yikes!

Life has definately steered me away from sewing! I just completed a few bee blocks, but that's about it.

We've been anticipating for some time, and I can now announce it!

I'm moving back to my home province! We're heading back to Vancouver! Yippeeeee!!!

We've wanted this for quite some time, and have been patient to wait for the right opportunity, a paid move, etc and we just got the confirmation.

It's going to be a crazy few months, and I hope I can contribute at least something quilty to the blogging world. I'm working on my sketch of a wall quilt which is all solids, and totally difficult to plan the piecing, but I'm excited about it. Just not excited about the timelines in the next 2 months -
  • Our vacation to South Carolina for 3 weeks in July will NOT BE INTERRUPTED BY THIS MADNESS!!!
  • Sell our house and buy a new house hopefullly before school starts in September
  • Move before September.
Did I mention that house hunting for a new home is difficult as we are a province away? a 13 hour drive??? I think one of us will fly out and check some homes out on our own and then when we narrow it down, we'll all go. dh and I have very similar tastes and wants.

yikes!

Is it wrong that I'm already planning my road trips down to Seattle, Oregon Coast, and California???? I'm so excited for the prospects of things to do!!!!

And no more cold harsh winters!

But lots of soggy sappy rain. But then I can wear really cute fancy rain boots and find someone to make me one of those gorgeous raincoats that I see in the quilting world!

  13. The human foot is highly functional. It is important to find a shoe that understanding how the foot works. In my personal experience, one of them is the adidas shoes.Do you like athletic? Where you buy your athletic shoes? Do you know any shop offering aiddas outlet? Well, yesterday, I found one, very nice. You can have a try.
