Sheet Rock is Almost Done

I have lots of pictures.  Went over and walked through the house this afternoon, after the quilt show.  I am just amazed at how fast the sheet rock has gone up.  Every thing is done except the gazebo ceiling.  I think that is going to be challenging.

Did shopping today and stopped by and spent an hour at the quilt show.  Could have stayed all day, but Lynn was slowing baking in the car, so alas I had to leave.  Next year I promise to spend at least 2 days just learning all I can about making quilts.  The quilts were simply amazing.  I am a novice quilter, but am in awe of the talent out there.  Did buy a project to work on in the evening.  That is the only way I can control my eating is by putting something in my hands that I don’t want to get food on.  I think that is the worst part about dieting, is to find something to keep my hands busy.  Most of my eating is mindless in front of the TV in the evening.  As a bonus I usually end up with an acceptable quilt.  I like sewing on my lap, so most of my quilts are hand-stitched.  Just finished one for my oldest son, and have been looking for a suitable project for my youngest son.  The Walla Walla Quilt Show was a big success and so amazing.

Back to the porch posts after my little field trip to town.  They are glued-up and one is sanded and ready for the Bondo.  Did get a side done before I was thoroughly exhausted and quit for the night.  Made a healthy supper and updating my blog, then killing time until “Outlander” comes on.  Only 2 more episodes this year, but will get to watch the next 8 episodes after the first of the year.  My favorite book series, made into a Starz series.  Hugely successful.

Back to the house, just wanted to let you know that there are a few distractions from working on the house.  Very few.  I said I would rest in December.  I don’t think so, I will just be moving indoors.  Can’t believe all the painting I will have to do.  Maybe a room a month.  What do you think?  The trim will be fluted and rosettes which will all be painted white, and I have to choose colors for the rooms.  My granddaughter has asked to decorate one of the rooms as she wants to be an interior designer.  So when she comes to visit in December, we will pick a room and let her have a go at it.  I think that will be fun.  We can go bargain shopping (as I expect to be broke) and see where it takes us.

Okay, now for some pictures:

Looking down from the stairs to the front door.  I'm thinking that for the door to go with everything else, it may need to be painted white.
