After a week and a half of no bath (no shower- but we didn't have one anyway) we have tiles, and a bath- with no taps- no shower, and not even a hole in the bath for taps, yet.
So, you could say I'm a little "ripe" now, but fortunately I have a lovely friend who has given me a key to her house with the express instruction to go and de-stinkify whenever I want, yay! The bathroom will be finished tomorrow, well, the bath SHOULD have taps and the shower should be fitted, and I can't wait to go and get clean whenever I so desire. You don't miss it until you don't have it, and oh how I miss it!
So, inbetween bossing around workmen, making decisions about stuff I never knew I needed to care about (the colour of grout!), sealing tiles- let me give you a little warning about Travertine or any real stone tile, they're high maintenance, sealing before fitting, special cleaning and then regular re-sealing, snore- I have finally managed to get in a little more sewing.
The quilt top of my Craftsy BOM 2012 is now all sashed and ready to be basted. After months of never quite getting round to making the final 4 blocks, I read this post by the fab Lucy and had an epiphany. Who is to say I need to finish those last 4 blocks, so what, I have 16 blocks which is more than big enough for me to make a sofa quilt, for MYSELF, so I sewed it together, and so far, the quilt police haven't come to arrest me. I'm thinking, sometimes, you've just got to give yourself a break. :o)
It's not perfect, some of the points are lost, it's not 100%, but I learned a lot making it last year, and soon (hopefully) I will have a quilt of my very own, for all of the sofa surfing I do.
Alongside this, I have been working on the binding for my Hexy quilt, busy busy, and I'm about a quarter of the way round joining it. The it needs to be sewn down and quilted to hold the edge layers together, this is progress, real progress. :o)
Right, back to my sewing, can't stay here chatting
