One more sleep....

And hopefully that long awaited kitchen might start to appear. It was supposed to be here last week...but now it is this week and the laundry has been delayed now too...so I am putting on my happy face and reassuring myself that "it won't happen overnight...but it will happen"... Optimism is my friend?
Here is the space cleared tonight ready for something to appear in the morning.


I have not joined in Chookyblue's SAL (something about a UFO I need to finish first), but I have been watching everyone make these cute little thread catchers...here is my version. They are cute!


Not a lot of stitching happening still...lots of changes on the work front...I am getting good at interviews...and finding a niche!


A sweet friend gave me these gorgeous flowers on his first visit to our new home... I love flowers and enjoyed seeing them every day. Lucky me!

I hope the kitchen installers are hard at work as I write. It will be worth it in the end. No one can resist the thread catchers, yours is lovely and bright.

Cheryll said...

Oh yes... fingers and toes crossed for your big delivery. Today could be a great day! :)

Hmm an orange thread catcher, who would have thought! I so hope that your new kitchen gets underway this week. Lucky it is BBQ and salad weather in the interim.
Fingers crossed the job interviews turn up something good...like a position with plenty of quilting work mates, a flexible work schedule to fit in sewing and a big pay packet...got to aim for the stars!

I hope those tradies are in your kitchen right this very minute...you've waited long enough! Best of luck with the job interviews xxx I'm not joining in the SAL this time... I don't own one of the books, and have quite a few other things going on this year :) Looking forward to seeing the kitchen snapshots!
