances.
Snow! In May?!!!! I hope none of your plants were ruined.
I remember your All Around Town. I think it has that wonderful cat with the arched back in it, right?

You will have to show us your new flooring. Home projects like that are so disruptive but worth it in the end.

How exciting for you, but oh what a feeling of discombobulation you must have - lol! Our son and DIL are going to have to replace carpet in their big 2-story house before they sell, and oh they are dreading it.
I checked out Lori's blog and I sure might be interested in that sewalong. I found the pattern and have it bookmarked - the quilt is gorgeous!

I hope the worst of your upheaval is done and that you are happy with the results. I like your photo of the shining, wet street a lot.
