Bathrooms and stitching

We've had quite a lot of mess and inconvenience while our bathroom and laundry was being done, but I still found time to do some stitching. As much as I enjoy painting, my poor arms need a break. With secret sewing under control I've been working on another Irish Circles block. I really love this one.

And indulging my new found love of selvedges. These ones are Christmassy.

Better show you a pic of the bathroom. I am so happy with how it turned out, it was a bit nerveracking choosing the tiles and fittings, and hoping they would all work together in the end. Unfortunately we will need a lot more rain for our tanks before we have too many baths!

The laundry is almost done too. The walls are finished but I have 7 doors and architraves to paint yet.

Have a lovely day, hope you find a moment to enjoy some stitching.

  4. Red Irish circle looks great. The bathroom looks lovely, and although all the door painting is tiring, all that storage space is great! What are you making with Christmas selvedges?

  9. All in good time - lots of work for you but everything looks fabulous! And you must be gentle on the arms with all the quilting to do!! Love your latest block - beautifuly done.
    Years ago when we stayed overnight at a chook farm, the hosts were so happy that recent rains had topped off their water tanks too. A nice stay - very fresh eggs for breakfast and soft rain water to bathe in.
