With as much head banging that went on with thus quilt, it's gonna be **for me**!
it's absolutely stunning! A masterpiece. How do people come up with these designs! It boggles my mind.
The rooms are big. You will have plenty of room.
Still waiting for a couple of registrations that I know were requested. When they are here, Carolyn will post the list.
I hope your day filled with emotions up and down had some wonderful surprises in store throughout!! Those kinds of days are bittersweet!
I know you were very excited about finding and obtaining this kit. As always you've been obsessed and a very fast stitcher! It is wonderful but I'm kind of amazed you are not blind yet!!
If I may share some significant news and a milestone for DH and me...
Well... yesterday was BIG for DH and me as we met with our Builder to go over their recommendation of products and choices with costs that added up to a final build budget for the house. DH did some serious tax estimates for the sale of our CA home and then we analyzed the rest of our numbers as best we can. So today we let our Builder know we are ready to push the GO button! Permits will immediately be applied for with the County and other steps be put in motion! I may have a new, permanent sewing room in a year or so! Just had to share with someone(s)... thanks.
very exciting. just try to keep a sense of perspective on the process. You will have the advantage of being able to watch them closely and hopefully catch mistakes quickly. But know they will happen (speaking as a former remodeling supervisor). Nothing is perfect and as long as you go into it with the attitude of being willing to compromise, you May come out of it with a bit of sanity and perhaps sense of humor. The subs are not intentionally trying to drive you crazy but it might seem that way at points.

Have you SEEN my glasses??? LOL!
What a satisfying milestone to achieve!
Having said that, you know from your previous remodel projects that it is two steps forward, one step backwards due to circumstances you had no idea even existed. But, simply persevere and it will get done!
