I've finally done it!

After much thought, I've finally decided to set up a blog! So far, it has been relatively easy, considering that I am a card-carrying techno-wimp. One of the main reasons for my blog is to document the progress on converting the carport to a u-beaut sewing and quilting room for me! At the moment, it is a disaster area because everything had to be pulled away from the walls so that they could be sheeted, plastered and painted.

I had to bite the bullet and turf out some things (this is also a work in progress). So far, I have closed my eyes and thrown out the two years of Better Homes and Gardens which went back to 1981. It wasn't easy. Then I started on ancient copies of Australian Country Craft and Decorating, some so old they didn't have the separate pattern sheet! I've taken out the patterns that I like (and I might get round to doing) and put them in plastic sleeves. Then I threw the magazines out!

Most of the plastering is done and is scheduled to be finished on Thursday. Here's hoping!


  1. Congrats on the new blog Diann.......I will be watching the transformation of your carport to sewing room with interest!! My sewing room is bursting at the seams at the moment as it has become home to anything that won't fit anywhere else while we undertake renos in the rest of the house....can't wait to have it back so I can get it reorganised!
