Sewing Room

Six and a half months ago my sewing room looked like this:


We had an enormous storm and my sewing room and the spare bedroom were both flooded plus there was water damage in the kitchen and loungeroom.  The repair work was finally completed recently and by Sunday morning the sewing room was full of stuff (my great family moved all the heavy stuff in a couple of weeks ago).


Sorting it all out didn't take as long as I thought and by Sunday evening (after going to the movies to see "Gone Girl") the room was finished.


I had a temporary sewing area set up in another room during this time - luckily I have another spare room at the front of the house.

Yesterday, for the first time in over 9 weeks, I sat at the sewing machine and sewed bindings on three of the quilts Karen quilted for me recently.  I have 3 more bindings to sew on then lots of handstitching.

"Goodnight Irene"
"Kiss Me"

"X and +"

7 sleeps till I go to Melbourne for Elizabeth's university graduation and then head off to Hobart for a few days with The Schoolgirls.  We have lots to celebrate.

PS:  Really enjoyed the movie, didn't think I would - lots of twists and turns and there was only one part when I had to close my eyes.
