The correct granite arrived at my house on Tuesday. I love it. It goes so nicely with my cherry cabinets. And it is THE correct granite, the granite I have now had to approve in person, twice. At least they got it right this time.
On Wednesday they installed my sink and faucet!!!!! Okay I know I am overly excited but a sink to use in the kitchen, I am thrilled. The garbage disposal broke when the plumber removed it so it was another day before we actually had a functioning sink. I was in Orlando at my sons swim meet when it was fully installed, so when I returned home at 12:30 AM, the first thing I did was turn on this faucet. Fun, fun, fun I'll tell you after all this time without running water in my kitchen.
While at the meet I received 4 calls from my tile guy. There has been a mix up, not enough border tile ordered, ten more days.......... whatever just give me somewhere to wash my dishes and put on a pot of water and I am happy. What is ten more days at this point?
The tile will go here, too. But for now we get to look at this.
The electrician comes tomorrow to fix all of these.
My bathroom is almost finished. The painter comes tomorrow to paint this room, and touch up all the hundreds of places in need of serious help after this renovation. Some of them were in need of serious help before the renovation, but now they look even worse.
My laundry room is finished. New floors and cabinets.
My new kitchen floors look great against the cherry cabinets.
And last but not least I have finished my last Rustic Autumn Shawl from Knit Purl Gurl. I made this out of Red Heart Boutique Treasure and I have to say I am not in love with the yarn. It looks beautiful but the yarn splits a lot. So I would not use this yarn again.
This shawl is a Christmas present for my son's swim coach. She is an amazing woman and has done so much for him. I wanted to make her something special, something she would have forever to remember us all by. I can never thank her enough for healing him mentally and physically, but I can knit love into this shawl, hopefully she will feel it when she wears it.
This is finished project number 44 for me for the year. Woo Hoo!
