Here is a before and after shot of the window above. Very satisfying!
The new leadlight skylight diffuser is now in place in the lounge room at Warrimoo. I was very happy to see it slot in perfectly and not sag in the middle!
We have been burning some piles of leaves in the evenings as there is so much fuel on the ground. This is also a really nice thing to do. A glass of red standing by a glowing fire in the evening is good for the soul (as long as you have your coat and gloves on of course)!
The scrap quilt I am making for our daughter and her partner is progressing well. Not many more to go now. Its going to be huge!
I am really happy with the colours and think that it will look great when its finished. All of this fabric came from my stash. Needless to say, there is still plenty left. Some of the fabric combinations are not what I normally would have chosen, however, Erin loves things a bit different and I have had to try to step out of my comfort zone a bit. I guess we always find this challenging but I am surprised by how much the odd blocks are growing on me.
Our Rayburn stove has been getting a good workout lately. Its lovely to use on a cold day. It keeps the house warm and cooks dinner at the same time. We cooked up a storm for a curry night on the weekend which was really yummy.
That's my latest retro linen tea towel hanging in front of the stove. From the Gold Coast of course! I think Queensland is responsible for 75% of touristy tea towels in Australia. Another bargain for only $5.
Looking forward to visiting the Sydney Quilt Show in a couple of weeks. Can't wait to find some bargains and catch up with some of my quilty friends!
