Feels like ...

.... home!  Slowly, but surely, our new place is feeling like home.

Hello wall quilt!  We haven't seen you since February.

Hello quilt ladder!  You were so crowded at our old place, but now you have lots of room to show off your quilts.

Together, you make a fine pair!
The hectic days of deadlines, the rush to get things done is almost over.  Most of the rooms are finished and it feels so good to just sit back and relax and do a bit of handwork. 
The painting and cosmetic work will follow at some point but we are comfortable in our new home as it is right now and love it here very much.  Curtains need to be put up and chairs to be re-upholstered, etc.   The work can be done later ..... right now, we just need to chill out.  The last 3 months have been very stressful to our body and soul.

My studio is almost unpacked and it has been a joy to discover my old tops and projects as each box and bin gets opened and put away.  My sewing machine has been found and it will get set-up one day.  Hand piecing projects are a blessing to have around for me to work on in the meantime.

Have a great day, eh!

Your klojes quilt looks spectacular! Having moved several times,I know the importance of getting to the point of some kind of normal is important. You have a great attitude about not trying to do it alol right now, but to take time to do the things you enjoy!

Oh, I envy you that wall space. It looks like a designer house. I'm glad you are feeling setted enough to sit back and enjoy it.

It just looks absolutely beautiful! Can I come and visit? Your hexagons have me fascinated. Is that a pattern you came up with? Its just beautiful. Everytime I come to your blog I get all inspired and want to try something you are doing.
