Hope your October is off to a very good start!
I am still on my high from last week with Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville!
It is hard to believe the time has come and gone, and a week has already past!
As many of you probably noticed from my last post,
MY HOUSE IS UNDER CONTRACT FOR SALE!!!!!
All of the major inspections have passed, and now I am just waiting for the appraisal to come through on the buyer's end. And, a closing date in early November is planned. I know all of you are completely baffled as to where I will be going, or what I will be doing? I AM TOO! But, never fear, plans are in the works for a place for me to stay during my transition. I AM NOT, and WILL NOT rush into anything that doesn't feel right. I do have a home in mind, I just want to get it for the right price, and if that doesn't happen, so be it. My home is waiting for me somewhere out there. Thanks for all of your support and kind messages regarding this transition!
In the meantime......a whole lotta packin's goin' on!
I have really wanted this move for a while now. Many people have asked me
if I am sad about this, since I had this home built, and my family helped
me make it a home. My answer is.......no.
I am looking forward to my next chapter in life, and it includes a bigger
and better home with some of the amenities I don't have here.
A COMPLETED SEWING STUDIO!
A BIGGER KITCHEN WHERE I CAN COOK FOR THE MASSES!
Get the picture??
So, in the midst of this move, I am gearing up for a HUGE
QUILTS OF VALOR
presentation in Kansas City, Missouri!
I am REALLY looking forward to this engagement on November 12th!
I will be presenting to the
in the morning,
in the evening.
OHHHHHH!!!!! WE ARE GONNA HAVE SO MUCH FUN!
Thanks to my friends, Kelly, Kim, Lou, Darlynn, and Ann I am getting several of the Quilts of Valor quilted from our very successful block drive I hosted on the blog last year!
I truly can't thank you quilters enough for your willingness to support our Veterans!
And thanks to all of you quilters out there that participated and sent in blocks for
the block drive!
During last week's event with Bonnie, I was contacted via Facebook by someone
from my past! Little did I know, a former substitute teacher I had in high school
would be a part of getting quilts done from this block drive! She is a Bonniac too!!!!
Portia, thank you so much for volunteering to help out with the quilting of these quilts,
and thanks to your friend Pat also! How cool is that????
And, while I was going through things, I ran across a pile of neutrals that needed taming!
These are going into Bonnie's Leader & Ender Challenge!
And I leave you with this........
I "Peanutized" myself thanks to my friend Barb of Fun with Barb!
I cracked up when I saw her version, it was too stinkin' cute!
You can "Peanutize" yourself HERE.
Happy Fall Ya'll!
I will keep you all updated on my move!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
