I love to decorate.... whether it be one style at a time or all at once...

Latest creations...

Hi ladies, thought I'd show you what I've been up to. Finished the raggy ruffle quilt that was a customer order. It's an all roses quilt for a lovely little girl.  It always makes me happy to make these pretty quilts.

Also made a couple of cushions that I still have to list on ebay. Now Sold! Thank you!

There's actually a heart appliqued on this one but for some reason couldn't get some decent pics.

Apart from that, Lisa got her 'P's (provisional driver's licence) on Friday, I was trying very hard not to get emotional and cry in the middle of the RTA... and was doing pretty well .....till I saw Lisa burst out crying (with happiness). We were both a blubbering mess at one stage and  I'm sure people in the shopping centre were looking at us funny when we both walked out with bulging red eyes from the RTA!

bye for now, not forever,
take care, Maryann

Painting done and blogger sitting on the fence!

Well, I can't believe it's been a month since my last post! So I will try and go back to fill you in on what's been happening,(which may prove to be a tinsy hard since I can't remember what I had for dinner last night,,)

So, I know for sure I ran out of gb on my computer last month and couldn't use it for a few days, so had no temptation to check for msgs, check out new blogs, check ebay,etc, etc, etc.. It really is amazing how much one can get done without temptation lurking!!  So I have made it one of my goals to stay off as much as possible and use my time more wisely and efficiently. I will still be blogging but perhaps only once a month where I will fill you in with all my boring details...

 Ok.. FINALLY MY HOUSE PAINTING IS FINISHED.... well atleast from the outside. It all looks one colour now... yellow.. I love it.. it makes me happy! I gotta tell ya though that hubby of mine is one slave driver.. if he says tomorrow we are painting this, this and this, there's no changing his mind. Gulp down breakfast and off we go. I really should take a leaf out of his book, and stop thinking about doing something and just get on with it!
Here's some pics,

We are going to pave infront of the house and down the sides and put in a cottage garden as well.

I would love to convert my old front verandah into a sunroom/sewing room and have mentioned it to hubby not long ago( was waiting for my extension to be finished first before I hit him on the head again with another project) Have to say though he didn't say no.. I think, maybe, just maybe, he might do it. Question is when???

I love my french doors, if I could I'd take out all my sliding doors and replace them I would.

Last Friday was Lisa's birthday. She turned 17. She's the one far right being silly with her friends

She is growing up so fast now. She has a boyfriend and will be going for her driver's licence in a couple of weeks. Need I say how I feel?  Sick.. yep totally worried about everything and have the weirdest dreams of her being eaten by sharks... true!  T'was just yesterday she was only a 4 year old who adored mummy, dollys and pink! Atleast she still likes pink.

I just want to also say sorry to those ladies I normally visit and leave a comment on their blog. I have been sitting on the fence when it comes to blogging but I have been reading what you have been up to! Will promise to leave comments at least once a month and honestly you don't have to leave comments on mine all the time too !

I have just started up my sewing again and am working on some orders which I had since before last xmas and some new ones too. I am making a pretty roses quilt for a very special customer and I'm looking forward getting back into it and hopefully some new stuff for ebay. Will post pics as I go.

I managed to get a quote on getting my bargain find reupholstered..

I think now maybe it wasn't such a bargain find, not unless I can do it myself. They want $1850.00 and that's not including the outer material, .. what do you think.. it sounds like alot to me. I think it will be residing on  my back verandah a little while longer.
Well I think that's it for this post.. I do hope all you lovely ladies have been well and happy.. take care, hugs always, Maryann
