Well folks, we are nearly there! Four days of very hard work to shift from our old home which is directly across the water from  our new home! I’ve done lots of interesting things which included driving a medium-sized truck for one day, helping to put large metal cabinets, bookcases, a full filing cabinet, a […]

the white stuff – a mini office area …

[Fantastic Frank, via Ollie & Seb’s Haus] So what do you think of this little office nook, tucked out of the way? To me, it’s a little work of art, everything perfectly in its right place. The black and white colour scheme is just perfect. Things I love … the three floating black shelves against […]

hexagon quilt – the end of one, and the beginning of the next …

Well, it’s kind of finished … the quilt top, that is! I have to source some border fabrics (two), then prepare it for quilting, but for the most part it’s finished. This ‘Grandma’s Garden’ quilt has the rows of flowers ‘staggered’ under each other; I’m not sure if there’s a technical term for that. I […]

the white stuff – small kitchen …

[remodelista] At the end of this year, we will be fitting out some rooms to make a separate flat for my son, which will still be attached to our house but will be self-sufficient.
