This 'n that

 I finally finished the Kaffe Fasset challenge quilt - voila!
In all, 240 pieces hand basted and sewn together. The quilting was simple, I just ran a line through the stars.
Will probably use it as a table topper after Christmas. Gotta get started on my next challenge.
And speaking about Christmas - here's my tree. I must say I like my tree and how it reflects in the windows. Just call me a sucker for Christmas!

The studio is going ahead strongly; today they're putting the roof on, so lots of banging and thumping overhead. Bricks are supposed to arrive tomorrow- I wonder how well we matched them to the old ones.

The Studio - cont'd

 Things are happening! Yay! The guys came to put the slab down last week. It took 3 concrete trucks to fill it all in. This little studio will have strong and deep foundations. It slowly gave me an idea of the size too.

Not much later, and the frame went up. The guys did it all in one - hot - day. Very efficient. The windows and door are in, and I love the big window looking out over the paddock.

Interestingly, the new part won't obstruct any views. You only see it from a small kitchen window, and .
you see straight through the studio's windows into neighbour's paddock.

Next week, the roof will be aligned with the existing roofline, and hopefully we'll get the bricks delivered.

With all this hot weather, I hope the aircon will come on again soon....
