My work in progress, one coat done, and the end wall is not getting done at all. The plumber has been and moved the taps and added pipes for the dishwasher. The wall needs to be replaced under the sink, because it was not a pretty sight. Must have been a major leak in that wall sometime in the past.
This is my painting trousers, and as you can see it is where I wipe my fingers if I get paint on them!
And this is samples of my cupboards, benchtops, wall tiles and the cupboard handles. I am looking forward to how it all comes together now. A trailer load of "kitchen" will arrive here on Friday evening, ready for action on the weekend. I am told there will be a day of electrical stuff to happen before any cupboards get put in, The stove is being moved from the back wall to the side on, so that is major work first.
Yesterday after I painted the kitchen ceiling, I went to the car wash and cleaned my car, which was a long overdue task. Then I ventured up the highway to the Cockatoo Downs Farmstay retreat to visit a group of ladies who were there for a sewing weekend. They had lots of projects to work on, and had the whole hall to themselves which meant plenty of space to spread out. A few photos follow of what they were working on.
I think it's time to do the second coat now, and hopefully finish in an hour so that I can get to church this morning. Will be back later in the week with more quilt photos.
The weather is supposed to be very hot for the whole week, so I will need to be very productive in the early mornings before I wilt in the afternoon. Tomorrow I am up the highway again to Murray Bridge (2 hours away) to attend the funeral of my uncle. And I need to pick up the kitchen tiles while I am there.
Keep cool this week.http://motherpatchwork.blogspot.com.au/
