STILL MOVING...


Boy, this move is taking more time than I thought it would and more out of me physically. Of course, hurting my left arm in the process has slowed things down. I have two more trips this week and then I will be completely out of my apartment.

Next big thing is to try and organize everything in the new place. And, another son will be joining us and I will begin moving him in October!!!

Anyway, I thought I would check in and let folks know that I am still alive and fairly well and will be back within a week...I hope.

The leaves are just beginning to change and I hope it will be a spectacular fall with a riot of color. By the way, the house we are renting is very old...built in the 1700's so there are lots of nooks and crannies and a place for each of us.  My studio is twice the size of my last place. Can't wait to share everything with you. But only after I have it somewhat organized...

Thanks for visiting...

SHORT POST TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING...


Yes, it has been a bit of time since I last posted. Up and down time!  I sat down and went through all the negotiations for the beautiful large house and then I went to visit the house one more time to make sure I remembered things...I did. 

Two things posed some problems, not on my side. First, when I went back to the house after negotiations, the owner had let the dog have the run of the house and it basically pooped and peed in the bedrooms. Second,  someone in the owner's family had a lot of furniture in the house and was being difficult in moving the furniture out.

So, the next day my realtor called and said the owner had backed out of the deal and with no lease signed, I had no recourse. Back to the drawing board...

I found another home much closer to the Hudson in the town of Cornwall. I met with the owner and  liked him and he liked me including my pets.  So, I am signing the lease on Wednesday.

I have been packing like crazy. Right now SnowWhite's bed is crammed full and tomorrow, I will have the cab filled leaving enough room for the cats.

Life goes on...crazily at the moment...
I will try to post a couple times this week...
Thanks for stopping by and checking things out here...

A BIT OF LUCK HAPPENING...


Well, I think I can look positively now at the house. It looks like I should be able to sign the lease next Monday or Tuesday!  Wow! A house I love is actually going to be a rental reality.  I have to say that I didn't think it would happen. 

Here are a few more of my challenges.  Tags first and 363 something second...


As for the fall scene, I really did not like the free motion hand stitches so I took them all out. I decided to embroider a leafless tree.  Here's a basic outline...
..I like this a lot better.

Well, back to packing. Like I said, my days are packing and errands, then a little creativity right before bed.

Can't wait to share pictures of the home with you. It is really beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by...
Talk with you tomorrow...
