The Bathroom....Days 4-8

So. I pull in to the driveway from Quilt Market on Monday evening and my husband says: "Go check out the bathroom!". I go into the house and there's 2 or 3 guys laying tile on the bathroom floor. Can I reiterate that this is a SMALL room? I can't see much of anything, but I can tell that there's tile. We go out to eat and then I rush off to Audrey's orchestra performance.

Tuesday, they grouted all the tile and it looks fabulous! Here's Audrey checking out the shower for size.



Here's a shot of both types of tile used....and yes! The walls are going to be red!


On another note, Quilt Market was good! I think attendance was down, but there was some great stuff there. The highlight for me was spending some time chatting with Jay McCarroll of Project Runway fame. Jay has designed fabric for FreeSpirit and it is too cute! A little bit weird, but cute, all the same.

Jay was very down-to-earth and we had a nice conversation. I asked him if it was a stretch to go from fashion design to fabric design. He said that he has always wanted to do fabric and was thrilled to be given this chance. The fabric line is still in the final stages of production and I think it will be available in early '09. It's quirky and fun and I just have to have some! My rep came to see me today and she doesn't even have sales samples yet, but will call me the minute she gets them.

Till tomorrow,
S.

I'm catching up on blogs after the move back to the US and was I surprised to see your red bathroom walls...I just painted my hallway bathroom red too! There was just too much beige in the house!

to jump from Project Runway to the quilt world, when this guy had his pick of paths to take, tells me what the money making potential must be, we quilters buy a lot!

Do you have an update on the bathroom? Looks fabulous so far! We're doing a new bathroom installation (in our "Barn/Cottage"), which I plan to document on our farm blog. Love your blog ~ looks like you have a very busy and interesting life :)
