Floors done!

It took longer than I expected, (10 days!) but our floor refinishing project has been completed!  Jerry wasn't too enthused about us doing the project - he said he would have been happy leaving the floors as they were, but after they were completed he admitted he really prefers the new color and finish. 

We have to wait for another 24 hours before any furniture can be returned to the room and we've been told we can't put rugs down for a week.  Apparently the texture of the rug can be imprinted in the finish. 

The timing for this work wasn't the greatest as I have been tied up working on our quilt show and Jerry has been working to get ready for the LeMons race - both events are being held this weekend.

I'm pleased to be able to share that my little whole cloth quilt was awarded a first place blue ribbon for its category.  Of course there were only 2 quilts IN the category so I had a 50/50 chance!

I'll try to post a photo of it with the ribbon soon.
