The plan was to remove the baseboard carefully and then dry out the sheetrock.
The sheetrock was so soggy that it was just caving in behind the saw.
That's Michael-Row-Your-Boat on the left and Nason on the floor.
You can see how the water ended up in the formal dining room.
Sure am glad my carpet is folded inside out as they love to put all their stuff on it.
And this is it for the day. A plastic wall with a dehumidifier inside it to suck all the moisture out of the back of the cabinets. It will run until next Monday.
Wonder if I could use those poles to hang my Route 66 Quilt up with???? Guess not. The quilt is that tall, however.
So much for the demolition. Not bad at all, really. These guys are a class act. It will be as good as new when they get done.
Plus, I am going to have Michael do several other things around here such as, replace several broken windows -- broken inside the two panes of glass -- and I just got the wild idea to ask him to price a cover over our back patio. I figure if Margaret can have one at her new house, then I should have one too. Perfectly logical, doncha think?
I decided to do a new tutorial this morning because it was for something that was so very helpful to me when I was learning to use the Longarm. When I first got it, I was terrified of it! I took dozens of classes in person and online. I bought hundreds of books. I studied and studied and studied how to draw different designs and shapes and pattern fills. I have notebooks full of them. I thought they were so gorgeous back then because I could not draw anything at all to start with. When I look back at them now, they look like chicken scratch. I really have learned a lot!
Here is the new tutorial that nobody will want to watch unless you are a quilter or you just care about what I do and how I do it. I wouldn't mind watching someone demo knitting or crocheting even though I can't do it. I have done some crochet in the way distant past because I had a crocheting friend then.

I need to sew something, so I better step away from the computer. I'm working on the Sassy Librarian Blouse. Phylly is ahead of me, so I need to get with it! Yes, Glenda!, I have used my SFD blueprint to compare the patterns. The outside of the bust dart is at a different place, but I don't guess that matters as long as the apex is right. I like the pleats, and I hear collars are all-the-rage right now.
