The kitchen is done !!!

The kitchen is finally finished !!!!  Several of you have asked to see finished pictures, so here they are.......

I ended up refinishing the cabinets in a little darker shade, which really looks nice with the tumbled marble back splash we chose.

Between leaning over the counters to install and grout the back splash, applying 3 coats (and polishing between each coat) of sealer, and then 4 days of  refinishing all the cabinets........I could barely lift my arms.  John laughed at me one night as I was making a futile attempt at taking a few stitches.  I guess I did look kind of pitiful.

One last little picture of some of the edible birds I made for the Easter dinner we attended.......they were really fun and easy to do.  The only problem was finding storage room for all 50 of them to cool and set.  Thank goodness for extra fridges in the basement !!

Well, I've taken up enough of your time......back to designing mode for me !  May you all take a stitch when you can !!


  1. Your remodel is beautiful. Lots of work and darn well worth it. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Congratulations! It looks so fresh and pretty. Now you can stitch till your heart's content.

  3. Love the idea of a tray. Both projects you presented to the guild are beautiful.
