All I managed to stitch on the Toy Tree this week was that lower branch that has a little blue heart, a little yellow car and a bunny. Not surprising because I am living in........
.........complete chaos. Tell me please, why is the mess getting bigger? You've think we'd be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel but it seems to be getting worse every day.
I did get all four of the piano key borders finished. I'd love to lay it out but I can't find the space.
I am also happy to report that the naughty dishwasher is installed for good as are all of the base cabinets. Finally. Yesterday I discovered the reason why it wouldn't fit. We were pushing it too far back. Somehow we missed the part about it being about a half inch in front of the cabinets so the steam won't damage them. I had Daughter send me a photo of hers and sure enough. It sits out a bit. Now the thing wiggles out just fine because the gasket is on the outside.
And in other kitchen news.........the new slide in range showed up on time. That's a first. They even installed it for us free of charge. I am not using it yet. Not until we get a counter and a sink. I'm not gunking it up in this mess we are living in. And let me tell you, I cried, yes, cried, when they carted my old stove away. I hated the thing but when it was time to go I teared up. I had cooked a lot of meals on it. It had gotten me through some of my darkest pandemic days. I felt like I was losing an old friend.
