Latest Catfish pic

(This was going to be) Just a quick update. I nearly finished page 2 but have pulled out QS LOL early for this rotation of the Freebie QS SAL.

(click image to enlarge)

So next update should be a pic of that sweet kitty unless something else exciting happens and chances are VERY good of that.

I do have a little chart lust for you. It’s an updated version of Selina Fenech’s Sea of Roses.

and the original version

I am also closing the poll for the Ravenscroft Moggies to the left of the screen at the end of this month,so if your favourite isn’t leading you’d best vote for it. I intend to work on the winning choice next year.

Merlin is currently leading on 56 and Morgana is on 47 with Arthur coming in at 31. I think Gwen is out of the running at the moment.

We have had the full assessment of the house done…. finally.

We’ve been waiting since last September for them to come and tell us the cost of repairs but the Feb quake buggered that all up and now the estimated cost is a little more.

They estimate that repairs will cost about $50,000 NZ to get everything right.

We haven’t got the report yet but what they said needs doing includes….

Repiling 10 piles, re-wallpapering some rooms, re-plastering in the bathroom, re-stippling the ceiling, removing some external bricks to replace them (then repainting pretty much the whole house), lifting the carpet to screw down the floorboards, ummmm…

I think I’ve got it all. They said that the house has indeed dropped at one end and another end that we didn’t know about. I’ll share before and afters of the repairs once they get underway which might not be for a while if the wait we’ve had already is any indication.

Thankfully it’s mostly just cosmetic.

  1. when Selina put her new sea of roses on FB i commented that i would love to see it charted was about to put a request for it yesterday but it was on, woo hoo!! only no money ,from ecstatic to depression in 30 seconds, i told hubby i NEED this chart, as they are my favourite colours and mermaid, need i say more i told him, but no, no calender, no sea of roses, i think i need to go sulk lol

    loving catfish!!

  2. I’m still thinking about getting it before the current sale ends, sadly Tim (and I) spend a little money today, (will share after the weekend) and he might not appreciate me buying anything else. I suppose the dollar is starting to slide a little so I could justify a purchase with that excuse. Sadly I fear I might be a good girl, like you, and give it a miss for a little while 😦

  3. I have the old version of SOR. I didn’t get the new one during the sale and now I’m thinking I should have. Did you get it?
    You are really moving along on Catfish! (I’m jealous!)
    Sorry to hear about the cost of repairs on your home, thankfully it’s only cosmetic!

  4. I also have the old version, but sadly I don’t have the new one YET. Please don’t be jealous of the Catfish, I just have more time to stitch and at least you know that it will turn out how it’s meant.
