Merry Christmas (early)

Well, here it is the last Friday before the big holiday.

Are you ready?

We're skipping Christmas this year. We still are not quite settled. Lots of little repairs to do around the house (hanging light fixtures, curtain rods, fixing broken switches and outlets). Really you say? Didn't you buy a new house? Yup. Don't think we'll ever, ever buy another foreclosure/flip. We did get a good deal initially, but things are adding up. Yikes.

Enough whining.

Tell me what you are doing this year. Be sure if you are a no-reply blogger (lump of coal for you) that I have a way to get a hold of you. Auntie has some presents for her followers. What's on your quilty wish list?

Talk to you on Monday! Lots of (quilty) news!

How I spent my summer vacation, sort of

I've been putting this off forever. It's been crazy around the homefront this year.

Major events:

My husband decided to retire.
Sold our house (in six days)!
Bought a house in Arizona.
Moved. Wow, now I see why people sell their stuff and start over. Lots of trips to get it all down here.
Still unpacking.
Looking for a new job (me). Uncle is retired, remember?

I do miss the Navy moves. They come in, they pack, they move, you move, they come in and unpack. Life goes on.

So, in other words, I have a nice sewing room, but I don't have the shelf space I once did. So, I have a lot to re-home. Sad for me, good for you. I still haven't decided on a new website/logo yet. Still tossing some ideas around.

In the next few weeks, I'll be listing items here at some crazy good prices. Need a back? I have an overload of charm packs (some that are very hard to find), lots of novelty prints (think I-Spy), and some patterns/books too.

Looking for anything special? Let me know. I may have it.
