I haven't posted this week as I've been too busy with everything but sewing. My life has changed again this week. My son and his little family moved out. They found a place of their own. They are not too far from me so it won't be too bad. I'll still get to see the baby and keep her on Saturdays, but wow, what a change. Last night was the first night we've been home early and there was no noise...The house will feel empty for awhile. I am excited for them to be starting out in life on their own but I sure will miss them....Life is full of changes and I know this will be good for them and also good for me and my husband. This will be the first time in over 29 years that we'll have the house back to ourselves! I'll be what everyone calls an "empty-nester".
I have gotten all my dies in that I ordered and have been looking and dreaming about them. I want to start projects with those soon but not this week.
I already have plans to move some of my sewing stuff into their empty room and I'll finally be able to have a design wall! I'm going to keep most of my stuff upstairs and just have my current project of projects I'm working on and sewing machine in the room. I don't plan on taking up two rooms of my house for sewing (LOL) but I very easily could! I'm thinking about painting the room first but I don't know yet. I'll clean it up real good first and then decide...
I was going to the Dallas Quilt show today but I took off half a day yesterday and went instead. I met some of my buddies and walked around with them and oohed and ahhed at all the beautiful quilts. It's a great show and lots of ideas. My buddies and I decided to have an exchange from looking at one of the quilts! I took lots of pictures and I'll post some of those later this weekend. For now, I have to get off of this thing and get busy. I'm all by myself today and want to get some things done. Til next time, happy sewing!
