There is stuff all over my house.
The dining room is filling rapidly……while Elise’s room is emptying slowly.
I honestly had no idea she had so many treasures.
We are getting there to and Elise having a couple of days off work is definitely helping.
The second lounge chair she bought at the op shop for $5 each has been recovered and I have made new chair cushions for it….you can see one of the chairs in the first photo with the black buckets sitting on it. The other chair is in her room covered with a mountain of “stuff”.
There is heaps more stuff since I took those photos….apparently we are supposed to get most of it in two cars to take to Bendigo Friday. Luckily Ashley is borrowing a furniture van from a friend and bringing the big stuff down on Saturday….along with a friend to help move said furniture.
A comfortable cushion of corduroy stuffed with pure sheep’s wool that has been well washed has been constructed all ready for the new member of the family when Elise finally is chosen by her cat.
I have even managed to sneakily suggest (and pack) a sewing machine for Elise to use. My argument was she might need to mend something like a curtain or clothes or make something.
I’m not sure how much she believed me but it’s one less machine in my sewing room and who knows – to fill in the hours she might take up sewing or quilting or even mending her own clothes.
Ok so by this stage I’m delusional…..but I live in hope.
