There is still much to be done, but it’s nice to no longer have deadlines and I can just move at my own (or my kids’) pace. I haven’t sewn in a month (besides the binding on that quilt) and I’m itching to go. Last week I started unloading my boxes of stuff and it got me so excited. I even spent some time at my kitchen table cutting squares Saturday night and I was in heaven. (Can you imagine how pathetic that last sentence would sound to a lot of people?? ha ha.) Felt so good to have that rotary cutter in my hand.
Here is one of my unpacking projects: my future sewing room! [Yes, a ROOM. That annoying high-pitched sound you hear is me trying to suppress a squeal so I don’t embarrass my family.] I always forget to take “before” pictures, but here you have one. Can’t wait to take “after” pictures. Or at least “progress” pictures.
Right after we closed on the house I came to walk through the empty house, knowing it was finally ours. I had my boys with me and they were walking around saying things like: “here is where we will put our couch and here is where we will put my bed . . .” when the youngest opened a closet in the basement and said, “Here is where we will put our monsters.”
It could be that we were still talking about the same thing.
