Can you say--It"s Time To Bring The House Down???

This is a picture of my son and DIL house which will be torn down Monday morning. Last year 2 weeks after I returned from the CQI Retreat in Breckinridge, Colorado , in October, my son Todd and his wife Melissa had a horrible house fire and lost everything including their 2 precious dogs Morgan a Golden Retriever and Karado their Boxer. That was 4 months ago and things are finally looking up. They have a new Golden Retriever in their life and things are now ready to re-build their home. From this picture the house doesn"t look that bad, but the inside is horrible. Monday morning the house will be torn down to the foundation and the re-building begins. The contractor asked their permission to document in pictures the progress on their home. If you are interested in following the progress along you can go to the link below and go to the album that says, "Waterville Fire Damage" you will be kept up-dated with pics of all the progress. There are now 24 pics and you can see the damage inside the house and better understand why it is being torn down. The CQI ladies and the Newbies group were so awesome to Todd & Melissa when this happened back in Oct. that we will never be able to thank them enough.
So ladies as the name of my blog states this would fall under--My Life!

New project

I am working on a new project with the novice group in CQI on color study. We had to pick an inspiration piece and then piece a block. My inspiration piece is a victorian wrought piece with a doll head in the center. This piece was given to me years ago by a dear SIL. I have pieced my block and "auditioned" embellishments to go with it. Now I must edit my embellishments and start stitching. Stay tuned....
