Hubby moved out!

What a surprise to look at my last blog posting and realize that it was almost 3 weeks ago.  Each day there have been so many things to keep me busy,.....and sometimes frustrated. Two months ago I told you about the new studio we were building for my husband's wood carving.  That project was finished on time and then he needed to move.  Oh my, after a few hours he told me that he might need a new bookcase and a very big dumpster.  No kidding..... it took him almost 3 weeks to completely move.  Now he is gone - but fortunately, just to the back yard.

Since that project was going sooooo smoothly, we decided to do a bit of fixing up in the house, remodeling our bathrooms.  I don't need to tell anyone that's gone through this about scheduling delays.  One day in total frustration I told the workers, "I love you guys but I can't wait for the day you aren't here".  Right in the middle of all of it was Thanksgiving dinner at my house.  Oh well, company was understanding that they had to walk to the basement to use the only functional bathroom.

Finally, it's finished (almost), so why not start painting the old carving room into a new WOW color for my sewing room.  I love the new color, my husband said "Really?" and my son asked "Why?".  I will share pics as soon as they get my furniture moved in.  

While sorting through my fabric, books, etc. I found some treasures that had been "lost".  The first is a complete Berry Bloom Kit, and by complete that means pattern, all the fabric and threads for embellishment.  Sorry, the bee clasp is not included.  I took the clasp off a necklace purchased from Chico's and I've heard you can occasionally find them on Ebay.

Be the first to email me with your mailing address at and I will send you the kit.  My gift to you.

As soon as I can get back to the computer I have another great give-away so check back.
