What's that (coming over the hill)

It's a MONSTER! Ok, it's not a hill (it's a kitchen chair). My forearms ache, it takes a lot of muscle power to move this baby through the wee gap in my machine. But I'm really impressed with how it's turning out. Can't wait to get it finished now and see what it really looks like :)

All change!!!! (for a change!?!?)

Not ones to make things simple for ourselves, we have taken our house off the market! The house we were after that we, really, really, really, REALLY, liked got sold to someone that wasn't us (boo!) so we had a long think and decided that we didn't want to move to just anywhere so we're going to stay here for a little while. Bit of an expensive lesson but hey, there you go. But that has meant a the odd little change is in process of happening just now. What that actually means is that the dude has been moved from the little room back into the bigger bedroom, the little room is in the process of becoming an office/'creative' room. The livingroom has had the 'Pedro' treatment and I've got ideas to decorate the kitchen. Oh yeah and I quite fancy doing some major redesigning of the garden. Even the shed has been cleared out! So ..... just a couple of ideas, nothing really!!

I've finally (FINALLY) started quilting my slightly large quilt, and I'm really impressed with it. I haven't done stipple quilting before and I haven't done anything this big before so I'm pretty chuffed with it. No idea how long it will take me to finish but hopefully not too long, it's good fun doing stippling :)
