This little freezer has appeared in the corner of the laundry (room). It replaces the larger 50 year old model we had before! (Yes, that's right, 50 years old - they don't make 'em like they used to!)

Meanwhile, the laundry floor is looking a little messy (this is the shortest route from the garage/workshop to the backyard).

What do you suppose it all means?


  1. 50 year old freezer. you are right, they don't make them like that any more.
    Looks like you are building something. Can't wait to see!

  2. Oh, fun! You know I thrive on building projects. You will love the new ironing board-very handy.

  3. Could it be a nice temperature controlled room for your long arm and other sewing stuff?

  4. Are you building a dance floor? A deck?

  5. That fabric on the ironing board is too cute! My guess is also a deck.

  6. Ooooh, a new sewing room? Love that ironing board cover, but please take care you don't overdo the non-quilty ironing!
