All in all, a perfect summer project. Thanks again, Dana, for trusting me with this job. I can’t wait to hear what you think.
Okay, now the talky part. I won’t be offended if you only come here for the mediocre pictures of quilts, so I’ll put one more at the bottom for you folks.
Summer is rolling along quickly. Friday was our last day of swimming lessons. A very happy experience for all involved. The kids made great progress and it was so nice to be able to just go and watch this year. In years past I’ve done a ‘mom and me’ class with the youngest child and by the time I get everyone changed, myself included, both before and after each 1/2 hour lesson, the morning was gone. This was a much more relaxing way of doing things. Hence the reason we signed up for a second session.
And just when I was starting to feel ready to enjoy some lazy last weeks of summer, our plans have drastically changed. We are suddenly buying a new house. I’m sure you are asking ‘How does one ‘suddenly’ by a new house?” One week ago today I could not have given you an answer to that question.
All I know is this: the possibility of buying another house has been on our radar for a while. Our current house has always been somewhat frustratingly dysfunctional. As the prices in this market have dipped considerably we’ve started to see what was out there in our price range. A week ago tonight I had totally put that notion on the back burner and decided to just get my kids ready for school. Then some quirky things happened on Monday that led me to a house listing online. We looked at it the next day, made an offer two days later and after a few counter offers, we are officially moving about 20 minutes away from where we live now. I don’t know what in the world I am going to do about my kids starting school, but somehow we’ll know the right thing to do. This I DO know, when something is right, God shows you the way and it just suddenly feels like the right path to take. And things can happen fast.
And why am I blathering on and on about this? Well it probably means blogging and etsy-ing get put on the back burner for a while longer. But I am thinking about having a tag-sale of sorts to get rid of some of my fabric. Because I’m not sure I want my husband (or anyone else) to know how much I really have. Yikes.
