Today I happily join in at Kathy’s Slow Stitching HERE for the first time in over a month y’all! We have been moving from east Florida north to southwest North Carolina USA. If you wanna see about that check out my post from last week… this week I want to share my hand quilting !!!
Okay so this may not look like much but I haven’t seen this quilt in 1 month since I had to pack it all up!!!
So this is how our living room space started… all pics show very few boxes but THEY ARE THERE!!! lol
I did also take advantage of Craftsy Unlimited for me to enjoy and my honey too as they offer wood working and wood TURNING classes!!!
Here is my current Facebook profile pic too!!!
See the water gristmill out the window as we enjoy the gas logs keeping us warm?? LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!
Daisy was glad to get back to her place next to her daddy in their chair!!!
And this Bonnie-ism helped me really refocus…
But it made me wonder if my honey was watching what I posted as the next morning I woke to a Christmas morning event!!
While I was sleeping from total exhaustion of continual unpacking… he stayed up and made our living room into a functional space!!!
I love how he moved my quilt frame over to the windows for a great view of our pond!!
And the TV with our picture and special blankets on the quilt holder… and our Singer trash can… all put together…
I was happy that the sellers of this place left the valances here…
And my makeshift desk….
I enjoy sitting in this rocking chair… I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lumbar pillow too!
Now to just ALLOW myself time to quilt over finishing unpacking!!!
Before I close I do wanna show what we saw for the first time in 6 years too…
Thanks for the photo tour. Your new home looks wonderful and what a pretty, cozy place to quilt. I think it is great that your quilt frame has a view to the outdoors.
What a nice long newsy post! Glad that you are settled in a bit and can enjoy your quilting again 🙂
I love that Rick put your quilting frame in front of the window I wish I could put mine in an area like that – you will so love being able to glance up and look outside – especially if it happens to be snowing 🙂 everything looks so nice and you will now find less and less boxes to unpack and see everything going in its place and be happy with it. Your quilting is so nice and such tiny stitches glad you were able to get that going again and so glad you are enjoying your craftsy subscription – thank you for ordering through my links!
You are settling in quite well and quickly with both of you working hard. IMHO it is easier to pack than unpack. Packing involves putting stuff in boxes. Unpacking entails finding a place to put the stuff in unfamiliar surroundings. The valances add a homey touch and such a nice view from the windows. Daisy is all settled and how nice for you to be able to take a few stitches.
Enjoy your quilting, you have such a lovely view as you quilt. Do you see deer?
I'm totally impressed that you have a quilt set up already! I'm glad you enjoyed your first snow in NC, but please tell mother nature she can bring on some real spring time weather now!! 😉
