    But Honey, It's just like quilting...

    I haven't been on the board much for the last couple of months as we are refinancing the house & finishing the bathroom remodel was my primary focus. So everyone thinks I'm nuts with the detail I've been doing on the tiling in the shower but I kept thinking "it's just like quilting". I start trying to describe how I'm going to put the design blocks on point with this or that border and my DH shakes his head "so much more complicated than it had to be"... But seriously, it's so similar to quilting that this is my favorite part of the remodel. Cutting tile is a lot tougher than cutting fabric but luckily, the grout allows for those "uneven seams". My hands are now so rough from all the tile & cement work that I dare not touch certain fabrics for fear of snagging them & there's no way to put on nylons... Enough fun - back to work!
