We had never finished our upstairs. It had sheetrock and is insulated, but not finished out. When we put in the hardwood floor, David suggested putting the carpet upstairs. It took forever to find someone who would lay "used" carpet (even though the carpet was only 5 years old!). Luckily, a gentleman came by to collect for the Rescue Squad in our county. We were desperate and asked everyone we saw if they knew anyone who would lay used carpet, so, naturally, David asked this gentleman. He said that he was a carpet layer!!! That was a "God-send" moment!! He checked it out, looked at the carpet and he and his son laid the carpet the next week!!
Last Saturday, we shopped at Sam's and found a portable air conditioning unit. WOW! Was that thing heavy!! But David got the 2-wheeler out and we worked it upstairs on the 2-wheeler.
It has taken me 3 weeks to get everything up there and workable. But I really, really, really wanted my Horne sewing cabinet upstairs but it weighed a TON!! I couldn't lift even one side of it. My husband has back trouble and I really didn't want to ask him to do it. I had suggested hiring some football players to move it upstairs. After moving the air conditioner unit upstairs with the 2-wheeler, David said, let's go for it. I told him we just couldn't do it. But the Italian ingenuity came into play again! We loaded it on the 2-wheeler on its side, tied it to the 2-wheeler so it would not go tumbling down the stairs, and, low and behold - it worked. We walked it upstairs one stair at a time and it is now in its place.
But here is the rest of my sewing room.
I had to hang a quilt and I love my Funky Chicken quilt. This was a quilt challenge from years ago where it had to be 80% blue and have a Memphis Theme. I thought of all the musicians from Memphis and made this quilt. It has Jerry Lee Lewis depicted as a rooster playing the piano. Two (I can't say roosters since one has to be a hen) doing the "funky chicken" on the dance floor. Elvis rooster in his blue suade (that can't be spelled right!) shoes and a Memphis horn rooster. Around the edges I have listed all the musicians I know who are from the Memphis area. It is just a happy quilt that I love to look at so it is hanging in my sewing room.
