Here are some photos of our basement (exciting NOT, I know, but bear with me please!) See my nice big 4' by 4' egress windows. That's my quilt studio in its infancy.
Here they are from the outside. (OK, so they are really only holes in the wall at this stage, but they will have big beautiful windows in them soon!) And I'll be inside quilting!
Here are 2 of the cement crew thru my studio window. The one squatting gave me grief for taking his picture. I told him that anyone wearing a 4" long BRAIDED goutee had to expect to have his picture taken.
Back in November when we bought the lot, I told people we'd be sitting on our front porch watching the fireworks this year. Randy couldn't believe I insisted on driving 50 miles to sit in lawn chairs on a pile of dirt next to the basement to watch fireworks. I told him it would be a good memory someday! The bugs only ate us a little. :)
She is a longarm quilter...
I had a beautiful guest suite all to myself...
Their children are all grown and have families....except for Lucy...
I stopped at the quilt shop in Montezuma before I left town. I'm so glad I did. The ladies there are so friendly and their shop is large and well-stocked. I should have taken pictures. :( I'm happy to say that they are now selling my Orphans of War patterns at Three Sisters. Stop in and check out their shop!
I'm making 2-3 trips to Mt. Pleasant every week to be involved with the house building and run errands. I still have a lot of time on my hands. I've been doing some painting at Mom's to get her house ready to sell. It's not easy for her to leave her home, church, family & friends, but I think she'll be happy with us. She'll make new friends, have a new room to decorate, a new church family, and of course, Randy and me to put up with! she'll be fine.
Still not sewing or quilting, but busy and making progress! Keep stitching!
