You might be wondering where all my holiday sewing projects are?
These three quilts all came back from the quilter's just before Christmas but I haven't even had a chance to think about binding them yet....... soon though....very soon!
What I have been doing is some much needed sanding/plastering/painting around the house.....
The railing all around my back deck needed sanding and a couple
of coats of paint....very time consuming!
These timbers under the front verandah had never been painted!
A fresh coat of paint for the front door.....much more welcoming!
The hallway needed some plasterwork and a new, more neutral colour!
And finally.... I convinced Hubby to hang some nice timber blinds (that I've had in the shed for years waiting to be cut to size) on the three loungeroom windows!
As much as I would have prefered to be sewing, I'm so pleased that all these jobs are finally done. It's not often I get 10 straight days at home and I wanted to make the most of it, so after Christmas was over Miss 11 and I spent 4 days on the house. She was a wonderful help and I couldn't have got so much done without her..... It turns out she's pretty handy with a paintbrush!
