20 January, 2008


blogging, craft, housework its all backing up, and will continue to be ignored as we have started on a new project; the renovation of the laundry. More on the laundry another time. In an attempt to clear the backlog the following randomness is presented.

I finally have my own copy of 'Bend the Rules Sewing' a Christmas present ordered through fishpnd.com.au, thanx B's mum.

We're a bit partial to orange here so of course I couldn't resist 'Tangerine' when I saw it in the February issue of BH&G, I would have also liked 'Crabapple' but they had run out of some of the fabrics. I have my name down, and of course my fingers crossed, for if they can source some more.

More fabric lovin, I have made a little progress on my planned picnic rug. I have cut through a number of pairs of jeans (recycled denim being a key feature of this rug /quilt), and chosen the fabric, clashy pinks and reds.

I am doing good on the handmade pledge, this little guy was purchased from the Hazelhurst Gallery after reading this blog. He was being unpacked and placed in the display cabinet on a recent visit, and has been delivered to his new home, that of one year old Brody.

The awnings over the kitchen and third bedroom windows are up.

And the mystery souvenier from New Zealand, read November 2007, has finally been unwrapped and installed, however, as a photo is yet to be taken, I will keep the suspense going, but only for a day or week or two.

I am thinking of joining these guys here, here, here, here, and here. I don't know where the '30 days' originated but I am liking it.
