More Rescues!

There is little that excites me more than a box of goodies that arrives unexpectedly from a friend with a few "rescue projects".  Even in the midst of a partial re-model of our kitchen I was more excited about the box of goodies than the project!

Above is the kitchen after a kitchen "touch up" in 1997

This remodel has been a long time in the plans... when we moved in in December of 1994 we knew we would replace the range top and oven eventually - when one or the other quit working was the thought.  We never figured that the appliances would last another 20 years!  In fact, they were still in good working order when we removed them last week. 

We found a stove that  fit our needs and the right price.  So the transformation began!

In a matter of just a few hours we had the range top,
oven and cabinets out of the kitchen!
And in less than a week we have the new oven in place
and in working order. 
We still need to finish painting the cabinets but at least now I am able to cook and prepare meals with out the need of "being creative" and dealing with tools and dry wall joint compound  and drywall dust on the cabinet. ;)

And NOW I have time to go work on the "rescue projects" that arrived when we started the kitchen project.  There were two of them -
Some Victorian Christmas Stockings

And a quilt top, fabric and pattern - "Back in time Stars" from a magazine published in May of 1996.

The pattern makes a finished 84" x 100" quilt... I think I will make a smaller lap throw, using only the finished star blocks that were included. 

I am off to rescue!
