All work and no play makes "Shabby" a very dull girl.....


This is what hours of "isulation istallation" looks like.....yep, pretty dull isn't it? And that little bit is only about a 10th of what we have done over the last few days. I am very pleased to say that the bottom of the house is complete and the upstairs two rooms about 40% done. But I have done all I can now, so it's up to Hubs to finish off - Yeah!!!
So it's time to play.....back to the sewing room for me.......
(let's just ignore the 4 loads of washing strewn all over the lounge room floor, the dusting, the bathrooms and the toilets, blah, blah, blah...)
More Matryoshka's in the making.....

And some pretty bags! I need to find the time to list them on the website....who knows when that will be.

When we redo the interior walls here we will also be hanging insulation and stapling. SO I am feeling you. But, it won't be near as bad on our little cottage as it is on your big home. Love your handmade's!!

Ah, the house is coming along nicely.
The bags are my favourite. I'm a bit of a bag collector!
Hugs,

Hi Kathryn,
The house looks like it's comming along pretty fast now. I know that job would have been a pain but the end result will be well worth it.
Good on you for leaving the housework 'til later...your creations are so pretty.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Kathryn sorry haven't had a chance to visit for a while I've been busy with orders and my washing is piling up too so I know where you are coming from. We must get our priorities right. Sewing first washing whenever.......lol. Love the bags. Take care Carol
