Party Pooper...

From joining in with Chooky's party on Friday night with all the gals and that was the end of my weekend party I'm afraid.....

We had an open house on Saturday so I spent my morning cleaning and hiding washing and all those things one does when strangers are going to look through the house.... only one person came and only to look to see how house prices are going!!!  

I'm not sad about the lack of numbers (though that is disappointing) ... its the wasted time cleaning... I could have been sewing!!!

Then we had young widget to stay.... and he is at school so it's fun to sit up late and we watched some movie all together (Dingo. dango or something... about a lizard that got stuck in the desert) ... there is just something about a 6 year old shrieking with laughter at silly things in the movie ... that was worth missing sewing for and I could hand stitch while we watched.

Then we went house hunting on Sunday.. didn't see anything we specially liked... just as well as we haven't got interest in our house... but I quite like driving around gently looking at places around town that we haven't seen before....

I did do some hand sewing last night and finished off this sweet stitchery ...


Happy 3rd Birthday Chookshed and thanks for hosting us Chooky... I've seen heaps that other people have done so it has been very successfull...

I hate open houses, especially when it's raining. I had a lovely clean house then had mud tracked through despite shoe removals. Love the movie you & Widget watched, so funny. Cute stitchery. Hugs,

sounds like Widget had a great time with you guys. Hope you get some interest in your house so you don't have to keep speed cleaning it! Just think when you're looking someone has been doing the same thing.
cute stitchery....

Shame about your open house and lost sewing time cleaning.
Sounds like a lovely night in at the movies with great company.

gracie said...

Love your stitched piece.

Jennifer said...

Well, you did manage a few stitches......don't envy you buying and selling, it can be a very fraught exercise, can't it!

Michelle Ridgway said...

So sorry that it was a bit flat... next time! Love watching the kids senses of humour develop and their laughter. Sweet stitchery too x

Good to hear you had a good time with Widget...love your stitchery, it is very cute!! Keep positive about the house, our first open house 4 couples came through...no returns, but the next ones through bought it! I can commiserate with you over the lack of sewing time...still happening here. But it is worth it Fiona.

Karen S said...

That ended up being an up and down weekend for you! Selling houses is not much fun. I hope you do not have do this too often. But then I also hope you find something that you want, too, without too much hassle.
Love your gorgeous little stitchery. Where is that design from?

Melody said...

Ahhh, Rango. Good luck with your house hunting/sewing.

Your little stitchery is beautiful.
Greetings,
Sylvia

Susan said...

Good luck house selling and buying. Sounds like you had a nice weekend anyway. That stitchery is so sweet.

Anthea said...

Hi Fiona - while it was a shame to not get much stitching done, the time with Widget (won't mention the house cleaning) is so precious... I think the movie name is DJANGO... I hope you get some interest in your house soon.

Yvonne W said...

That is a cute stitchery-- you did get some sewing in after all. All the best with the sale of the house and also happy house hunting.

Jane Galley said...

How frustrating to go to all that effort, but at least you won't have to clean for a little while and can catch up on some sewing time :)

Barb said...

WEll...on the bright side, you had a clean house...nothing feels better.

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey Fiona! Oh ... I feel your cleaning-for-open-house-pain ... it was our life this time last year! On the upside ... that turned out well, so I think it will be the same for you. Hope there's more interest in coming weeks and that you find your ideal house soon ... so you can get back to messing the house up ... er ... I mean ... CREATING!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS
