DH has accepted an offer to work in Columbus, Ohio. What will I miss most?? This:
Yes, I have to leave this beautiful room. I’ll probably never have another one like it. When we were originally transferred to Michigan, I told DH I’d only go if I could have the sewing room of my dreams. I designed it, and it was custom-built, with lots of storage nooks and crannies (to hide my fabric, of course!).
I will certainly miss it, but we’re excited to finally be going home to Columbus. I’d trade a sewing room to be closer to family – any time. I hope a wonderful quilter (or sewer) buys this house and enjoys and appreciates it as much as I have! I’ve created a ton of wonderful quilts in this room. Delightful memories.
I just finished quilting my last quilt here in Michigan. It’s a memory quilt for my nephew and his wife, who are having a little girl in July. It’s made from DH’s brother’s golf shirts. His brother passed away last year 🙁 This quilt will be his way of hugging his granddaughter from heaven.
I used the Candy Hearts Quilt pattern from Moda Bake Shop. It was one of the quickest quilts I’ve ever put together!
We’re getting ready to disassemble the frame now, as the house will go on the market next week. I will miss my blinged-out baby for a few months while we are in transit from one house to another.
You can bet it will be one of the first things set up again! The decals on Shirley (yes, my Voyager is named Shirley, after my mom, who taught me everything I know about sewing!) are from QuiltaStick. I picked them up when Peggi & I visited the Houston International Quilt Festival last year. How much fun are those????
So, now I’m off to clean the house from top to bottom. The realtor comes tomorrow. Thank goodness I did a thorough cleaning-out of this house last summer – at least I don’t have to deal with getting rid of stuff we don’t need now!
My next post, I’m sure, will be from Ohio. Keeping our fingers crossed for a smooth move!
