Moving update

Just a quick post to update my move. Our house in Florida is sold and after a whirlwind trip to Georgia and a couple days of negotiations we have purchased a home near one of our sons. So many of you have sent lovely words of encouragement the last few months and I thank you so much for your support. Quilting and blogging friends are the best! The next few weeks I will be busy packing and organizing for the move so no time for stitching. But even though we are downsizing I will have a small sewing room to start and then DH will be finishing the basement into a huge sewing studio. Something fun to look forward to but the best news is that we found a house 5 minutes from the grandchildren.

Today was my last sewing day as I scrambled to put this top together to get ready for the packing. The picture is not the best but I am pleased with the finished quilt.

Until next time, happy stitching!

I've been away for a few days, so I'm just catching up. Congrats on all the good news! I hope all goes well with the move, and you're back to sewing in no time. Remind me where you are in Florida. We just spent a few days in Pensacola for a wedding.

Wishing you all the best for the move!! The thought of soon living only 5 minutes from your grandchildren will get you through the busy weeks ahead. That quilt top is so beautiful, I love everything about it.

Good Luck on your move. I too have been downsizing and FYI you might be amazed at some of the stuff you find that you didn't remember having. D.G. L

Glad to hear that your house sold!! Nice to be able to get going on the moving part!!! Best of luck in getting it all organized---you are probably a pro at this part by now. I had to take all my stuff out of one bedroom & move it into the other bedroom. I can't find anything!!! Your quilt top is gorgeous & I think this is your color combo

Congrats on your sale and purchase! Praise be our prayers were heard. Your MIYW came out marvelous! Watch your back while packing and safe journey to your new home.

good luck with the move, hope you are back sewing in no time flat.... but you may find that closer proximity to the Grand children reduces your sewing time... enjoy whatever happens

Michele Hill said...
