I am only 6 days into 2014 and I have started off on the right foot - rather impressed with myself!!!
Sewing Room - one bookshelf and one set of drawers painted; 2 filing cabinets ready to paint tonight. Only another 4 or 5 bookshelves to go and 2 cupboards - glutton for punishment aren't I. We have these bookshelves in various finishes that are storing very little on the veranda on the old house so I figure I might as well use them in my sewing/craft room - and I don't want a mish mash of colours - so I paint!! Fabrics, notions and haby will be stored in baskets or plastic containers that I have an abundance of so shelves it will be!!

The next lot of vinyl has been put in place but those ripples and flutes are not moving. lesson learnt - do not buy cheap vinyl!! I am about to cut the edges off (I have plenty to spare) and hopefully it will lay a little flatter. tomorrow evening I will be moving some of the storage and shelving in so how it is will be how it is - I am the only one using it so it won't cause too much of a problem.
I have been stitching and designing - well on the way with 3 swaps and a couple of presents!!

Some more stitching - yes I am all over the place - a UFO cushion, hexies for some purses and embroideries for pincushions!!!!
And our daughter drove down from Casino on Friday bringing her daughter for a stay. They caught up with the latest family addition who is now 4 months old (how time flies!!).Oliver's dad (Rheis) took this photo to show off the 3 sets of vivid blue eyes (taken on a phone so the photo is not all that clear!!) Naomi drove home on Sunday with her little Kia Rio packed to the hilt with some of their belongings they had stored in our old house (YAY!!! a little bit more gone). Karah is staying for 2 weeks (that is if mummy's girl doesn't get homesick for mum beforehand) - she has been busy visiting her old school friends and has started a little bit of craft work!
That is it from me for a few more days!!!


  1. Hey, lots of things happening your way. That new space will be so worth all the
    hard work, and drats to the vinyl. Just love baby photo's, they're always so cute.
    Cheers, Anita.

  2. You are on a real roll....I am sure the vinyl will behave today....lovely photo of your family...

  3. Finally getting to catchup with what has been happening in blogland. Loving the sound of your renovated sewing space - can always use more shelves and cupboards. Hope the vinyl has worked out ok today. Enjoy the time with your Granddaughter.

  4. You are doing so well with your craft room, the cupboards and shelves are looking good. Lovely time with family.

  5. You have been very busy. It will be so nice when you are finished. So exciting! xx debbie

  6. Very busy lady! I also have a problem with mish mash furniture but I refuse to paint the timber desk in my sewing room as it was quite expensive and is made out of gorgeous timber. Everything else is white......keeps it nice and fresh.
