How Cheeky!

I was going to do a post yesterday 
but it became apparent rather quickly that someone had bet me to it!

I would like to thank everyone who left me a birthday wish
and let you all know that Glenn has survived his first blog post! lol

I am choosing to believe that 40 is the new 30 :o)

Yesterday also proved to be a great day on the house hunting front.
We put in an application for a home at 10am and got the call by 12noon that
it was ours ...yay ... the stress of finding a house is over
now to pack and sell some furniture.

We are downsizing size wise but upgrading, as in a newer home.
I will no longer have my own sewing space but am
going to lay claim to the end of one of the living areas.
Now to get thinking of how I can have it set up, storage etc.

Before I go.
Recently I saw this

  and being I have the patten I thought that I might join it.
I have taken so long to decide on fabrics but whilst I was in my
LQS earlier this week I spotted a FQ Bundle of
Cherry Christmas by Annela Hoey and then I remembered this


Most of my other fabrics are all packed up for the move and these are sitting here, tempting me to start.
The Quilt Along starts on the 6th August but I think I will leave this until we have moved and settled

Have a great day.
Lily and I are off to find some more boxes :o)


  1. Lovely fabrics you have there, its a challenge having no sewing room, my son recently moved back into his room which i was using, now my stuff is crammed into plastic boxes and shoved into the wardrobe and nicely decorating the living area! Good luck with the move :)

  2. Congrats on the purchase... I hope you will be very happy there!
    Love the holiday quilt... if I didn't have 2 on the go I'd join you in this one! Good luck with that too! :)

  3. Oh yay for getting a house so quickly, hunting is so stressful. Glad Glenn survived, it was such a lovely thing to do :) Oh the quilt will look stunning, looking forward to seeing your progress.

  4. So glad you found a new place so soon - change is as good as a holiday right?? It's just the packing that drives me nuts.
    I hope you had a really lovely birthday and got suitably spoilt!

  5. Ha yes cheeky Glenn! Well Done on the new home purchase, good luck packing everything!

  6. Happy packing! Moving is fun, but stressful too!

  7. Happy birthday and happy packing. Congrats on your new house too. 2 hours is fantastic!

  8. Good news that Glenn survived. My hubby thought it was an act of great love......and bravery! And good news about the house too. It will be exciting to unpack all your fabric when you get there.

  9. YAY! So happy that you've found a house!

  10. That holiday quilt is so gorgeous, I wish I had the time LOL. I have read the first three chapters and loving it so far. I take that you are up to book 3, you have enjoyed them.
    Congrats on the new house.

  11. Happy Birthday, sorry forgot to add it. I am thinking that 50 is the new 30 LOL thats where I will be way too soon.
