  1. It's very exciting to see all the nine patch combinations, it will be interesting to see them all together. I love your tote, the light stitching on blue looks really good, and lovely FG fabrics. I need to find some of these great op shops bloggers go to....there is never anything exciting at mine, but your bargains look right at home. Great job on the living room. Those clubs look like they need little patchwork covers.

  2. Love your bag. The white thread on blue looks lovely. Now, I'm just picturing you playing golf.... In my mind, I can see Mr Floss swinging the clubs and you in the golf cart merrily stitching away. That way you can enjoy the great outdoors AND get more stitching done.

  3. love your bag and block lea,love your renovated funiture,you are very clever,well done.xx

  4. Lot's happening at your place!! Love all your painting projects and your bag is really pretty.

  5. Hi Lea. Love the ladder idea. We don't get council hard rubbish around here. The meanies!
    I've got a couple of clubs as well. Nice to smack a ball every now and then. I don't play as I can't drive for nuts, but I do like to putt.
    The PE teacher at my son's school would use his driver for his frustrations at home. He would write the name of the student who had been the most difficult that day on a ball and then belt it over the fence. It would give him a great deal of satisfaction! A great way to release frustration and move on. :)

  6. Love your nine patch blocks they look great, love the bag, great colour combination

    the desk and ladder look fabulous, can't wait to see the room with all it's decorations

  7. Wow! You have been busy. Your bag looks fantastic with the stitching panel variation. I love what you have done with the desk. A great makeover. Have fun putting everything back in your family room. It will be just like new. Let's hope you don't get too addicted to chasing little balls, just have great fun and get fit while doing it.

  8. Love all the things you have been doing...busy, busy!

  9. love everything about the post except the golf sticks.........crazy to hear your busy busy..........

  12. Wow Lea, so much happening at your place!! Your bag is lovely in blue, very pretty. Your painting jobs are wonderful, I see things like that and wish I had the nerve to give it a try. Enjoy the golf.....
