Still Here

Yesterday was the first day I have turned the sewing machine on in weeks and it still purrs beautifully. Although the machine is still on the table the rest of the sewing room is packed away and with the house now on the market the room has to stay spotless. I am not a tidy person in the sewing room so it is better not to enter!!
However the postie delivered Block 5 of Sue Ross BOM and I thought well that won't make alot of mess so I couldn't resist,even though I haven't finished Block 3 or 4 yet.
The Prickly Pear Block with these great fabrics. So I set to and cut the fabrics before going to work yesterday afternoon and this morning it is finished and I love it. It has been the easiest block so far in this BOM and can together so quickly. There are not even any threads on the floor which has to be a first!!
The photo is a bit crooked and the colours in reality are a bit brighter but I do love it.
 The sewing room is back to it's tidy state so I have to stay out- at least til after open home on Saturday.
I am over tidying,cleaning,sorting, making trips to the tip and keeping everything like a showhome at all times. The house has been on the market for the sum total of 10 days and I am over it already so I hope it sells quickly-got to be realistic I know.
The moving company are coming this morning to do a pre move survey-I am getting them to do the majority of the packing so at least I don't have to stress about that. Then once they have been it's out to do the lawns which decided with all the rain this week that they would grow tenfold.
Am enjoying reading all the blogs and getting my buzz from seeing all the wondeerful projects that are going on.
Have a great sewing day.

OOps just noticed that I have sewn the top row on the wrong way -so Chris it's not perfect unfortunately!!
Off now to fix it.


  1. Oooooo! I like this block, and it looks do-able -- less intimidating than some of the others. I may skip ahead and do them one right away. I'm a little behind myself....

  2. Love your the blue fabric, looks familar..I think I've seen it on another blog..
    Julia ♥

  3. Your block is nice. I hope your house sells soon!

  4. That is a very pretty block. It looks perfect too!
    Selling houses is the pitts. I had to cope with Open Homes and random inspections for 9 months, and most of that time I was ill and Stew was hundreds of miles away... it's a wonder I didn't go nuts!
    I hope your home sells really fast ...

  5. I love your block. Didn't even notice the top row till you said it. Then looked again.

    Hope your house sells fast as it is a pain when they are on the market and people keep looking through.

  6. Good luck with your move, I hope you sell the house fast. it's impossible to keep a house that immaculate for more than a couple of days! you have got to have a life!!

  7. YOur block is great! That would be SO hard for me to keep the sewing room neat and tidy! What a hardship!! hope the house sells quickly!!

  8. Marls I really love this block. The colors are bright and cheery. Congratulations on the new job. That's great that you will be close to family, and as you say, with the internet your blogging friends are always close by! I hope your house sells fast. What a pain to have to keep things tidy. Just this weekend, my husband and I decided to move (locally though) so I will be going through the same thing. Just when I was doing a studio/office makeover. No fun.
