Happenings, bit of a mixture

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 dining/family room is getting a fresh coat of paint.  

The kids bathroom was finished yesterday and it looks fantastic.

I had to laugh when all their 'stuff' was put into the vanity.
You can tell which side belongs to the boy!!

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.

Spring is definitely here, today is just gorgeous. The cherry blossoms have today 'popped' a few blooms with the warm day we have had.

And the Azalea is more than happy.

The washing on the line has dried very quickly, which is a lovely change from days! So I'm off to bring it all in and enjoy the last of today's sunshine.

Till next time, whatever you may be doing
 Enjoy it, Live it, Love it
