Progress


I have been making progress. My stitching from the tent is almost finished. I have taken Leanne's advice and bought some glue to baste the hexies so I can get more sewn. (It's working a charm Leanne. Thank you for the link you sent me!) And I have been creating some fabric to make a bag with. (Photos of everything to come)

We are getting settled into our new house. We not only hear Kookaburras singing in this new house but also frogs, and last night as I hung out the washing we saw bats flying overhead. We are also beginning to discover our new area. We visited the Heide Museum of Modern Art yesterday. I really liked it and think I will go back again. So many truly beautiful things to look at there! Today we visited the Queen Victoria Markets and Lost and Found Market which Miss 18 fell in love with. She wants to move into that market and live there!

Not sure what tomorrow will bring. I want to stay home and sew. We'll see!

Yes, I've found that glue is very handy, when you can't be bothered pinning something it works very well, I've even used it to hold binding down before I sewed it down. Sounds like you are enjoying discovering things in your new neighbourhood.

It is so nice when you move into a new place that lovely surprise treasures appear!

AND you are managing to sew! The glue idea is good hey - though at times when I am sewing my hexys it falls off to soon...

Exploring sounds like fun! Love the markets.....didn't know about the Lost and Found market...might need to put that on the list of things to do when I come visit! Glad you are settling in to your new house/area.
