Weekend Achievements!

Boy Mondays do come around quick!!  We had a great weekend knocking some home jobs out of the park!!! I also got some quilting done too and organised my sewing space a little better.

My machine with the project I am working

My ironing table and iron.

The rest of my desk with my sewing things on.  It looks better now I have put a few things away and made rooom for my sewing things.

My Quilting Helper – Treacle.  The weather over the weekend was extremely cold and grey and it did not get above freezing so this is where she spent most of the weekend.  Clean bed too!

Anyway I managed to quilt and bind the little boy quilt and here it is :

The above picture the top finished.

Now quilted!

The binding above and the back below.

Just now need to wash it and it is all done. 

This is the next one up for sandwiching, quilting, binding and washing!!!

Youngest’s new furniture arrived and was all made and installed and looks great.  He has now got a bit more room for a couple of pieces which will give him more cupboard/draw space which was missing with the old furniture. 

We  got a new blind for our den where I work.  When we first moved in we found a Japanese paper blind and it was great as it let lots of light in but great for keeping the glare off, especially as the window gets a lot of sun in the Spring/Summer.  This had been up all the time we had been in our home and had gotten a little grey over the years but I finally found the same blind but with some leaves printed on, same size and everything.  Anyway that also arrived on Saturday and it looks so much better now.  I also had some gift vouchers for my favourite department store and ordered some new curtains for our dining room.  The curtains in there used to be in the dining room at our old home so are quite old and still look okay but are just starting to fade on the edges where the sun gets them.  So we ordered new ones.  I will get some pictures when they are up.

Am up to date with all my work and home jobs so am going to get my next quilt sandwiched and pinned this evening!

I hope you all had a great weekend whatever you were up to and were allowed to be up to Covid wise and have a great week to come.

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

    Sounds like a very productive weekend for you!! So glad that you have finished a quilt and have another one ready to be quilted!! Cold weekends are great for getting things done in the house! It has been quite warm here – it has been getting up to 12+C during the days with -2C at night. Nice enough to just have a jumper on outside in the afternoons!!
