It's a long blog full of photos, so go get your favourite beverage & settle in for the viewing. :-)
The sewing of this quilt has calmed down the stress levels & I love how it turned out!
I knew I had to do it that night, I can't even sleep on Bill's side of the bed, such a creature of habit!lol
What to do with these wee scraps?
It showed the fabric beautifully in this mini coin quilt. Scraps that most would through out, I have such fun playing with them & making 'Something From Nothing'.
I made my own piping with coordinating muslin backing, with Velcro closing.
Another Pillow Design ~~~~~~~~~~
I found this blue & white check fabric at Frenchy's & knew it would look great in the Carroll Cottage!
It finishes the pillow off & doesn't take from the center design & will wash beautifully.
I'm thinking of adding yellow beads to the center of the Aster Flowers. The Aster flower is my September, birth month, flower. I'm seeing wild ones everywhere right now. September is just around the corner!
I cut off the needed amount of cotton twine, boiled the kettle & placed the twine in a cup & added the boiling hot water. I left it to cool, then placed it in the sun to dry. Now it was ready to use.
I'll show the complete pillow next post.
OK Enough Creativity... Now The RENO!!
Let's Go Inside!
The sewing room is getting closed in with chip board. Next week the drywall is going up!
The whole house has been rewired & awaits for the installation of the new 400amp box, It will be brought in underground from the pole. No lines around the house.
It reminds of yesteryear's of my time together with my Dad, in airport hangers, when he had his Stenson 108 plane. And you wonder where my need for speed came from! lol
Thank you for joining in my dream life. I hope you enjoyed yourself & will be visiting again soon.
It is ever changing & I can't wait to start the decorating & the moving in of the furniture as the Hardwicke House is completed this Fall.
Live is always evolving for me. What a blessed life with Alberta/ Ontario/Quebec/USA family & friends & now the new Maritime friends, life is good!
This year started off quite sad with the death of dear Eva, my mother-in-law, followed by the death of Boris-Loree, my faithful companion for over a decade. I understand no one, living thing, is immortal but the sadness when you have the void & the happiness when you have those memories.
I guess that's why they say - 'You only get sad, to be glad again'? Seasons later & these days I'm very glad!
Have a safe & happy week, be glad!
