I vaguely remember my sewing room

I haven't been in the sewing room, except to pass through, for days and days now. But the family room floor is coming around nicely. This is what it looked like at the approximate halfway point last night. We're about 3/4 of the way done now. Oy, my aching knees and back. (Remember that Claire!)

After the floor, the crown molding and baseboards have to go up before we can move the furniture back in to its permanent location(s). Maybe by the end of the long weekend, we'll have a real family room again and I might be ready to cut out the capris that have been waiting.

Thanks everyone for all of the nice anniversary wishes and comments!


  1. It's going to look beautiful, Debbie. I'm not so lucky - I'm going to have to hire someone to install my floor for me - for precisely the reasons you warn about (back, knees). The hardest part on my end is finding someone reliable and economical to do the work!

  2. Lookin' good - very good! I plan to put that down in my sewing room later this spring. (I hope my knees and back will hold!)

  3. Don't feel bad, if it wasn't for my "sewing room" also being my bedroom, I wouldn't have seen it in about 2 weeks!

  4. It is looking wonderful Debbie - awe the problem with home remodeling, makes it tough to sew & do it at the same time. I did have to lay new floor upstair, but stripped & re-did them, so feel you pain in a different way - at least you won't have the fumes! Look forward to seeing the finished floor along with the capris! - LauraM62


Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
