Quiet .... like a Sunday morning....

It was pretty quiet this morning when the Prince and I (and Chelsea!) set out for our walk.....I have put together a few pics taken on the way...........including me putting my best foot forward and Chelsea waiting for himself to come out of the shop with the paper...it was like "I am so not going anywhere without him..." We have some great shops - including a fabulous bookshop and an antique shop - Antiques and More @ 24 - which we always have a peek in when we are out and about.....haven't been into the shop for a while though as I always think I can just look, but invariably can't .........so we just peer thru the windows (I am sure others do too as there are sometimes nose "prints" on the windows!)

one of the photos is of some animals in a paddock near the school......there is quite a contrast between the school lawn and the paddock.....we really do need some rain........Angas Park is one of our favourite places.......and always worth a a look if you are visiting Angaston.......not sure if you can see it but behind the rose is a fabulous old house - the garden is beautiful even with the drought.

Yesterday we spent looking for a new lounge suite.....I felt like Goldilocks....(but anyone who knows me will vouch for the fact that I am nothing like Goldilocks).....this one's too soft, this one's too hard.......and most of them were plain.....well ...... plain......or just ugly! Some of them felt like they sucked you in and wrapped themselves around you....it was scary!! We had a break from sofa shopping to go and watch Rhi play netball....it was pretty warm - about 26C and the girls were great....I worked up a sweat just watching from the sidelines! After the netball we thought we would have a look at one last shop.......walked in and there it was.....ta da.......a vision in chocolate leather.....so it looks good.....is it comfortable???.........yeeeeeess!! And better yet it was on special....!!! We did look around a bit more but kept coming back to this one......so ordered it

and a three seater as well.............after all, Chelsea has to have somewhere sit! So that done we ventured out to North Adelaide and treated ourselves to an early dinner before driving home.......

After messing about with a bit of housework this morning I finally got into the sewing room and had a major tidy...........well I had to - I was struggling to find things....so dragged out a couple of books as I have to make new pillows/cushions for the lounge......

......and probably a throw as well........bought this book a couple of weeks ago at The Patchwork Apple and have a few jelly rolls stashed away and a long weekend coming up so no excuses for not getting something done!

Here is a pic of my messy room before I tidied it up a bit.......unfortunately the battery "died" in the camera before I could take a pic of the new look room so you will have to take my word for the fact that I did do it........

It looks worse than it is......really..........I have been looking a mags and patterns and just putting them on the sewing table....instead of where they belong...........so once they were put away it was much better! I will post an "after" photo during the week.........this photo was taken to send to Karen - who was taken to task for having an untidy scrap basket last week.......now this is untidy!!

I even managed to finish a small project this afternoon - I will post a pic with the new look sewing room later in the week.......

'Til next time......have a great week......Lorraine

You certainly have been busy. Love the lounge. Nothing like the smell of new leather either. My sewing room is pretty messy at the moment but nothing a little..ok...big tidy can't fix.

Oh - we were in Nuriootpa yesterday, visiting David's parents. Of all the towns I love Angaston the most - so quaint. I've had a bit of a look around Angus Park but that was a long time ago.....should go back.
Your sewing space looks like my whole house at the moment - school holidays......... need I say more?
