A Little Quilting and a Little Plumbing

Yesterday, I worked on a cute little baby quilt for my friend and customer, Karen. There are little cowboy boots in the black fabric, some brands, stars, and other cute fabrics. This one went quickly! Today I will try to finish both of the patriotic-themed quilts made for soldiers at Camp Lejeune, NC. I have had them since the Carolina Long-arm Quilt Show back in late September, and need to turn them in on Friday! Both are small and should be do-able in one day.

On a non-quilt-related topic, I am so happy with my new kitchen faucet! Our old one has leaked out the base at times since we built this house. Finally, DSH recently decided to fix it with a new O-ring, and it developed a non-stop drip. He is a wonderful fix-it man, working on everything from brakes to Gammills, but is Not a Plumber. I kept a pitcher underneath the tap, and used that water for my plants, dog water dish, etc. Fortunately for us, we have a connection in the high-end plumbing fixture market. My sons often joke that I can brag, "One of my boys sells toilets, and the other sells tampons!" (Manager of a chain drugstore.) Well, the toilet-selling one helped us select a nice new kitchen faucet kit. It has a little dish soap dispenser on the left, and a sprayer on the right. Our old sprayer had not worked in about ten years.

Anyway, Stacy the Plumber came over to once again rescue us from DSH's plumbing mishaps, and got the new fixtures installed.

Much better, yes?

Your banner is great.
And your new faucets are very nice looking. Quite an improvement.

I love the faucets - but I love the little quilt that keeps popping up in your blog that's hanging over the sink more!!
