Nora and I spent 5 hours waiting for appliances to be delivered for our new kitchen the other day. (The master Osc was having some Abuela time). We chatted, breastfed, slept and relaxed on the freshly sanded floor of my soon to be bedroom. Isn't she adorable? That hat was mine when I was little.
I admired the shadows as the afternoon light crept across our newly painted walls. I admired old borer marks on the baltic pine floor. Prior to sanding the floor was japan black, I had no idea the timber was so light, it is lovely. I look forward to seeing it oiled.
I've started a paper pieced patchwork. Not sure what it will become, but after the hearts, it is nice to keep up the hand sewing in the evenings. I will always love playing with pattern and colour and fabric.
ps I loved seeing the local cornersmith café through Luisa Brimble's eyes.
pps I'll show you the finished hearts, once we have moved in and they are hanging.
