we have the painters in again...
we really did not intend doing this right now, but I guess that it did need to be done at some time,
our painter has been a bit quiet of late, and needed a bit of extra work to tide him over the next week or so...we had talked to him some months ago about tidying up the stairwell...
the dust just absolutely flies EVERYWHERE!
but he has talked us into a coat or two on the dining room, and kitchen area also, in for a penny... in for many $$$$$... so I needed to empty this.... as it needs to come off the wall (and likely find a new home in Twizel I 'spect)
and this hutch dresser ... thinking about this.. hmmmmm let me think, wouldn't this look great if I paint it white, and when we get up to Twizel, it will look great in my (or what will be..) my sewing studio! he he he... what shall I put in this, great for storing all sorts of things huh....
so not too much sewing done as planned tonight, but definitely on the agenda for tomorrow evening!I have dragged the dining table into the lounge ('cos the sewing room is full of dining chairs and other stuff!), and I plan on getting into some serious machine sewing..
I have managed to do a little bit of stitching over the last few wee bit 'tho, not too sure what I will do with this,
and this is for a gift for a dear friend,
and... not too sure about this one either, but having fun all the same!
AND... I have managed another 2 blocks of Aunt Millie's garden..I am cheating on this a bit and machine appliqueing this 'cos I want it in a bit of a hurry. This will be on our bed in Twizel by the time we both eventually get there at the end of September.
Rowing man is thoroughly enjoying his doctoring up there, he is not too keen on the batching however, and is finding it a bit lonely at night time, but is keeping himself busy, and well fed with my pre-cooked home made meals. 4 weeks down and nine to go! .... and only 5 weeks 'til spring!!
have fun, Shiree
