I'm not dead, I'm a home owner.

Sorry for the 2 month long absence in blog land, how ever things in real life are steaming ahead. I have happy news that we have finally bought a house in a country town!

We had a very short settlement of 28 days and moved in over the Queen's birthday weekend!
I had been on annual leave to set up the house (which is going really well), when last Tuesday, I found out I was losing my job . The head office is closing down our division, so the store has a maximum of 10 weeks left but I expect it will close very quickly.

On the sewing front I have set up my new sewing room. I have decided to paint the walls to a soft purpley-blue colour.  I am working on two dresses at the moment, but I can't find enough time in the week to make much progress except at my sewing class.

Recently I went on a shopping trip with the ladies from my sewing class, it was a great day, and I plan on doing a blog post on it soon. One of the highlights of the day was buying some fabric from Alannah Hill section of "Clear It" in Brunswick. I plan to make a pendrell blouse with the fabric, when I receive the pattern.  

Thanks for reading.


Foot Note: as of the 14/7 my store was closed down. I have been transfer to another divison with is so much closer to home. I start on the 2/8 so I have 20 days off. Woohoo.

I have been doing heaps of gardening as our  back garden is massively overgrown.  Just to give you an idea of how over grown the yard is (the front doesn't compare), we discovered an established lemon tree amongst lots of over grown plants bushes and trees. I never thought I would get so excited about gardening or going to the hardware store, i can see the potential in our house & yard, for me it's quite exciting.  I think if you own a house, you'll know what I mean. :)
