chaos... organised??

it is slowly coming together,

we moved house over the weekend, as well as having a house full of guests - so given all that I think that we managed very nicely indeed, and have mostly managed to retain a sense of humour AND our sanity


The local annual  ball (Yep a ball in Twizel!), was held on Saturday night, and what a fantastic evening it was too, all decked out n our glad rags, we trotted off with friends and family (son & fiancee and nephew & girlfriend) in tow, and rocked away 'til the wee small hours of Sunday morning, then on Sunday we were into moving furniture and boxes...










So now we are living in the house that is on the property with the shop, parts of which are still looking a bit messy, and there are still several boxes of "stuff", patterns. notions and bitsnbobs to be unpacked and placed about, but largely it is pretty much coming to life!
most of the fabric has been sorted, and stacked, altho' a few bits need to find better homes, but I guess this will come together over the next few days and weeks
it's really funny (weird funny that is),  but most of the photos I took looked really really horrid, so close ups it is until I get can the shots that I really want to show you
I am loving this range of fabric and cannot wait to get into it and get a sample quilt made up...
such loveliness indeed!!... altho' again photos not quite cutting the mustard
well, might leave you here, and get back into it, have to spend some time today doing a bit more stuff for the website, gosh this stuff really does take quite a bit of time....

I want to come and play in your shop. I'll send him off to the lake to fish or tinker with an engine or something, and I'll come and play shop with you.
Best of luck with everything.

Making your preparations for the shop looks like a lot of work. But I think it must be lovely just standing there, looking, smelling and touching all that loveliness!
