Keeping Busy on a Rainy Wednesday

A busy Wednesday.   I spent the first 15 minutes of today doing one block of this Disappearing Nine Patch.  It is a kit from our guild and is intended to be donated to a long-term care facility.  I am planning on making one of these nine patch block every day, so that I can have it done by the end of May.  I am cutting the blocks and sewing them together as I go, because these are the only fabrics in this quilt and I don't have to worry about the layout.
I am also working on the next section of my hexie Wannabe Quilt.  Haven't worked much on this quilt over the past few days.  There just seems to be too much happening around here.  I'll show you what I mean........

My kitchen got worked on yesterday.  The guys were here for 13 hours!  But look at how much is done!  I love it.  My nephew is doing an amazing job!  Hopefully we will get a few more rain days and he will come back and finish the cabinets.
Then the counter people will have to come and take measurements for the counter top.  That blue on my fridge is just the plastic protection.  I haven't removed it yet.  I want to wait until all the work is done so that the fridge won't get damaged.
Two of the cupboards on the top don't have doors.  We ordered this cabinet without the wood panels  so that I can make a couple of stained glass inserts for them.  They will have glass shelves and a couple of lights so that the stained glass will 'light up'.

And last but not least is my Thimbleberries project for today.  It is Thimbleberries Sew Day and I am joining Barb so that I can finish this one.  The entire centre is done in rail fence blocks.  The blocks are set on point and there are triangles along the sides with appliqued apples.  Right now I have nowhere to put this quilt so that you can see it all.  When I have more space I will take a better photo.

Yay! Almost a kitchen!! The stained glass will be a wonderful accent, and a part of you in the kitchen.

I'm glad to see that you are finally getting your kitchen together. Hopefully this will mean that soon you will have a functioning kitchen and can get the rest of your house back in order.
