They say you know that you're getting old when policemen look young but I suppose this must be true with tradesmen too!
There is a sewing related reason for telling you this - unfortunately the re-decorating means that I'll just HAVE to make a new quilted throw to match the new decor as my old one doesn't match and I'll need new cushions too. Oh dear me, it's such a shame!
I plan to use these fabrics for the throw as they co-ordinate with my dining room quilt and the dining room leads off from the living room.
Some were kindly sent to me from Kelli who was my partner in the recent doll quilt swap. I bought the pink ones from Julia's shop Gone To Earth where I received a fantastic, super quick service. I received the parcel less than 24hrs after ordering.
"But you haven't finished your last quilt yet" I hear you cry. I know but I can plan can't I?
Whilst on the subject of decorating I thought I'd mention that my brother (who now lives in America), and his wife had their beautiful home featured in the American magazine Better Homes and Gardens. They have done so much work on the place and have completely renovated it. We haven't visited yet but plan too in the next year or two.
I may be biased but I think it looks so stylish. They are both talented graphic designers so have a great eye for good design. Just realised I've missed a picture of the kitchen........will add it later.
Bye for now and hope to be back soon with some finished sewing, Maria.
