Boo hoo - poor me. I've worked my fingers to the bone these last few days but NO sewing at all. It all started when Jess (18yo) decided she'd had enough of climbing the ladder into her cabin bed that she'd had for a few years. So she ordered herself a new double bed and then went the whole hog and wanted a complete re-decorate in her room. The bed was supposed to be delivered in 7-28 days so the website said. Plenty of time........ Then we had a call to say it was in stock and could be delivered in 5 days...
Heres where good old mum came in - lol ! So I have spent the last few days dismantling Jess's huge metal bed - walking across the landing to re-assemble it in Patricks room where previously I had dismantled his cabin bed and sorted out all his half ton of toys. Then we got to painting Jess's room - working our way around the furniture that is already in there etc. I am whacked. The new bed has arrived this morning and we are all straight now. Patricks bed has been freecycled and I managed to squeeze in an extra table into mine and Jasons room. This will be ideal for cutting out my fabrics. Honestly it is looking more and more like a sewing room with a bed plonked in the middle - lol !!
Anyway without further ado just look at my gorgeous mini quilt from Carolyn.
I love it so much - wonderful work and so sweet. Here's a close-up of the pretty fabrics and tiny, tiny little stitches.
The book has been read and much enjoyed.
The only thing missing from the picture is the chocolate covered pretzels that Carolyn warned me were addictive. You know what - she was right - lol ! I just couldn't leave them alone til the lot were gone. So yumptious...
As you will gather I'm behind on all sorts of things but they are in hand so if you're expecting something from me I'm onto it.
Paula has signed up for my PIF but I'm still hoping for another 2 to sign up.
Now I'm off to do some sewing so I've actually got something to blog about soon. Take care xx
