Oh Dear.......

So I guess sewing in your pyjamas at lunch time with a sink full of breakfast dishes was not an option.....

At Last

The house has started.  But first...a picture of sunrise (in the middle of winter)

Meet Adrian...he's the man in the warm and dry cab making everything flat.

Two days later and Adrian is still going.

Adrian has had to go away and hes coming back to do the shed site and the he's left a new toy for the kids to play on.

However see the water tank in the foreground...some how my BAM has to get it up to the top of the hill....and it is rather large...too big for any trailer I've seen

The most important milestone in the project has been met...the porta loo has turned up

Work so far.....all the sub floor is week they pour the slab.

What else have I been doing?

I have finished this

And I have been shopping (at the craft fair at Jeff's shed in July) and got the new Kelly Wulfson pattern....very talented lady

Then I bought Jenny Mc Whinney Redwork book (and she even signed it). It is single thread and I think I could even manage to do one in Red and one in Blue for the boys......

400 of them

I have been busy with my queen size bed cover.  I am crocheting granny squares and then these are all going to be crocheted together to form a queen size bed cover.

The only draw back is that there are four hundred of these to be made.

 Which means  lots of these

Which then become lots of these

Which become these (not as many)

Look at all those tails that need sewing in......

Very ambitious I think! 

I have made 200 wheels and about 100 white half way there. 

My aim is to finish it before our new house is finished (which is March 2013)
