My Quilting Hiatus

It has been a loooong time since I've posted anything about quilting. It's not because I have given up quilting although my sewing machine might think so. :-) We have been in the process of buying a house since last December and we finally closed on March 13th!! We are so excited to have our own place and we are keeping very busy with renovations. We are redoing the kitchen, the floors, two of the bathrooms, and replacing 5 windows. This is all very new to us so we are learning a lot and enjoying getting to choose all the fun stuff. I have spent more time at Home Depot in the past week that in my entire life! I even had to go find a hose bib one day and came home with the right thing. I never knew that little water turner on thingy was called a hose bib. ;-) Anyway, I will return to the quilting world soon... after I get done sewing curtains and packing boxes and unpacking boxes and putting things away.

Wow, I learned something new, too! A hose bib. Who'd have thought? I must say I do like "water turner on thingy"...that is more my language... :)

Nice to see you back quilting and blogging. Hope to see new projects from you soon.

I know how you feel. I've been in my new house for two months and have yet to finish setting up my sewing area.

Good luck, and congrats on buying a house!
