Altered view.....

Happy Valentines to all. According to the radio, teachers will receive the most valentine cards today followed by mothers. In this technological age probably lots of emails, twitters, facebook messages etc will replace cards. Myself, I got a very offhand Happy Valentines from my hubbie over breakfast this morning. I'll be waiting awhile for the roses dare say, haha.

For the last 3 months our street has been getting an upgrade. For the last 10 days this has been the view from my sewing room;








This ones a bit blurry but you get the drift. At least twice a day tables and the like need to have the layer of dust wiped away. Dry washing has a 'feeling' to it and any outside conversation leaves dust in your mouth. 6.30 every morning we have a lovely young girl who knocks on our door to ask us to move our car out of the street if we intend to use it that day (there goes any spontanious shopping trips)
No need to say how over it I am.
(This is where I apologise to all Aussie bloggers who are or have faced fires and floods in the last weeks)


I decided to make a couple of placemats to match my table topper. I watched a binding tutorial and used the technique which worked out OK.



Starting to stitch an Easter panel for a little bag for my gd but thats for another day.

Hi Sharyn, it's amazing how these things just disturb us... even if you don't want to go out, when it becomes you 'can't' go it is quite off putting! love the placemats... the internet is so great for learning things...

Fully understand about the works crew. We had 12 months of drainage work in ours and surrounding streets. Love your pinwheels.

Love those placemats and table topper. Hope that road work is finished soon so it doesnt keep putting dust everywhere - there's enough of that around without having it added to. lol. The internet sure is handy for learning so many things.
