Retreat (woohoo) and other news

 It's been a busy week working on my home improvment projects and just cleaning. I think the bathroom is finished now. I hung moulding around the ceiling (very poorly, I might add, but it is done, which counts as something, right?) so had to fill the nail holes and paint so I painted the cupboard in there white too. I hadn't painted it to begin with, but once I had the rest done, I knew I should have. I really like it. You know how you keep working on something til you say...ahhh...that's it! That's how I feel about it now.
The mirror hangs over the sink and the cupboard hangs over the toilet, just to give you an idea of this bathroom. It's small!
You can see the corner of the cupboard.
This is the view from the kitchen. The sink stops the door from opening all the way.  It's small, but handy to have. Our full bathroom is upstairs. I didn't include the beautiful new tile floor in this picture but it is still beautiful and still loving it. I applied the second coat of grout sealer to it yesterday. My sister says I need to seal it 3 times.I always do what she says.
I am leaving later today to spend the weekend at the Farmer's Dotter Quilt Retreat. There are 7 of us going to this bed and breakfast type retreat. She will cook all the meals while we sew....what could be better than that? We are all bringing our own projects to work on, but may take a little break Saturday to check out Quilts and Other Notions in Creston. We could run out of thread or something....

I like the cabinet painted white. I bet it feels so fresh and new in the bathroom. Just think you are probably good for at least 10 years on the room now.
