Not much sewing got done this week as we had the electrician in and also have my mother-in-law staying with us. Its her first stay with us since we moved and now we have a nice new sofa bed for her in the sewing room. Apparently its quite comfy and she's enjoying her stay with us. We're having a family sewing weekend away next weekend so Mum has her machine with her and I was able to set her up to sew on my cutting table so that will give her something to do on the days when we're at work.
I was happy to see the electrician as his most important job (as far as I was concerned) was to put in some lovely bright LED downlights in the sewing room, so now I'm all set to sew!
Here is the lighting before - just a central light with not so bright globes. They were some sort of energy saving fluoro globe. I had to turn them on 15 minutes before I went into the room as they took ages to get to full brightness (which wasn't that bright!).
To finish I thought I'd share some photos of some of the lovely garden in our new house. We came back after being away for a week in our caravan to find lots of flowers had come out. They are tucked away in the garden everywhere and add a splash of colour amongst the green.
The other reason I haven't got much sewing done is that I've been helping my hubby and his friend Craig to rebuild his aviary. We had a really large aviary and this smaller one at our old place and my husband had to compromise and downsize to just this one. In the end we kept the covered section and rebuilt the front part using all new steel to fit the shape of the garden bed.
