The move and other news

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!

The basics: I love New England (my home), the outdoors, gardening, cooking, sewing, knitting, my kitties, my puppy, my partner in crime Alex and my sons Griffin & Orion, and my family and friends. I occasionally have time to share the things I love here. Enjoy!
