Yes - it is a very sad name for it. If you can suggest a better one, I would so appreciate it. I made it one weekend on a Quilt Course in Coffs Harbour earlier this year. Kristy had hers all done months ago but mine has languished because I am not really in love with the front.
But on the weekend I pulled out the leftover scraps and cutting mistakes and finally came up with a nice back to compliment the front. I even used some of the trimmed off grey fabric strips from last week's Katie Jump Kites back. Alas I like the back more than the front.

Then there is the packing WIP. It is a huge job not helped by the fact that our weather has been very stifling with heat and humidity the past week. No one wants to pack when it's 35+ degrees celcius.

We exchanged contracts on the house two days ago and since gaining access I have been preparing some of the exposed timber for painting.
We need to lighten up the interior of the house somehow. There is a LOT of exposed stained timber and all the walls are brick. So I have chosen an internal colour scheme not unlike the one I chose for our new build in Sydney.
I am starting in the pantry with the pine shelving. I bought my first power tool - a hand held sander. Unfortunately is is missing the adapter for the filter and so makes plenty of dust. The prep work is time consuming and so is painting the primer on all the timber pieces. I think I will be lucky to finish the smaller shelf this week.
This Week's DIY Stats
Completed projects - pantry shelves all sanded
Currently in progress - pantry shelves primed
Yet to start - kitchen rack
So how are you going this week? There are lots of give-aways on blogs this week but I have no time to enter them.
My boys finished up the school year today - yikes! So I have them at home whilst I pack the rest of this week and before their grandparents come up from Sydney to do some caravaning with them for the next week. School does not return until late January 2013.
I am linking up with WIP Wednesday!
