Some "scenery" is a little tacky:
We've had some visitors in our backyard:
I have already setup my sewing room and I honestly feel like I need to pinch myself because I can hardly believe it's real. I should have taken a picture at my previous setup in Massachusetts but I was literally sewing in our kitchen and placing a small ironing board on top of the high chair tray.
My design wall is on the right side of the room:
Towards the front of the room is an ironing station and there is a roomy closet next to the sewing desk that I have filled with fabric. Does all of my fabric fit in there? I plead the fifth.
I have plans for decorating my sewing room, so you will hear more about this in the future.
In Billerica, I was literally within a .5 mile of a Joann's store. Here in Colorado Springs, there is only one giant Joann's and I am a five minute drive from it. SCORE!
I have already attended a Front Range Modern Guild meeting. I was surprised at myself for how nervous I felt attending but it wasn't so bad. I found the group to be very warm and welcoming. Here is a picture of Stephanie R. showing a quilt she made, an original design. She's from Lowell, MA :)
I was SO nervous about this cross-country move and really wondered if we were making the right decision. The "problem" with my husband is that he's so dang happy wherever he is and with whatever he's doing that we've loved wherever we've been together and made the best of every situation- he's the poster child for the saying, "Bloom where you're planted." So even though we had some struggles in Massachusetts, I was very happy there. But through this whole process, I have drawn comfort by knowing that even though a lot of things would change with the move, a lot of things were going to stay the same. My faith and family are constant. I am so happy to share this adventure with these little buggers:
and this guy:
Thanks for reading this mostly non-sewing related post. I will be back soon with two completed quilts to share.
