I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and no matter how well we plan sometimes things just don't work out the way we had hoped. It seems that since the GFC and the bad economy of recent times, that house prices have fallen considerably. This is ok in normal circumstances because you usually make up what you lose when you buy but unfortunately not in our case. We have spent some major $$ in the past few years on our beloved home and it seems that it now owes us more than it's worth so our plans to sell it have been put on hold - After all I love it too much to give it away !!
So instead we have decided to continue with the few changes we would have made to the house should we stay and have decided to re-assess our situation and change our future plans accordingly. It means changing a lot of what we had planned but that's life.......
What do you think of my new chairs I purchased last week? They were the bargain of the century !! Cream Leather Electric Recliners which retail at $1999 each, we purchased them from the local auction house for just $540 for the pair - can you believe it? They have been on my wish list for sometime and I am thrilled to own them.
This week I have been paper piecing again - I can't seem to get enough of it lately - It is just so easy to do in front of the telly at night and I love fussy cutting to make up new shapes and patterns. I now have 17 in my pile of "This Goes With That" Hexagons
Including this week's additions
I have also added some hexagons to my Shabby Hexagon Quilt stash - I am really enjoying doing these ones - A lot of them are made from my favourite fabrics and will be a constant reminder of them once it is made.
What do you think? It has been hard cutting into some of my treasured pieces but I think it will be worth it in the end.
This afternoon I have fussy cut another batch ready to be sewn through the week.
What about you - What's in your sewing basket this week?
