My quilting thoughts and inspirations sprinkled with a glimpse of life down on the farm

Discombobulation... (and a few houses)...

Discombobulation, at sixes and sevens, out of sorts, clipped feathers -  I've been suffering from it all lately.
A month ago, my sewing cave looked like this, then it looked like this -
Bedroom and sewing cave
In the process, my internet connection looked like this.
Satellite disconnected so builders could add more joists.
So as well as having all my sewing things (and our bedroom) stacked away in the spare room (everything I wanted was at the bottom of the pile in the back corner!), I've also been unable to connect with all my quilty bloggy friends. (And it amazed me how much of our farm business is dealt with online). With a few other things going on, it's made me feel quite Discombobulated! (Can you tell, I just love that word!).
However we now have the internet back, homelife is in a bit better routine, and while I still cant always find everything I need, I feel a bit more settled - yaay!!

My sewing has been spasmodic but I do have a couple of houses to share.
 A few months ago I asked if anyone wanted to swap window features with me - Pat, Carol, Annette, Nanette, Leeanne and Michelle have all helped boost the variety in my houses (thank you, ladies).

What better place than a building site for my scrappy houses.

Here is another house I completed yesterday. It is from the JustTakes2 quilt that I have finally been able to make a start on (more in another post when I have my photos sorted) .

I'm looking forward to catching up on all your blogs - thanks for visiting, and  happy sewing every-one,

Oh what fun it will be to be all put back together and with more space! The process in the meantime isn't much fun, but I am sure it will be worth it!

Michelle said...

It will be worth it when it's finished... until then hang in there!
Your houses look neat you must have quite a wee town by now :O)

Oh No! Cut off from the world and also from your sewing stuff? Definitely the cause of major discombobulation! Hope all is back to normal soon, and you're all settled into the wonderful new sewing cave.

Good word usage!! I must say I really don't enjoy the process of renovating but the result is always worth it. Love your houses.

Oh, I so know what you are going through!! But when it all goes back together, you'll be in seventh heaven. Nice little houses - love the windows :)

Suz said...

Sounds like something Mary Poppins would say. Well I am glad that the house is supposed to look like that! Was a bit worried to start off with that you had suffered from some sort of misadventure. Middle of winter - hmm, not the greatest time to have great big holes in the house!

Shirley said...

Was getting worried about you my friend. Glad all is now well. Would love to know where that word came from. Soon be shipshape and Bristol fashion.

Leeanne said...

Yes I think Suz is right.....that does sound like something Mary Popins would say! Maybe she could pull some order out of her magic bag for you?
Your houses look great on your house!

Maria said...

So pleased you are back. Wondered where you had been. When you have your new cave and bedroom it will be all worth it..
Love the houses and they look great on site.
Do you want some more window features ?? Please send me your address.

Grethe said...

Good luck with it all; lots of new space eventually :-)
Love your houses, great idea with the motives in the windows!

Cottage Tails said...

Oh my how thrilling! A brand new sewing cave droooooool. (never mind the bed room) I'm looking forward to seeing it all finished and set up.
Love Leanne

Janet O. said...

I love that word, too. How fun to be getting a new bedroom AND sewing cave--if you can just survive the process.
I love the little window features. : )
This was definitely a themed post.

Katie said...

Love your houses. Great windows!! :-)

Linda in Calif. said...

Wow! What a process you are going through!! Well, what can you say except it will all be over someday and you'll be so happy with it.

Rose Marie said...

What a great space you will have once all the hard work is done.
