Working bee

Thanks to some great help from family and friends last weekend we fitted the new benchtops in the cottage kitchen AND laid the floating floor in the studio this weekend.  Feeling quite exhausted but it is looking good.  Forgot to take photos of the kitchen (but trust me it is looking great) but here’s some of the floor – GREAT effort guys and THANKS! (Have promised them all I’ll let them have a boys weekend at Sewjourn!)


Had a lovely day up at Sewjourn on Friday with a good friend talking about decorating ideas – it’s all ready to go now.  The girls and I will spend the school holidays up there which will be lovely and we’ll be able to get lots done…………..and of course our ‘Christmas in July’ days start also.

It’s been a long term so we are all looking forward to Friday.  School reports came home yesterday – there was one prep student in our household who was so excited to get her first report she grabbed it out of her bag as soon as she ran out of school…………and dropped it in the mud!  We managed to save it though and it didn’t dampen her excitement.

Haven’t managed to do much quilting this week – did I mention I’ve decided to do my ‘Tate Stars’ quilt by hand?  The girls in my sewing group just laughed but it really is fun………..if only there were lots more hours in the day…………..
