During the night Saturday week ago, all of NSW east coast and parts of Qld were hit by a huge weather event and, once again, the bedroom and sewing room at the back of my house flooded, even though I had installed new drains and done a lot of remediation work after the last flood a bit over 2 years ago. The following day all the furniture was moved out of the two rooms thanks to my wonderful family and I was able to set up a sewing area in the family room.
These once-in-a-lifetime rains are happening too often. Further rain events created even more havoc in Tasmania. Seems strange that I had lived in the house for 24 years with no flooding and the last two times we've had lots of rain in a short space of time, the house has flooded.
On Friday the wardrobe was installed in my new bedroom.
Much of Saturday was spent moving into the bedroom, thanks once again to my fantastic friends,
and moving all my sewing furniture and stuff into my previous bedroom. I'm so sad to not be using my lovely sewing room any longer but it makes more sense to have my sewing room at the front of the house - good news is that the room is also pink.
Yesterday I bought curtain fabrics and a blind for my new bedroom so there will be some curtain-making over the next few weeks.
On Saturday afternoon Karen called in with the Scrappy Churndash all quilted - it looks fantastic.
I made a scrappy binding
and two nights of tv watching later, the quilt is finished.
I've received a request for another Piccadilly Circus quilt, so I started cutting strips for that on Sunday afternoon - needed a change from all the furniture arranging.
|No navy in the quilt now - more green, aqua and pink|
Hard to believe little Gulliver turns 1 next Sunday - time is passing way too quickly.
