Change.....

They say a change is as good as a holiday so I decided to change my blog header this morning. It took longer than I thought, but I like it. It's a bit more colourful for the upcoming Spring - Yeah! I can't wait for a bit of warmth in the air.
Yesterday I went and had morning tea with Kylie (A Bite of Country Cupcakes) and her two gorgeous girls. She had made the most delicious little cupcakes - yes real ones this time with jam and cream and a passionfruit filling - YUM!

And, of course, I bought home a few more of her faux cuppies and chocolate love hearts. I just love her work. You can find more here.
There has been some progress with the new sewing room.
I now have walls and a cupboard!
Along the left under the window will be my long sewing table/desk. It will be long enough to have my machine and overlocker and it will have enough space for laying quilts out as I sew.....
These were taken at 5.30pm and just look at the light! It is north facing so I think I could sew all day without a light on, how great is that!
Lots to think about...
