Determination...that was the theme of this weekend.
With visitors gone, a hush has fallen over Chez Cardy. Some extra week and a difficult client week has left me a little flat. So to fix that, I made a list, and have been checking things off it.
The garden (or the dirt aspiring to one day become a garden) has seen the addition of a pear tree on the footpath, with some flowers at its base...the sweet little girl next door loves it! I have also recently planted a weeping cherry in my front yard and a crabapple out the back. Give them a couple of years and they will be lovely. No photos as small sticks aren't overly interesting!
Sorry to be boring, but here is a tidy room...
with a new fabric covered notice board and a mini quilt from a friend...
and another mini quilt from Lancaster, Pennsylvania (and a spot for my sewing buddy).
But the sewing room has been a hive of activity...sorting, storing, labelling...and the odd gasp when I find something long forgotten! Funny, it is a year this week since we left our old home and many of our belongings have spent most of this time in storage whilst renovations were finished. Each box unpacked has been like seeing old friends again!
I even tidied next to my sewing chair!
The positive to all this sorting has been a desire to really get in there and do some serious stitching.
After an arduous eighteen months, it is nice to feel my stitchy spark coming back!
