At how my husbands brain works that is. Firstly he insisted that we sell all our lovely antique furniture, for not a lot of money. Then he doesn't like the hire furniture available for dressing the house so he turns around and buys new furniture. Which I don't like and had no say in selecting. Then threatens to leave because I say I'm unhappy with what he has done.
Now, I spent the whole day mowing the lawns and working on the gardens getting them looking good for the first inspection. And what does he do? Goes up on the roof and clears the gutters putting leaves all over my perfect lawns.People say selling a house is stressful but it is even worse when you have a husband like mine.
I have fallen out of the loop again with the TAST stitching but Triple Chain is one of my favourites. I use it time and again. Once you free it from the one before and the one after it takes offf. Here is my sample from 2010
There are some great examples of this stitch over at Pintangle.
I spent yesterday looking for somewhere to rent on the island and finally found a lady who had bought another house, was moving from her old house and agreed to rent it to me for the next year. It needs some work done and I can't move in until November but that doesn't matter. I have somewhere to live.
It is fenced and I am allowed to have my dogs there, the verandahs are all screened and are at both the front and back. It also has a wet area on the back verandah as the owner is an artist.
I will have to put a lot of stuff into storage as there are only 3 bedrooms but it has a large living area with a big open fire for winter. Across the road is bushland.
One block down is the beach.
And it looks as though the fish are biting.
Someone has got their crab pot in the spot I usually have reserved.
And instead of a bus I'm going to have to travel by ferry. It is all so exciting.
There is just too much on at the moment to be able to stitch. Well, that is not quite true. I'm stitching curtains. I hate stitching curtains but our first open house inspection is this coming weekend so it has to be done. I'm off today to try and find somewhere else to live, that is a rather high priority. Stitching is very low on the list at the moment. Back to work.
