So, as promised, here are some pictures of the house I'm buying. It is a cute little house built in 1940, and is 2 bedrooms/one bath (~950 sq. ft).
|I really don't like the vinyl tiles that they put on the bottom half of the wall here.|
|The bathroom from in front of the tub.|
|The living room with the original hardwood floors. I need to find someone to make some more shelves for the built in bookcase.|
|Another view of the Living room. |
I love these hardwood floors!
|The kitchen. The door here goes to the backyard. I plan to paint in here before moving in as well. I plan to put a table where the refrigerator is currently.|
|The front bedroom. It gets all the sunshine in the afternoon.|
|The back bedroom. I'm hoping that it gets sunlight in the morning...I don't know because I've never been there before noon.|
|View from my (the back) bedroom toward the living room. There really isn't any wasted space in here!|
My niece has to work sometimes on the weekends, and I'm in the house with both her and my animals. So, I will sometimes send her pictures of her dog to cheer her up...These are my most recent attempts, in which the first catches us a bit off-guard.
|Taking selfies with dogs is HARD, and I hate being licked!|
|And when you get the dog to sit still long enough, they are often a bit annoyed with the whole process!|
I've been working on this quilt for my niece for a very, very long time (I think "working" is probably much too strong a word--I have had the project in my closet, accusing me of slacking, is more accurate). So, I promised my niece to have it done for her birthday this year, with the full intention of using Spring Break to marathon quilt and git 'er done. That didn't happen, so the quilt is still not finished, although I'm a little bit closer than I was at the beginning of March. At this point, the goal is to have it completely done by Christmas. As long as I can keep the momentum going, that is actually doable. I've had to take a bit of a break to get caught up on grading, but this weekend will see me working on it further. I will post more pics as I continue to work on it.
