It's raining, it's pouring....

Normally I wouldn't be happy about it raining, but today is a little different, because it is melting the snow, and I am beginning to see grass in my back garden. Hopefully, this will be the last of the snow we will see this Winter but, I know it likely won't be the case. In the mean time, I like to think that this long cold snowy Winter is finally coming to an end.

So... this week I have put my sewing machine to rest for a few days, and started some Spring decorating. My guest bedroom has been in desperate need of a new coat of paint for a long time. Last year I purchased the paint, however, life got in the way. Prepping the surfaces took a long time, removing the paper border, sanding the woodwork, filling nail holes with plaster. On Monday I started painting and yesterday put the final coat on the walls in the closet. My muscles are going to be so thankful the job is completed. Now I have to move all the furniture back, hopefully everything will be done today and the rest of my house won't look as if a bomb has hit it.

I did take a break Thursday afternoon and purchase some fabric for a new quilt for the bed in the guest room. This will be the first quilt I have made for me.

The only problem in decorating a room in your home it makes all of the other rooms look as if they need a fresh coat of paint. Um mm.... maybe I should do my bedroom, the sewing room and the living room.

Hope you have a great weekend.

I do hope you won't have any more snow but I realise that the winters are long in your part of the world. You obviously did a thorough job on your decoration so all you need now are the guests! Enjoy making your quilt - hope to see photos in due course.
