THIS OLD HOUSE WAS HOME AND COMFORT....
My house has sold! It took less than two weeks and has been bought by a youngish family with two little skippity girls - I know you shouldn't care about who buys your house really but the fact that it's a family has made me happy, it's been a great home for us and hopefully will be for them too. But we may be out by end Aug/early Sept, so the next few weeks are going to be full on - I suspect you may not see me around for a while.
I needed to do some mindless crafting while my brain was whizzing about different things, so I found the Moda charm pack I bought in the sale and, after being inspired by Wipso's lovely little quilt last week, set to placing the squares in a pleasing fashion.
They're such pretty and summery fabrics - I really enjoyed being immersed in colour therapy! I'll make a small quilt and then decide what to do with it!
I do love charm packs - they make life so easy. If I had to pick my own fabrics out in a quilting shop, I'd find it hard as there's almost too much choice. I find that working with limited resources sometimes makes you have to think a bit harder.
Anyway, now the rows are ready, they're perfect for when I have 30 mins to zone out!
Two daft pics to finish on - the first is especially for Helen (Stamping by H), who is another Outlander fan. We found this street name while wandering around Cirencester last week!
A reference for Outlander geeks - ooh, he was a proper bad 'un! Booo, hisssss...........
The second pic I've snaffled from the blog of Darnell, who is on her Grand Day Out crafting tour of the UK! As I mentioned last week, Julia and I were heading off to meet her. We started talking at 4pm and were still going strong at 10 - isn't it fab when you already have a strong bond through this wonderful world of desking? Darnell's pic is much better than mine:
(l-r: Me, Fiona (Staring at the Sea), Darnell, Julia and Morti (Mad Ramblings)
Lolol!! I think Julia looks very roguish, don't you! Think I need to go for some waxing though :-) Goodness, we had fun and talked about everything under the sun. Thank you so much for inviting us down, Darnell - it was a privilege to meet you!
Have a great week everyone xxx
