The weekend that was.....

Looked beautiful outside
...the sun is deceiving... 
icy wind 
.... best stay indoors and stitch....


Hubz got me a new table for my sewing space

This is the view where I have sat for the last few years - it has evolved as we have put in shelves, added hooks etc

I love this space... it has necessities, and treasures, and memories


a change is as good as a holiday they say

A new corner table 
take down the old daggy curtains
move the electrical cords
... MUCH better light .... 
and a change of view 


..... zoom up and you can see where a lot of my entertainment comes from .....
(that's the birdbath featuring in my present blog header)


..... I had to test out if I could really work there so I did some quilting ....


.... this morning this is who popped in for a visit and a snack .... 


Righto, Gotto Go.....

I'm going to try making soap today

Nice of the guests to provide some entertainment while you are sewing.

You have such a lovely view. The window from my sewing room is one meter away from a colour bond fence so i have nothing to look at. This is why I crank up my ipod and sing along to the likes of Van Morrison and Kate Ceberano.

Sunnybec said...

Gorgeous view, will you get much sewing done with all the distractions!!! When I first read your blog I thought you said you were going to make soup.... think it's time I had my eyes tested... xxx

I have been wanting to learn to make soap. I love all the different scents that can be added. No more Granny's Lye Soap, I saw something interesting on Pinterest where they had microwaved Ivory Soap...It made a huge snowball looking thing. Nice new table always great to have sturdy work tables.

I've just recently discovered that I like looking at birds. So I must say that I envy your view... Such pretty birds come to visit you, you lucky girl!

Wow, what an amazing view!! It's loads better than my sewing room view!

soap? Melt and pour or cold/hot process or whatever it's called?
