Almost Time

You know you are getting ready to move when this is the only decorated space left in your whole downstairs! I left these things just for a little spark of "happy" as I pack things away.

I finished up my little Charisma quilt on Thursday. It was a fun little quilt to make. I did all over stippling and bound it with a pieced binding (a combination of two fabrics from the Charisma line). I hadn't planned on piecing it, but they didn't give me enough of the stripe fabric in the kit. It is such a busy, scrappy quilt that I think the pieced binding worked well. I love this quilt. I had not prewashed anything since it was made with charm squares. I washed the whole finished quilt and I LOVE the way it came out. What fun!

It is hard to believe the time to move is just about here. We have been packing and working hard. Lots of boxes are everywhere. My walls and shelves and closets and cabinets and niches are bare, which just looks weird to me. It is an odd feeling to be boxing up your life, but I know it will be "unboxed" soon.

Today Brian is even dismantling the playset - what a job! Hey but we found an extra identical slide on the neighbor's curb. Now when we rebuild, we can have double racing slides!

Hi Celeste!
I love your quilt!
I am just checking in after a LONG time away (hurricane, kids, etc.)... Congratulations on your move! Hopefully you will be somewhat close by! If so, I'd love to get together sometime (after everything settles down after the move, of course!). I will be praying that everything goes smoothly! God Bless!
