Spring cleaning

I haven't been blogging for awhile. I've been springcleaning!!!!..
After taking steroids for a week I had the energy of an ox for a few days and started sorting and moving things.. even tidied cupboards and now I have quite a pile of things to donate to the Sallies and try and sell on Trade Me.  

to make up for what I've bought off Trade Me in the last three weeks like this hutch I bought for $22 (more storage!!!).  Just needs two drawer handles...
I made the blind too for my wee dining nook!!

Don't you love my little sewing machine clock.. Like I needed it????..
but it was only $10 off Trade Me..

I got carried away sorting dumb things like my buttons..

Well, I bought these glasses for Christmas and haven't used them since!!

Last weekend I went to a retreat (my brother calls it Rehab) for quilting ladies and I finally finished the batik quilt top called Maths Lesson that I started hmmmm well over a year ago hehe.  The pattern was in a Downunder magazine.  I loved the scrap of butterfly batik so I had to include it in a block.  Can't wait to get it quilted now.

I started making another quilt to go on the back of my hydrangea quilt which has been finished for about two years.  I'm using the rest of the hydrangea fabrics .. I doubt I'll want another one haha.
Last night I was invited to another house group.  Mondays are good nights to go out.. I'm fresh and still have energy though after Retreat we were all a tad tired.  We had a lot of laughs.  I took another old UFO and cut up a lot of squares so I can finish that one too. It feels really good to complete some of these things.

Still have to do my curtains but this weekend I get the carpet.. YAYAYAYYAY.  It will make a heap of difference even if summer will be here soon haha.

There you go.  Just saying hi to my blogging friends.  Hope you are all well..
