Turn down the volume!*

Don’t you just love it when there is a fabric that describes how you feel sometimes? Blah blah blah….
I finally pieced together the last five rows of my low volume quilt. It feels good to have that part done! I’m determined to chip away at my UFO list. And this is one quilt that I am looking forward to using.
There are all kinds of fabric in this one. Some of it I just LOVE and this is the perfect quilt for it. Others… well, they just needed to be removed from the stash… somehow. But as always in scrappy quilts, I think the uglies get lost between the lovelies. And it all becomes lovely.
The only place inside the house big enough to take a quick photo on a rainy day is inside the construction zone.
This is the state of our kitchen. It is coming along in the usual fashion, which feels like it is NOT fast enough. We are sick of the dust, the smells and the inability to cook healthy meals. We have a very small rotation of meals that go between the crock pot and our camp stove. It is getting old. And why oh why are the construction workers not here yet today?? This is the part that I really struggle with. Perfectly good daylight and no one is working! I know, they have to juggle the different tasks that need to get done. But still…. I will try to be patient.
* Not only a good quilt name, but what I do to the Internet when web sites have sound. For some reason I have a very low tolerance for added sound (music, ads, etc) on web sites. Off goes the volume.
