More paving and a new toy!

Slow and steady with the paving projects at my house but I am
 getting there bit by bit, this is the round bed that I decided
 to remove because it just doesn't fit into my overall plan....
I also wanted to raise the border up so it is a little above
ground level, so the digging out of the old pavers begun....
Weeds gone and some blue metal in to level up the area....
I did my best to follow the same pattern and when I got to this
stage I had ran out of whole pavers, I pulled all the off cuts out
 from behind the shed  to see what could be done....
Then came the fun part, I unpacked my new toy and fitted the
correct cutting blade, made a cuppa and read the instructions
and did some googling on cutting pavers with a grinder....
Excited and a little nervous I gave it a go!
And I am very happy with the results, It's a little more
dangerous than my patchwork cutter but I am pleased to say
 I came out with all my fingers and toes....LOL!
And then my favourite part sweeping the sand into
 all the cracks, this part is very therapeutic indeed!
Ta Dah! 3 unsightly spots all patched up...
I still have another little fix up spot that requires some
attention but for now that's on the ever growing to do list....
It is all still a bit gritty out there from the sand but looks so much
better, not perfect but I love Rustic at my
"Little Home Sweet Home"
 I am eager to start my privacy wall next but
too busy this week with party planning....
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my journey with me,
I really do appreciate all your support and comments....
 
Until next time, Happy stitching
 
Kate

Hello Kate,

Great job on the paving, I used a angle grinder to cut the tops of some drums a few weeks back, sparks certainly do fly.

Happy days.
Bev.

No job is too big or small for a woman with power tools!! You are doing a fabulous job with your home renovations Kate. Brilliant bit of block paving repair if I may say so. I can't wait to watch you take on that patchwork privacy wall. If you ever need a cement mixer you can borrow mine any day of the week..... keep up the good work... you rock! xxx
