Sure enough, a couple of days after getting a new start at this blog, and deciding to quit my job after over 9 years – we had a major mishap at the house, which – long story short, led to us moving out of our house (a nearly 20 room house) for the summer. Major water damage during a renovation project was the cause. For the last 2 weeks I’ve been on overdrive, singlehandedly managing to find 5 month old baby, dog, and family a new home (if you want the full story, call me). And finally we are settled into a furnished condo on the other side of the river from our home. We are calling it our summer house. It’s pretty darn nice, I have to say. And I had to move my studio, in the midst of trying to prep all my inventory for my first Farmer’s Market date at the end of June. Just a wee bit of stress… ! But – my ‘new’ studio overlooks the river, and has a deck, a bathroom and a bed, in case I need a nap during my stressful sewing days. Ha! At least I’m back up and running, working on production for my much anticipated debut. I must say I’m a bit nervous – about whether I’m making the right product, whether my sewing is a standard worthy of sale… the list could go on and on – but I’ll spare you.
Here’s a little glimpse into what I’ve been up to, in all the chaos.
Here’s our new view (yes, that’s our deck):
Here’s the view of our poor house:
Here’s my ‘new’ temporary studio:
And if you want these quilts, come to the Newburyport Farmer’s Market on June 24th:
Oh, and of course – baby Finn – he sits up all on his own now (at least for a few minutes here and there). Absolutely LOVE him. He’s also my product tester, tried and true!
Ok, folks – more to come, LOTS of new creations and patterns to share. Time to sign off for tonight. Have a great week!
