Not much sewing the next days (weeks)

I guess there will not be that much sewing the next days (weeks). We've started to paint the house outside and there is a lot to do. And I hope my arms/shoulders will not give me to much pain. I feel really good now in my right shoulder, my left............eh.....won't speak so much about that one. But if I paint really slow, relax and feel how much I can do each time, I hope it will be ok.
We also decided to change colour from a dirty kind of pink to a lovely light grey. And today after work my DD and I started to paint the stairs up to our apartment. The neighbour under also started to paint her part. Chatting and laughing while paiting made the work go fast and easy. Tomorrow I continue on the rails. It is fun.............so far.

Quilting............ have just one flower left to stitch on Butterfly garden block 2. And I know block 4 is on its way to me now.

Saying for today:
If women's work is never done... why start!?

You are so right, dear : things have to be done, some day or another. I'm happy seeing your home again, and I'm sure the new color will be so nice in the sun (though I loved the pink too :>)
Good girl Lena, helping mum + the neighbour - working in group is much more fun...

You will soon get back to your sewing, I'm sure :>)

Hugs & smiles to you !
XOXOXOXOXOXO

Your house looks nicer with light grey SMIL Take it slow and don't rush the work. You have to take care of your arm(s).
