Never Say Never.... Merry Christmas Everyone....

Well I didn't think that I would manage it but after a 17 hour straight sewing mission I did it.  I finished the quilt for my mother and father inlaw.  All that is left is to give it to them later this afternoon.  Christmas Day Australia 2010.

This is what I was up to on Christmas Eve morning.

And here is my progression within a 17 hour marathon mission to finish it off.  I am absolutely beat but so relieved and proud of myself that I acomplished the impossible.  Merry Christmas Pa & Pa Hill... Hope you like your christmas present.

I love Ebay......

These are the three amazing pieces I found on ebay.  The previous owners were very generous and cancelled the auction so that I could buy them for my beautiful little girl's room.  $100AUS for all three pieces.  They are genuine era pieces with hand painted flower designs on them.  She will be the luckiest little girl in the world once I finish the room over the next few months.

Shabby Chic

On another note.  I have been hit with inspiration to do my daughter's room in a shabby chic style for her to make it a French Provincial princess room.  I won't be able to start the room for another few months but in the mean time have been collecting furniture and other pieces off ebay.

I can't wait to be able to start.  I picked up these amazing three pieces of furniture for a steal at $100AU and will be picking them up in a few hours.  Once I have them home I will add them here to show and tell.  In the mean time, be inspired yourselves by some of the photos I am using for inspiration. 

Even though our room won't be no where near as good as these, I will certainly try my hardest to make our room as beautiful as possible.

Will I ever finish it before Christmas?

Things have been so busy my end.  I have not had much time for anything lately so I am now frantically trying to finish my christmas present off for the inlaws but am truely running out of time.

I will be sewing my little heart out all week to try and make the Santa dead line but I don't like my chances currently.  We shall see, we shall see.  Stay tuned, I will keep you all posted.
