 Well... today I'm going to be in my sewing room again.

I'm thoroughly enjoying myself in there.

ABOVE:  This little 'fence' was in front of the heat pump unit, under the lounge window.  It's here now ... until we can build another one specifically for here (with a little gate).

Having it there means I can have the door wide open, but the dogs can't take off down the road.

It will be wonderful once it gets really hot in summer.

ABOVE:  And here is the re- arranged sewing room.

I hope this works out, and I don't have to sit there and feel like it's not 'RIGHT'.

Is anyone else like me, who simply cannot work happily unless their area is RIGHT?   

It sure makes life slightly more bothersome being a pain in ya own arse!

So... what shall I sew today?  More Wonky Tree runners?

Yeah, I think I will. 😊

11.45 am:  And I've been sewing all morning, and I am thrilled to say the new room configuration is working PERFECTLY.  I'm pretty happy about that.

Stew is busy working outside, laying down weed killer. The dogs have gone on a 'Playdate' at Steve 'n' Bex's ... so they are safe.

Might stop shortly for some lunch.  And do some fluffing around in the house.

ABOVE:  And whoops!  Marley struck again.  No toy is safe when she's around.

Bloody hell, where is everyone?  Having fun?
I don't think there's been such a quiet day on here in months and months!

So... anyway.  I've made two more of these:

ABOVE:  I'm still having fun with them.

Stew's cooking dinner tonight (again!).  We are having sausages and veges, nice standard fare.

It's shitty outside, cold and wet.  So, not done much else today.

I'm gunna bugger off now... cos well, no one is here.

7 pm:  Well Stew did well with our dinner, it was delicious.  He even made us cauliflower cheese in the oven.  So yummy.
I'd have seconds, but I'm too full.
Must have been REALLY good, cos the kid even ate all her dinner.
Time to wind up this for the day... nothing much is happening around here.


  1. Your comment about making life more bothersome being a pain through being a pain in one's own arse made me laugh out loud Chris! And then then agree. Have a great day

    Had a huge working bee here today so just caught up with your day,..
    Have bags getting dropped off of really good but no longer worn clothing in the lifeline bins tonight,

    Lovely you have had a catchup day as well at home,

    Nice you have Keera and Lacy too.,
    Love the doggy play dates
    Fab idea

    Cheers 🥂

  8. Sounds like a lovely day ... nice to see you back in your happy place sewing 😊

  9. I wonder if you could use the same (tree) technique to make wreaths with a bow. The trees are really cute.

  10. I thought of you today. It is fall here in Minnesota and the leaves are falling. AND the Tamarac Pine trees are turning gold and about to lose their needles for the winter. So - it reminded me of your "dead" trees from last year. They aren't dead - they are just winterizing themselves!

  11. I'm constantly changing how I'm storing my fabrics if that counts. I can't change the room itself around since it's too small loll
