Once Upon a Time

I have managed a little more progress on my
Once Upon a Time BOM

The top six blocks are all sewn together and the bottom three
are ready with some sashing attached.

All the remaining sashing is cut and the binding is made.

I have also pieced the bonus block for the cushion.

I have now boxed it all up and it will have to wait for some more of my attention at a later date.

We have found out this week that our Landlord is selling ....arghhhh
so I am busy trying to get various projects organised to be packed.

We have realised very fast that we are 
spoilt for space and that we are not going to be able to replace this place :(

Sharon is going to loose her sewing space :(
OMG where has all this fabric come from ... eeekk 
packing that really quick before the questions start! lol

We are currently enjoying 5 bed rooms, two living areas, a huge dinning, a rumpus room and of course my sewing space and somehow we have to fit all of "us" and our "stuff" in a much smaller house.
Really ... a 3 bed room home with one living and no garage and no garden shed ... that is just NOT going to be possible let alone work ... hello, as of the 10th August I have 2 teenagers! lol
I am really sorry Mr. Real Estate Agent but  I also need a kitchen with bench space as I don't plan on dishing up meals by placing the 6 plates (on a normal night and up to 10 when the step kids come over) on the floor because there is no bench space......

OK that's my "rant" for the day. :)
I'm off to bury my head in my fabric stash!
That will make me feel better right?

Enjoy your day doing something you love,
