Life has settled.
The house is in order; just some fine tuning needed in the new Elefantz room and the new office/prayer room.
The kids love their new homes.
Mr E is almost half way home as I write this, so he should be here in around 3 hours.
I'll share a little photo journal of the changes in the rooms over the past few days.
This used to be Blossom's room; the dust strewn empty one I showed you on Friday.
Please come inside...
This was Sam's room, but it's now the new office and prayer retreat. I still need to do things in here (like pretty curtains) etc...
And both rooms have air conditioning!!! \o/\o/
This is the first time, after living in the tropics for 2 1/2 years, that I have had air conditioning in my office and sewing space. I am so blessed. It has helped enormously with my menopausal hot flushes!
During the evenings I've been continuing to stitch the remade version of "A Christmas Story". Four blocks finished, four to go...
Thanks you to Kris and Chris, who have offered to help me out with some Aviary fabric if I run out of my small stash. The quilt blocks are so pretty in Aviary - very different to my original version with the deep burgundies and winter greens; though it was very pretty too!
It seems right though. Linda in the US now owns my original 'A Christmas Story', and the colours are perfect for her winter Christmas, whereas this lighter version is perfect for my summer Christmas in Australia! Isn't that great!?
The quilt I've made using some of my Give Thanks blocks is ready to have the binding sewn down...
It's just a simple square-in-a-square design, but looks quite pretty.
I was asked if I'd share the new 'Give Thanks' block I made for the quilt, and I thought, "Yes!"...after all, you might like to make a quilt with the blocks too, and this new little Give Thanks is a happy addition.

Now to get back to making a welcome home lunch for Mr E! Chicken pasta salad today - protein and carbs after his very long ride home to my waiting arms....
