The Black & White quilt, fabric buckets, and cross stitch
Even though I am still a bit tired, I tried last evening to get a few small things done. I stitched around the star in the black and white quilt. I plan on doing echo free motion stitching to get to the center of the star.

I was still really tired yesterday so when I got home I washed some dishes, made some chicken soup, and watched a couple shows I had taped. This morning I was up early enough to wind some bobbins and get my machine set up to start quilting the black and white star quilt. I still have not received the backs of the t-shirts yet. The mother had a health issue and is recovering so it may be a couple weeks until I get them.

Last night I worked until 9:30 to get as much of the floor installed as I could. I got the area were the new water heater was going which I had to do since the plumbers were coming the next morning. Here is behind the furnace before I got the baseboard installed. You see that thin white pipe? That is the condensate line and it is just in the way! I got the parts and the first thing they did was reroute it.

Floor progress, mac & cheese, daffodils
After thinking about the problem I was having with the floor - which was the planks not lining up straight - I decided last night to remove the two rows I had installed Tuesday night and beat the begabbers out of the remining floor to get it straightened up. I needed to move the floor about 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch. Thank goodness I was able to do that and then proceeded to put the flooring back in place using adhesive. The floor that is glued down feels so much better under the foot. I got two more rows installed until I had enough of that for one night. Here is where I am right now. I have the next row already laid out.
crap stuff I have loaded on these shelves.

Pillow case, backup sewing machine, and flooring progress
I got the fabric cut for that pillowcase my sister wants and have it partially sewn together. There is no timeline on this, so it gets done when it gets done.

T-shirt picture and the big floor project
I remembered to take a picture of the t-shirts on the design wall.

T-shirt quilt progress, yardwork, and a happy camper
I forgot to take a picture of the t-shirts hanging on the design wall, but I will show you some challenges with the few shirts I have left to interface. Here is the one sleeve area of this t-shirt. If I would try and trim the shirt to the design there would be very little background area. They had cut off the sleeve and just left a tiny bit that I had to remove.
