Ductwork Spacemen.....


Only kids could think of this!!!! It is some of the ductwork for the central heating which still needs to be installed. We are settling into the house a bit better now. Master 7 isn't feeling as homesick for the old house now and is settling down for bed at night a bit easier. We have a few doors on now too - we can go to the loo in peace! My Dad came down for a few days last week and did a few more jobs for us - skirting boards, architraves, doors, door handles etc... Thank you Dad.
Continuing on from the Ductwork Spacemen above, here is a photo of the boys a few weekends ago at the Star Wars Exhibition at Science Works in Melbourne. Master 7 hated the crowds and just wanted to get out of there...until R2D2 "spoke" to him. The rest of us thought the exhibition was fantastic and loved every minute of it. If you get a chance to see it before it ends at the beginning of November, do, it was a great day out.
Now, getting away from the space theme....this was a "house warming" present from a lady we know. She gave us some money to buy something so we put it towards an original painting by Gail McCormack. I love Gail's paintings, they are so beautiful and very reasonably priced too. As well as originals, she has many prints, cards, mixed media and her husband, Tony, restores old furniture.
Now to crafting, I have been making a few things to stock up the shops for Christmas. I have also been thinking of doing a local market as well.....I need to think about it a bit more first.
I will leave you here with a little snippet of my favourite fabrics all piled, neatly, in my new sewing room cupboard!
Cath Kidston on the left and Rachel Ashwell on the right.......ah!
I haven't had a lot of time to visit you all lately but I will try and make some time this week.
Hope you are all well, Kathryn. XX

Your photo of your kids with that ductwork (is it a joint?) is hilarious! What creative imaginations!

Your housewarming gift is lovely! Gail McCormack's work is beautiful! I can see why you wanted one of her paintings for your new home! I hope you show it up on your wall when everything is put together!

That MOP buckle is so pretty. It looks like you've made a very pretty cuff there!
