it's that time of the year............

Yep the most beautiful time of the year...............wattle time.............it always amazes me how some insignificant bush will just sit there all year and suddenly in August it bursts into a mass of gorgeous golden yellow...........it's still frosty and cold but to me it means winter is almost over and spring is on it's way......
with a change to work due to no technology I filled my day in with a few more renos..............
Mr Chooky was working on the bathroom...............I touched up some spots painting skirting boards and architraves etc............the bathroom is not finished yet but looking a million dollars on what it was...........
And when I got home I quickly got some wood in and the washing off the line and finished off 14 (14/32) of the inner compass sections............I must keep plugging away.......I still haven't got back to do anything on my retreat quilt so I need to keep the momentum up or I will have nothing done when I go back to class..............
Hope you find some stitching time.........be it 5 mins or 30mins it all adds up.........and I am trying to find more of those short opportunities..........
Catch you later..............

  4. Absolutely right about the short opportunities. If I waited for a block of time nothing would happen - sewing or otherwise. Great to see you're on a roll.

  9. It's a different time of year here, but still for us it is "that" time of year -- when the dogwood leaves begin to turn red, then we know that summer is waning. This summer has been beastly hot Near Philadelphia and in many other parts of the US, too. I won't mind having to look for a sweater in another six weeks....

  21. Remodeling is a hard job! Especially if you really need the space that is getting revamped. Hope yours goes quickly for you. The wattle bush is lovely, and I am assuming it is the pic in your header also?

  22. That vanity is gorgeous, love your bathroom progress. Your wattle is a much prettier yellow than the gorse we have flowering at the moment....lol
    Now if I could just catch those elusive few minutes and find my needle......
