Fun in my fabric world....

Monday, June 4, 2012

Hard to believe it is over two weeks since I last posted. It has been super busy...
house stuff...windows, kitchen, construction questions, tiles, etc. Lots of trips...many to Newcastle, central Coast and Armidale, all with a background of readying the house for sale and an away work conference. So much accumulated clutter to be sorted and organised...my head was spinning so much yesterday that I was unable to remember how to start the clothes dryer! But now the house is ready to go on the market and legal stuff is being sorted. I will be glad to get this process started!
First a reveal...
a beautifully tidy sewing room (I am impressed with it!)...
with a lovely new cushion...
an immaculate spare bedroom...
and a beautiful autumnal tree! The garden is looking lovely.
A few more things to do and we will be ready for the first home open!
Hope all is well wherever you are...I think the next few weeks will be hectic, so I will pop in and about your blogs to see what you are up to!
