This is a real short post, but just wanted to ask a question....... What do a center chimney, a cute playhouse, a white vinyl picket fenced garden area, a new refrigerator, fresh historical paint colors, new shutters, and a newly painted red door all have in common?
A NEW HOUSE FOR ME!
We are moving in this weekend. It has been a very chaotic three months, but after perseverance, signing papers on a house in a library 2,000 miles from here, and closing almost a month ago with painting, a few new interior doors, and lots of other hurdles, we are moving in Saturday. WHAHOO!
Blessings on your Work Day!

And yes - it is snowing and very cold there, but I am up for the challenge!
Blessings on your day!

Today I have fabric all over the house....... from snippets.....
to more end snippets......
to a pile of labeled quilt pieces (this quilt is a bit of a challenge)......
But the 9-patch blocks are done...
as are the side scrappy borders.....
and one of the middle four medallion pieces...
(but shhhhh......... - I am making a surprise for my mother.) Will post a photo later on (maybe Monday) with the finish! :-)
Apparently today is "Visit your local Fabric Store" Day. Hmmm........ nope. I have sewing to do! Happy Stay at Home and Sew Day!

I started this quilt January 11, 2009......... and finished it today, January 11, 2014. I don't think five years is too bad, do you?
Now, how long do think it will take me to machine quilt it? And do you think Feathers are in order? Crosshatching? I can't decide - it might take another year or two to make up my mind! Oh, good grief!
