NEW FLOOR AT LAST

The great day has arrived, my new floor is being laid today.
Annette came and did an enormous amount of moving for me,
I am just so grateful to her.
I hope I have these pictures in the right order...
This is before...



Grotty carpet....



I emptied this bookcase and put everything into carrier bags...



Masses of them...



It made it easier to move the stuff and hopefully!
I would remember what went where on the return journey...



Stuff got piled everywhere...



So much stuff...



One empty corner...



Into the bedroom...



loads of it went...



Stacks of it on the bed...



Cant get in there now...



Into the front room went the bookcases...



and my sewing table, Annette placed loads of books
under the table...



Quilts got put on the settee...



Hope no-one comes, that's the front door...



My white unit holding the tools for the day...



The bed was 'groaning' with stuff...



Even the window sills got used...



Clear room - well floor...
Carpet - you are soon to be history...



Oi! What you doing?



Can you believe it,
she found a book with a pattern she was looking for...



Ta da...



The NEW FLOORING



Aren't I smart now.
Big smile on my face.
Just got to put everything back now.
Actually, Annette and Pete put it all back,
I just have to put it all in the right places.
Hope you like my new floor - I do.
Thank you Pete,
Thank you Annette.

The flooring looks great but what a LOT of work to get everything out and then back in again! Hope you're organized and back to sewing soon.

Hi Everyone,
I really love my new floor, it is taking ages getting everything sorted though. I am getting withdrawal symptoms from the lack of sewing. Tomorrow I will sew instead of sort. :-) Jan
