Those builders are now up to finishing the new wooden floors. That means I will have no access to the computer for a few days. I am sensitive to chemical smells and the coating of the floors is going to... Continue reading

I hadnt planned as much work as the ones that were in the quilt show. This has to be able to go into the washing machine and stand up to a little girl using it. It is for her 4th Birthday and today inspiration struck and I found some nice fabrics to put borders around the blocks.
My mind is constantly on the go. At the moment the deadline has come to chose the furniture for the house. I think I have it sorted but I have to place the orders now.
