Something New and Something Old

My kitchen is moving along........
The 'new' in this post is my new countertop that was installed on Monday.  It's called 'Silestone' and is a man made material made of quartz and some kind of binder.  It looks like stone, but it is actually much stronger.  Here is a close-up.


And the 'old' is a UFO that I started three years ago.  It is all hand pieced and appliqued.  I'll show you more when I have it done.

Love that countertop! Was it more cost efficient since its a manufactured stone product vrs say a granit? I really want stone countertops, but I think I am getting oogey laminate.

Love the counter. It was one of the colours I was looking. Once it is all finished you will enjoy being in your kitchen. The quilt is great also. Were do you find the time with your house turned upside down while there is construction in your kitchen???
