Just a little peek.........

At the carpet samples:
Have chosen the middle one for the family room, all 504 square feet of it.  Deposit paid and hope to have it installed the first week of November.

Four years after we purchased these, dh finally got around to putting up the three wall lights in the family room.  We have the matching table lamp and ceiling light.  What a difference they have made to the room.  We paid Just over $40 each for them instead of close to $90.


As the floor is hardwood from 1974 in the family room, it only had quarter round wood edging it.  So we are going to add baseboard/skirting board.  Here it is laying in the family room ready for dh to put down.  We luckily had this left over from another project.
Starting another project with this lovely material.  I will post more about it next month.

I finally got the crib skirt (polka dot material) and the tab top valance sewn for the baby's room.  Nothing like leaving it until last minute. 
One job we did over the weekend was to pull out the upper kitchen cabinets, as the guys are coming to pick them up today to finish them.  While we were out on the weekend we picked up these tiles for the back splash from Lowes.
Lots going on around here, but we are slowly making progress.

I so love the fabric for the tab curtains! Some people just do better if they have a little bit of pressure....the other material looks like good kitchen curtain material!

You have a whole lot on your plate!!!! Love the things for the baby room, can't wait to see photo's of your new princess. Intresting fabric you are working with, could it be for aprons? Maybe a table runner?

Good carpet choice Gill - not too dark and not too pale.....it could hide a multitude of evils should it require it!
