I am on my own with my puppies at the moment as hubby has returned to QLD to prepare our house for sale ( if you are wondering what the heck is going on, then head to my blog, Cath@Home, link on the side bar, which will document this new adventure)
Anyway, as I was saying, I am virtually glamping at the moment. I have bathroom and kitchen facilities with the basics, a new cosy mattress, a tv, my iPad and my sewing machine! What more could a girl want........er, well maybe my rulers, rotary cutters, scissors and everything else which is currently packed and sitting in limbo!
I insisted on bringing my Bernina in the car with us as she is still brand new and I couldn't trust her to the removalists. I had a thought that I could put her to use straight away and packed a few essentials which I had to leave behind in the end due to lack of room in the car. Anyway I needed somewhere to put the big girl or how was I going to sew. 'Sew' we were suprised to see that the previous tenants left a dining room table here when they left and I soon appropriated it for my sewing room, which feels like a sewing nook after my previous room.
I have set miss Nina up and there is still room for a cutting mat (which I sneaked into the car) so I decided to look for some inspiration before I go stir crazy. I picked up a copy of APandQ when in town and while reading it cover to cover, I came across an ad from Smeedesigns. I have ordered a stitchery from them before which was in my basket of glamping to-do's and which got left behind.
I have put my order in and I am now waiting for my pattern, called Australian Afternoon, to arrive. It should only take a few days and the good thing is that I have ordered the pre printed fabric pattern so I won't be needing my light box (or miss Nina, for that matter) just some embroidery thread and a needle.
In the meantime, I will keep reading the Ruth Rendell mystery I got from the library
while I have a cup of my favourite brew and snuggle under a quilt with my little companions (see first picture)
Now you know I can't resist showing piccies of my girls. So here is another couple of them living a life of luxury. All you can see of Lila in the top photo is her pink ear but believe me she is in the bottom photo although well camouflaged by the blanket.
Don't they look cosy?
Till next time,
