It’s a drizzly day today… the gardens always look their best after a bit of rain, especially in Springtime
It’s the perfect day for hiding in the sewing room. The same sewing room that has just had the biggest tidy up you could imagine!
Lots of open bright space, uncluttered, ready for me to make another huge mess ‘creative explosion’

Ratty’s all good! I had lots of messages wishing him to be well… he’s our little treasure. He had a night at Dr Larry’s, antibiotics and vitamin gel. Although he didn’t eat while there, he had a nice feed of his favourite chicken when he got home. He had an infection, not sure where, but Dr Larry was pleased to tell us that the blood test results showed Ratty’s kidney function is ‘like a cat half his age'… and ‘he’s in great shape for his age’ - which is 14 years. Phew… big relief for us, he’s our furbie friend and thankfully, he’ll be with us for a while yet :)
Psssst… Wanna buy a house?
We’re on the move… we’ve decided to sell up and make our dream of moving to the coast a reality. Yep, it’s time to move away from the cold Toowoomba Winters. We’ve engaged an agent and the video/photo shoot was completed yesterday. Hopefully our little home will be on the market by the middle of next week. It’s a wee bit exciting, we’ve already found land at the coast, started designing our next home and sourced a builder. This one (house build number seven…!) will be a bit different for us. A beach house… fresh, open and breezy
This will be our playground and we can’t wait!
On the ‘crafty’ front, I’ve been busy creating some new bits & pieces and playing with Tilda fabrics. There’s nothing quite like the powdery colours and yum prints. Tilda is Tilda and that is that :)
‘Angelica’ is my first project for the Let’s Stitch a Gift event at QFD Creative. It’s not too late to join up, there’s still heaps of fun to be had, prizes to be won and all of the projects are available until the end of the event. Then there’s the online chat with fellow participants and the designers… that’s fun!
She’s my favourite friend at the moment. I love her :)
There’s more to this story though… there’s more baby stuff to come and this afternoon I’m all in a bind. Yep, handsewing the binding on a teeny little bubby quilt to match Angelica
Righteo… I’m off to park my butt in my fave chair and fall asleep do some hand sewing. That’s the thing about a cool, drizzly, dull day. It kind of makes you want to catch a mid afternoon nana nap
Nothing wrong with that!
