The new floor is down and it looks fabulous,
and in just over a week it will be polished.
I can't wait, it's going to look great.
The kids bathroom was finished yesterday and it looks fantastic.
On Friday I swapped my work day to have a day of sewing. My local shop Foothills had a workshop with Sue Daly from Patchwork with Busy Fingers. The workshop was on English paper piecing, it is something I have avoided as I put myself off when I was about 16, my sister and I made a hexagon tablecloth for mum(will show it to you when I find it).
Sue had some gorgeous quilts all done using different shapes.
This is the start of my new loooooong term project, its called Antique Sampler. I'm going to have a go at making with reproduction type fabrics. Very different for me, but I have found that over the years I have really enjoyed playing with things out of my comfort zone. I am no longer stuck in the 'whatever I do HAS to match my house/furniture etc' rut. I am quit happy to try new colours and styles.
Here's Dianne with her first finished block.
