 Last night I joined Wendy and the girls for a night of stitching
I didnt get quite as much done as I would have liked because I had an unexpected visit from my ex SIL
I appliqued these pansies for a future project
 Sewed the binding on my latest "Lorraine's Flowers runner and that's about it
 This one is for me I usually make them for special people in my life.

And I received my gifts for Christmas In July swap
Looking forward to opening these

Busy Busy

 Life has been very busy around here Firstly we sold our dairy farm so had to move stuff from there, then we went to a house auction in town and I liked the house so hubby bid on it and we bought it for a retirement home
Now I am sure we will never live in it because Hubby is a workaholic and loves his life on the land and his animals, but one never knows what life brings
We still have a smallish beef farm where we currently live
Any way the house was filthy and I mean Filthy
Dogs inside and smokers
There was some debate as to whether the walls were white or cream under all that smoke I think you can see it in the photo
We have nearly finished cleaning and it has come up very nicely
Ripped up all the carpet and now hubby is laying ceramic tiles
We will soon have to look for tenants .No smokers or pets!!!
 A little sewing has been managed
My friends and I spent a day making hangers for each bed at our local hospital
Another big job
 And a journal cover for my sisters birthday
I have been visiting blogs too so keeping up with what you are all up to
