Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Day One of the reno.

 The noise wasn't so bad but the dust was a health hazard!  Ken sat there all day watching the men and commmenting on everything.  I told him ONCE that exposing his lungs to that dust all day would make him sick.  By the end of that afternoon he was feeling very second hand, but recovered enough to go to a friend's place for dinner. 
These pictures show the gradual destruction of the kitchen - cupboards pulled away from walls.
  Stuff was being moved outside, and the plumber and electrician were busy doing their things in preparation for the dishwasher, stove and oven.

 Just as well we are getting a new floor when all this is done...
 So here it is after the boys finished on Saturday afternoon - first lot of new cupboards against the wall, waiting for the laminated top.
 Below, same view with old cupboards.
 This is the new Electrolux oven still with protective blue film over the glass.
  And this is the old Westinghouse.

I think I need a new oven my current one looks to be about 20 years older than your old one, lol. How exciting I think it will look lovely when finished Gina.
