Sewed and stitched a bit

Life is full of surprises and we have really seen that in this past week or two. We found out that an appartment that is perfect for us was coming on sale. After that we have been busy with cleaning and arranging our appartment so it's ready to put on sale, meeting with the realtor several times, having appointments with the bank about bigger mortgage etc. And did I mentioned cleaning? It's a big job to get the appartment in top shape for showings. And if all that wasn't enough I also had a job interview this week and on Friday I found out I got the job! :) Next week we'll go to the bank again, I'll sign the employment contract, we'll put in an offer for the appartment and I will start my new job. It's not my dream job but the main thing now is to have a job. It's not a horrible job either so I'm sure I will do ok there. :) I will keep looking for a more suitable and better paying job.

So as I mentioned we have been cleaning and we also took some of our stuff to store elsewhere to make more room. I had a few bags of fabric that I didn't want to leave on sight but didn't want to put away either so I started to sew. :) I sewed a pair of decorative pillows to our bedroom. The white fabric is embroidered with white thread and it looks really pretty. I also put the new curtains up and the matching pillow cases to our old decorative pillows.



I also sewed two new pillow cases for pillows on our couch.


And as I got on so well with my sewing machine I continued and sewed these bench covers for our sauna. Thay have already been used so they are a bit wrinkly.

I haven't had time to stitch a lot this week but I put a few stitches in to my jungle. A shy-ish hippo is taking its shape.
