Who would believe I’m finally doing another blog post? Not you Carolyn, I’m sure! Carolyn called in a few weeks ago to pick up one of her quilts and said if she saw the “anniversary pics” one more time she’d cut her throat – well, I couldn’t have that on my conscience, could I?
Our lives are always busy, and it seems we all say the same thing so I won’t bore you with that. However, to add even a little more onto my plate we have been undergoing “renovations” for the past few months – seems like years. We decided to change our flooring from tiles to floorboards – that can’t be too hard, can it? We had the tile removers come in and remove the tiles and there was to be a 4 day gap before the floorboards went down….WRONG!
I went to a quilt show one day, having a lovely time with Shontelle and a few of our quilting buddies and come home to…..”We (Tony and his friend John) thought it would be a good idea to remove a wall to “open up the kitchen area”. They’d already contacted another friend who was here measuring up for the kitchen alterations. That has held things up for a further 2.5 months and this is how we’ve been living. The moral to this story is “never leave your husband alone with “Workmen”!!
The tiled area covered 80 square metres and I’d never have believed the places that dust could get into – concrete dust has incredible powers. Everything we touch is covered in dust and I can’t wait for it all to be beautiful!
Quilting and AMQF
I have still been quilting throughout this although the interruptions have played havoc with my schedule…..what else is new I hear some sayAlso, we have taken AMQF on the road, doing what Shontelle has fondly named “The Ricky Roadshow”. We have been visiting groups and doing a little talk on AMQF and how fabulous it is going to be. We can’t wait for it to begin and share it all with everyone – hope to see you there! If you’d like to find out more visit the website. Here are a few photos of what’s been leaving the studio over the past few months………
Scarlett absolutely loves doing craft – they have a dedicated craft room at their house where her and her “mumma” are continually churning out masterpieces. Here she is in my studio using the Baby-Go to create another purler!
And here are “3 of my top 5” – how lucky am I?
Until next time, whenever that may be, be happy and keep on quilting!
PS Just for you Carolyn – we’ll see if you really do read my blog
