Moving Excitement!

As I think I mentioned before, at some point we are moving.  We’re doing all sorts of decluttering and packing up right now to get our house ready to go on the market, and we’re hunting down houses like crazy.  This is nothing new to us; we’ve lived in 3 states and countless apartments, and now our house, in our 8 years together.  We know how to move.

However, this time feels different.  I am excited about the prospect of buying what could possibly be our last home.  I’m excited about taking another step up in our lives, setting up our house with more than 1,000 square feet to work with, not being on top of our neighbors, having a place for little baby Dax when he (or she! who knows!) decides to come along in the future.  If I’m just being completely honest here, I’m probably most excited about setting up my sewing room.

My sewing room now is our spare bedroom.  There is a full sized bed in there and a dresser, which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but they are the bane of my existence.  Sure, the bed is great for taking a break from sewing and perusing through Pinterest or checking Twitter (which I’m terrible at doing, by the way.  #1 worst tweeter, right here.  I mostly just retweet.)  Besides that, my sewing room doesn’t have a ceiling light, and there isn’t much in the way of natural light except during a few hours in the morning.  I have a lot of lamps, which actually make it hard to tell what time it is, and then you end up staying up until 11pm on a Wednesday working on a bag, and then you’re so wired when it’s done you decide it’s a good idea to watch an episode of Dexter.  Sure you finished it, and Dexter is never a bad idea, but all Thursday you’re barely awake.  I haven’t even gotten to the best part; the whole room is yellow.  I mean, Big bird would be invisible in this room.  YELLOW.  When we moved in the entire house was yellow, and when were painting and got to that room we just said “let’s leave it that way just as a reminder.”  So low light + yellow walls = everything in there looks odd and I have to find another room to take pictures of things.  Even with my little lightbox things have a yellow tinge.


So I’ve been working on some sketches of how I want my sewing room laid out.  I know once I get in there it’ll change about 100 times and I’ll keep moving things around, but I want to get an idea of how I’d like to imagine it anyhow.  It’s a little difficult since we haven’t really found “the one” house and I can’t be 100% about dimensions, doors, windows, etc.


Anyhow!  I hope everyone’s had a nice week!  I know I’m looking forward to the weekend!

Until next time!  Happy sewing!


Alright!  Things have slowly been making progress over here!

I went back to the doctor on Tuesday and got the all clear, and she told me that my “spacey feeling” will go away soon, and it’s just a side effect of having a fever for four days.  I can understand that. 😀  What I’d like anyone to take away from this is that if you get a tick bite and it grows larger than what looks normal for a bug bite on you, go to the doctor ASAP.

My middle sister moved back home from Hawaii today!!!  -Okay, some people think it’s weird that I say middle sister.  What else am I supposed to say?  She’s not my eldest sister, she’s in the middle!-  I can’t wait to see her and my little niece and nephew the next time I get down there.  It’s hard watching family babies growing up through facebook.

So!  I have been doing some sewing.  I’m literally 3-4 steps away from finishing my sister’s quilted bag.  It’s going to be so cute!  I have got to get this finished by Saturday so I can take it to my guild meeting for show and tell!!!!!  I LOVE SHOW AND TELL!!! 😀  I’ve been sending my sister sneak peek pictures so that she can see, and the responses have typically been “OMG IT’S BEES!!!!” or “squee!!!!” so that’s good. 🙂  I also have a bag that I need to have finished and ready to go by next Friday (holy crap!), so I’m about to get really busy making up for lost time!  I also really need to get some new things in my shop soon.  I got all that cute pink fabric and I have barely done anything with it so far.





Can we talk about this weather?  Just for a minute?  I have two fans going in my office to keep it cool, because our building is really old and the a/c just isn’t what it used to be.  Also, we got an email that asked us to keep our blinds at a 45 degree angle or less to keep the sunlight out…yea this is just completely silly and I can’t make this up.  (How am I supposed to see birds doing stupid bird things outside?)  So the past two days I’ve worn a skirt to work.

“It’s too hot for pants!!!”

My husband loves this.  He thinks I need to wear more girly things and just be more girly.  I think I’m plenty girly, but whatevs.  It just has been too hot for pants.  He also knows my disdain for shorts, (BECAUSE THEY’RE THE WORST!) so he’s just over the moon over there, while I’m just trying to deal with the heat.  Don’t get me wrong, I love warm weather, but, hey, this isn’t supposed to be here for like, 2-3 weeks.  Maybe I can use this heat to my advantage, and have an excuse to sew myself a new cute skirt? 😀

I hope everyone’s had a much better few weeks than I have!  Not boiling up with fever or with heat wave.

Until next time, happy sewing!!

Sick :(

So I have done zero sewing.  I’ve been pretty sick; I had a fever for 4 days.  Lucky for me it seems I’m out of the worst of everything.  Just pretty tired now.  Yesterday was my first full day back at work so, as you can imagine, I was pretty tired once I got home.  Anyhow, I do plan on doing some sewing once I get home today, so hopefully I will have something to blog about by Thursday. 🙂


Happy sewing everyone!
