And It Begins! :o)

The construction crew was here by 8am and all of a sudden there were trucks and lumber and a forklift and people!

Empty Garage (we did that part)   ;)

Taking the insulation down from the ceiling of the garage
Taking off the siding.

It is a gorgeous day out there and it looks like the weather will be good for a few days.  It is coldish but the sun is so strong that it is not unbearable.

Starting on the roof....(I would rather be a quilter....)  ;)
The view from the inside of the garage!
The side view

 On a quilty note...

LOVE this vintage quilt - it was hand appliqued down with running stitches and floss

We decided on the Popcorn edge to edge to make sure the delicate pieces stayed put.
And Superhero quilts!  There were 2 of them.  :)  Love this setting.  Straight Line Stipple quilting, edge to edge.

Oh, and check out the new webinar on the Handi Quilter site!  It shows how to use the new feet.  I didn't realize that I could also use them on the Fusion (and Avante)...for some reason I thought they could only be used on the Sweet 16!  Well...I think that Santa just may have to get them for my stocking.  ;)

This particular webinar is the December 2013 one and it should be clickable today some time.  The webinar was last Thursday but they always put them on the website the next Monday.  I plan on placing a Handi Quilter order within the week so if you local people would like me to add something to my order, just give me a holler.  I pay the shipping!  :)

Talk to you soon!  I am sure I will be continuing to bombard you with pictures of the addition.  ;)

P.S.  It is getting NOISY!  LOL!  So....I am going to bake.  :)
