Playing in cement...

We've been working on beginning a restroom that will be added to my sewing studio....First we had to get permits, then we had to do plumbing and get finally today was the day to pour cement....did we have a big truck one out? No, not us! This was our setup.
A trailer with sand and gravel mix.... An old cement mixer we bought years ago from my Dad, who bought it even further back from my uncle....and a 55 gallon drum to hold water for mixing! Sounds like work you say? Well, we had minions in the form of 2 grandkids to help... Ben and Cara...
The stories they'll have to tell!

Roll, Roll Cotton Boll

It's finally in the frame! I'm having trouble with the border flaring because of the bias pieced border, and doing total free motion while floating the top was a mistake.... But it's definitely a learning experience!
