Friday Sew In and a Beautiful House (pic heavy)

Hi folks,

I was so proud of my special quilt that I made for my granddaughter, Ginny, that I wanted to leave the post up for a while, but I'm back now.

I've been working on Brutis the Cat freebie from Bronwyn...isn't he cute?

I've also worked on my zig zag quilt, but I'll post about that separately.

I'm currently working a temporary position for a residential builder in a beautiful new community. The job (if I can call it that) is very boring, as I pretty much sit all day house sitting. Fortunately, they don't mind if I continue to job hunt via the web on my new little netbook I bought with my house cleaning money. I could easily justify the purchase due to the fact that I sit for 6 hours a day doing nothing productive. Anyway, this development is incredible and the model I get to sit in part of the time is exactly my taste, so I thought I'd share some lovely pictures. The house is 2,400 sq. ft. and has three floors with a wrap around porch, a separate back porch and a detached garage. I just took pictures of part of the house, but you'll drool when you see them. Here ya go...enjoy!

Main living area - open concept. The dining area is right behind the sofa.

Looking into house from front door. There is a dining room just to the right, but I didn't take a picture of it as it's being used as the office for sales.

The master bedroom - so pretty..

The master bath - it's big but not humongous. The color is my favorite shade of green and I got the paint list from the builder. I'll be painting my bathroom this green and using some of the other room colors as well.

This is the smaller bedroom and I love the color of blue. It doesn't show accurately here but it's beautiful.

The other bedroom...

The attic has been finished as a top suite. I'd definitely make this my sewing and craft area...

This is the back porch, which the living area looks out onto. I'd live out here.

This is the side porch...

Ramp leading to the yard and garage...

A shot of part of the back of the house. Doesn't it remind you of something you'd see on Cape Cod?

The couryard between the back porch and garage...

Entry to the garage...

A small yard on the side. These houses are built close together like an old neighborhood...all are different looking with front porches.

And I love this gate!

I have a busy week coming up as my sister and I are going to the big quilt show in Hampton Roads, VA Thursday...can't wait!!!

Have a good day everybody!

Phyllis, the quilt is one I'm sure your granddaughter will treasure for a lifetime. Talk about a lot of work! Good luck with your new project!

What a beautiful home. The kind of home I would like but doubtfully will ever have. I can't complain though, most people never have a picture perfect house like that. Even the people who live in them!
