Well, on the first anniversary of beginning John Foster 1885, I have completed my darling. I took him off the scroll rods about an hour ago to press him and give him a once over with at lint roller for the dog hair (it's just a fact of life at Chez Fuzzballs). Do I love this sampler? Oh my yes, but I have to be honest, right now, I am pooped so my happy dance is just a couple of hops around the family room. Maybe tomorrow, I'll get a little more excited that he's finally complete and off the scrolls.
I'll post a picture tomorrow.
On the house front, we saw a lawyer...essentially we are S-C-R-E-W-E-D. The legal beagle said that we should start thinking about getting another contractor to finish up the house and basically we should come to terms that this is a job gone south ...we will never see the results of the job, ~60K for services and goods that we contracted for purchase but never were bought and we probably will never ever see them finish the work. I am sick over it...just sick. Suing Mr. Contractor...well, it'll be a battle and we will have to weigh the cost of legal services with the very real chance that going to court will net us - zero. If Mr. Contractor doesn't have the assets, there will be no recompense. So, I am stuck with a second mortgage and nothing to show for it.
This remodel was the last gift my Dad gave me, the $ was his life savings. I do not know how someone could take $ from someone and just walk away....
So, I hope that you are having a great weekend and stay tuned for a photo of John Foster.
