Ripe Strawberries for the Table

Finally complete is the second of the Ripe Strawberries quilt.

This is the smaller, sister quilt to the larger version pictured below.

I completed that one 3 years ago.

I always struggle to complete quilts that are for me as I have no deadline!

And they get put aside until I complete other projects.

This quilt has four of the basket blocks and I used up the remainder

of the lovely afternoon tea fabric in the backing.

It fits our round table perfectly – although when we move I plan to get a new larger table.

Its too sunny in our current backyard to take good photos of the quilts. I’ll have to find a better quilt photo spot when we finally in the new house.

New House

IMG_3482
Finally, the contracts are exchanged and the purchase of our new house is going ahead.
The downside is that it currently has tenants, and they have a lease until early May 2014.
Our lease here runs out in February 2014, so hopefully we can extend it.
The good news is that their rent is a lot more than our rent!

Ours is the one with the red roof and yes it was a big turn off when they built the enormous house next door, which didn’t exist when we first looked at our house back in January.
Can wait to get into the garden and start planting some trees.
