A new project

 The best part about working in a quilt shop besides from playing with  all the new fabrics that come in, is getting to do shop samples. I am lucky enough to be doing this project called Sweet heart houses by Shabby fabrics.
 Its a great project, there are 9 blocks in total and I'm almost finished my 3rd block We will run this programme as a block of the month and to learn more you can head to the shop web site.
 I loved doing this house block with its very cute roof.
 The fabrics are so pretty. I think the range is called Penelope.
 Even more exciting for me is my new sewing room, this week the builder put the weather boards on so now it looks part of the house.
 My husband is going to paint the boards tomorrow the same colour as the rest of the house. Next is the plaster which is being started on Wednesday, it won't be long now and I'll be in there. whoo hoo!!! Can you tell I'm excited. I have been standing in there working out where things will go.  I'm sure my boys think I'm a bit mad.
 Some of my bulbs have started to flower, Spring is not too far away. The hyacinths are beautiful and smell delicious.
It looks like rain today so I reckon I'll stay in and do some sewing. I've gone back to my Gardeners Journal quilt so I want to work on that today. I hope you have a great day.
