New kitchen but little sewing....

I finally got back to doing some quilting. One good thing about having a room in the shed is that once I leave the house, I can't see the mess so I can sew without feeling too guilty. Since the kitchen has been completed, I have not had too many spare minutes but decided yesterday, after a stress full day, I needed a break, so this is what I got up to.

Sorted out where my blocks would go for the Pinwheel Quilt Along. Put sashing between 2 rows.
Finished Block 8 of Love is.... and joined the first 2 rows together.

Worked on the next block for the Jelly Roll Quilt Along. Here is the previous block which I completed a couple of weeks ago but haven't had time to post photo.

And below are the photos of my new kitchen. Still needs flooring replaced but painting has been done just a few fiddly bits to do around the cornice. I am very happy with how it looks but am sick of unpacking boxes and working out where everything should go. Have managed to throw some things out but still have 3 more boxes to unpack. Then the rest of the house needs a good clean as there seems to be a layer of dust everywhere.

Today I am looking forward to seeing one of my grandsons. He lives about 5 hours away but is coming for a 4 day visit with his Dad. We are going to Dreamworld tomorrow as a treat. Can't wait to give him a big hug as I miss him a lot. Well best go and get back into those boxes. Till next time........... Take care.
