Three Weeks Later

I did get 12 of my Mill Girls blocks done before the movers came.......... I sure am glad I did.... I didn't get to sew again till this week.................



We (I) am getting unpacked and finding places to put everything. I can start on the things that were in storage next week......... I have put a lot of things upstairs. It is an unfinished attic that is 2000 square feet of storage for the things that I don't have room for in my little studio. I am keeping only current projects in the studio and it is still very crowded............

The landscaper came three days ago and planted grass seed...... I sure hope it sprouts soon. All of that dirt gets tracked in the house and I am not that fond of vacuuming every morning.


Thanksgiving we had 16 people here on Thanksgiving. Kim and her family all came and helped with the cooking...... It was grand to have family around...... The weather was warm enough for some folks to eat on the porch. They played games in the yard and all the men talked sports while we ladies cooked.................


This is the morning sky. The sun rises on the back of the house and I can see it from the bedroom window.............. What a lovely way to wake up....................

At Long Last.................

Well, here it is.......... The house is complete................. We are taking small things there each day this week and the movers will come on Friday for the furniture in this house........

Saturday Jason will help us get the furniture for the guest room out of storage and I will be able to get that room in order..............


I now have a dishwasher........ Oh Happy Day..................


And a large refrigerator..................


And a stove with an oven that works consistently. The stairs lead to the second floor where all of my extra fabrics are being stored right now..........


A nice vanity at which to put on my war paint each morning..............



And Lem's side of the bathroom............. There is even a small room just for the water closet.





The great room, foyer and dining room.................



Those two birds are a pair of Bald Eagles that were sitting by the pond on Saturday...... Lem enjoys sitting on the porch and watching the world go by...........


I have met some lovely neighbors and I am looking forward to spending the next six months unpacking..................VBG.......................

YOU WON'T BELIEVE THIS.............

WE ARE MOVING.......................(AGAIN)......................

The movers arrive early on November 11th..... A week from tomorrow......... Now I have lots to do before the Big Day..............

They are finishing up the last minute details on the house so I will wait till later to take pictures. Right now the front door is the wrong color and the stove is sitting in the breakfast nook........

Yesterday it was swarming with people doing last minute touch-ups and such...............

Of course that means I will have to dismantle my studio once again........... And who knows when I will get back to sewing. I also have some Christmas sewing to get done that takes priority....

We packed so long ago that who knows what we actually brought with us from Massachusetts.

Now on to the Mill Girl Quilt that I am making for the Quilt Along in the
SBS-and-Other Elm Creek Quilts Yahoo Group................

I have all of my hourglass blocks together and I am now ready to assemble the blocks.



I even have four blocks assembled and I would have more but I managed to put some of the hourglass units together the wrong way and had to frog my way out.............

As we know, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are my busiest days...... I have groups that meet on those three days...........

Today I will be getting some cooking done and Joyce is coming by this afternoon to help me start the packing..............

Perhaps house pictures soon..............
