Bye - bye installers! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Well, it's done! Bye-bye - Pella installers. They managed to finish off all five windows and were out the door by 4:30 or something like that. I really think they need the big yellow circle PELLA logo on that trailer.

The installers are leaving


I mean, it seems that everything you see these days is branded! I've been watching the Missouri Star videos for their advent calendar. Holy --- a lot of the stuff in the box is branded, and their iron is branded. Wait -- I think there are two different things here. We have the manufacturer's brand ...

What was lost is found! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

The missing window has been located! Yeah! I was so worried that the issue I uncovered back in June hadn't been rectified, but I was sure that I scoured that contract before shelling out the money. When I returned from the morning walk, the guys were already hard at work in the garage on the window that had initially been forgotten. Phew -- that means the contract should be OK. 

The missing window was in the warehouse, and it was a challenge to keep them all straight when they had so many windows! But we are good to go. 

All ...

I need more fingers and toes from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I'll start with the window update. So fourteen windows are entirely done, and a couple more are prepped and ready to go this morning. Those are sitting in the garage, and that leaves 12 windows to go and two days left to install them. If you do the math, I don't think they will make it. Two of the windows they did yesterday were small ones in two upstairs bathrooms. 

At some point, we needed to do a count and NO -- we seem to be one window short. I knew this was going to happen. Well, no - I ...

What color is your roof? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I have to laugh as I was reading someone else's blog post this morning, and they talked about how their dog, Jade, didn't like things moved around and was out of sorts! That's just like me! I don't mind the furniture being moved, but I find it incredibly hard to focus when there are work people in my house. No idea why -- I don't mind them coming and going, but it's just darn distracting. I think it's because I have to keep the girls entertained or out of the way, and that's ...

Out with the old, in with the new from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I cannot begin to tell you how lucky we are with the weather. Way back in June, we signed a contract to replace ALL the windows in our house. There are 26 of them - don't even contemplate how much that is costing!

Initially scheduled for September, the work quickly got pushed to October and then December. I seriously was expecting it to get pushed again, but NOPE -- the installer arrived yesterday and will be here the entire week. The weather couldn't have been more perfect for that. 

I had asked the installation coordinator what windows they would start ...

Virtual Quilt Canada - a BOOMING SUCCESS from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 

I'm like a dog with a bone about the windows. I happened to run into my neighbor while walking the dog and their patio door with the integrated blinds/shades? It's a Pella with the "bottom stack." That is what the blinds that open from the bottom up are called. Elle commented that they also have some Pella windows with the same mechanism, which is the same brand that I'm looking at. 

I was back to the showroom yesterday, and GRRRRRRRR   - they no longer make the bottom stack windows. Why not??????  I've spoken to two different ...

Window Shopping from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 

I'm all in a flap this morning. My computer is downstairs! I had to bring it down for a presentation - it's a long story. In short, my laptop is struggling with one version of the embroidery software, but that version works fine on the desktop. When I have a software presentation, I bring the desktop downstairs. I had one presentation yesterday, and I have one this morning. So it didn't seem worth it to take it upstairs. 

I NEED to get that laptop working as this is just silly!!!

So have you ever been window shopping? Oh ...

Treasures From Another Time from - Barb Robson ::: quilter

While we don’t know when the picture on the left was taken, the one on the right was taken in 2018. we have done a lot of work and renovations to make sure this house will survive many more years. We have a local architectural feature known as a “Lunenburg Bump” which serves as a front porch for the front door and also it gives us a lovely open area in the upstairs hall.

Where did it go! February 2019 was such a long time ago. So much has happened…or not happened! Life has changed. I now have two new knees! The first one was done in November 2018 and the second one was done in ...
