We’ve signed and handed over the contract. Now all we can do for the next few days is wait.
On Thursday the building inspection is happening, and we’ll be going through the place at the same time, frantically measuring and plotting each room, each door, window, power outlet (precious few) and where the services are.
I spent quality time yesterday in all the large DIY outlets, picking up brochures, paint cards, swatches, catalogues, the lot. I have come away with most of a dead tree. The scissors have come into play, and while my book is full of colour chips and visual reference, the dustbin is full of discarded purples, browns, yellows, reds and oranges. She’s going to be clothed in neutrals, mostly, with a little fresh green here and there. My Pinterest Queenslander Inspiration board is filling up fast – I know a couple of you have already been for a quick visit, but if you haven’t do take a look:
My sewing room feels a little weird. There’s no visible sewing. Everything is neatly put away, waiting for me to have a few clear days to put the sandwich for Amistad together, or cut more pieces for Steampunk. I’m going to need the desk space to play project manager for the renovation…
One thing I will be doing is a little more embroidery, so I can join the SAL on Sunday. I can’t let my sewing life slip entirely!
