A lot has happened in the last few weeks. I found a small two bedroom / one bath house that I put an offer in on. My offer was accepted last week so now we start the process of packing and moving! It really is perfect for the corgis and I. Big fenced backyard with a screen room and a nice deck, lots of light, old oak trees on the property provide tons of shade and I can see the river from my Florida room. The home was owned by an artist so I already love all the touches she’s put on it.
I don’t have to do much to it for it to be ready to move in once we close at the end of October. My sewing room is on the front of the house and gets lots of nice light. The bedroom is on the back of the house. The living room is sunken and connects to the back screen room with nice french doors. Plenty of space for my grill and smoker.
I’ll get used to having a small sewing room. I do plan on keeping my vintage machines, Anne (the Powerquilter 16.0) and my main sewing machine the Pfaff Creative 2.0. The closets are good size so I should have plenty of room to store everything away especially if I get rid of a bunch of furniture and stuff I really don’t need.
My garage has turned into Yard Sale central! I’m moving all the stuff I want to sell and get rid of out of the house into the garage. Hoping to do my first yard sale in a few weeks.
I’m excited to have my first holidays in my new home! Even if I’m still getting ready to sell the old one it’ll be fun celebrating despite boxes probably still not being unpacked. I know things will work out fine. I feel confident and happy with this change. I’m very excited to make my first quilts in the little cottage. (I’m calling it little but it’s really a nice size – around 1200 sqf.).
