Don’t let my quiet blog fool you!

Hi all,

We have had such a busy week!

Doing this -

P1030708

And of course I forgot to take before photos…we are putting new carpet in our bedrooms, we have had a concrete floor in the main bedroom for about 4 years and the carpet in the boys rooms is about 30 years old so it is long overdue!

P1030709

So these are the boys rooms. We think the house was an owner build because it is pretty dodgy…so we are redoing all the skirting and architrave boards. And then we need to paint before the carpet goes in.

This morning I meet mum at Spotlight and we used our $40 vouchers to get curtain fabric for the new rooms too.

It is all happening!

Quilt backing 

I have managed to squeeze in some sewing time though. This is the backing for my How far will you go? QAL quilt. Kind of an improve stacked coin look. It is a lot bigger than the actual quilt size and I still need to trim the edges.

I had to order some more fabric for my border so I thought I would make the backing while I waited. I ordered the fabric from Perri at Stitches from the Bush, she has a great little online shop. And I snuck in a Noteworthy charm pack, I am so in love with this range!
