***blows dust away****



Long time no see!

I took the summer off to unexpectedly buy our first home.  It was a crazy experience.  Stressful experience.  But hey, what doesn't kill you, only makes you more grey stronger.  We made it out the other side just fine and slowly settling into our new home.

The upside is that I have my own space.  Before I was just utilizing a formal dining area, that was part of the living room.  We had a good 15 feet of baby gate, separating the two rooms.  Now I have 4 walls!  F.O.U.R. people.  Four whole walls.  And doors.  And windows.  I have a standard sized window and another large window.  I have lots natural light, people.  I am so excited.

The downside is that I'm still unpacking the house.  Our DD started kindergarten about 5 days after we moved in.  Between school for DD, school for DH, school for DS, various move in projects and me doing most of the unpacking alone, my sewing room must come last.  So, I won't be participating in quite a few shows that I had been invited to.  I do have lots of ideas in mind.  I'm hoping to be ready for the Christmas season.  It's just going to take some time.

I can't wait to back into the swing of things.  I miss my machine and fabrics and rulers and rotary blade....

See you soon!

Congrats on the home and congrats on the new space! How exciting to have your own personal space to fix up (or mess up, depending on the day) any way you want!

Deb ~ Thank you! I can't wait to paint my walls and finish my wood shelves. The wood is currently raw, I'm hoping to paint/stain it to match whatever wall color I pick.
