Good to Go

The sleeping space has been rearrange in anticipation of the arrival of family.




The spare bed is moved with the trundle underneath. I was lucky to get it all moved with help from DH. The big repurosed lounge room furniture was able to stay.

Tomorrow is moving day and most of the furniture will go into storage BUT not the bed. There is nothing like sleeping in your own bed and the room awaits


The sewing corner is all set up . I was able to find room for the important items and everything else is acessable . I'm a happy quilter.


The view from my sewing chair. The peace lillies are suffering from 40° heat with strong wind.



DH hand watering to keep the garden wet. Buffalo is snowed in and we'er
sweltering. Whatever the weather quilters are happy sewing.

Hold The Water


l

Relocating my sewing room caused me to measure the ground coffee straight into the cup. Strong black hold the water.

I'm shifting for a couple months while my lovely #2daughter and her guy stay with us over holiday period and into the new year.  The spare room will be thier's and the sewing room will double as spare room come extra space.



I found some strips cut from scraps 



a box of scraps and started cutting in preperation for my move

,

An empty box

Getting ready for relocating to a more public part of the house.  

The challenge will be keeping creativity tidy. Wish me luck!  ????

I do know the photos are the same but no one wants pics of the mess. I promise pictures after the move.

Nightmare or Delight ?




I've always saved useful scraps


And now 2 boxes of something  maybe useful for sometime


Inspired by Bonnie Hunter Leader Enders.


There is a happy caotic mess in the sewing room.  I have always made use of my scraps and explored variations on chain piecing. Recently I came across Bonnie Hunter's blog.

Her scrap saver system ( under techniques on blog).  Just the thing to wrangle this messy treasure.. while cutting 2" strips for a swap 2 1/2" squares are mounting up  as well.  Getting organised for the Grand  Illusion Mystery Quilt and summer stitching.
