It's been awhile

But for good reason - my hubby got a new job!  So we are finally all living together in our new house!!!!  Can you tell I'm happy?!?!?!  No more driving to see each other on the weekends, just being together every day. 

We've been working on settling into a routine and doing some spring maintenance around the house (read: lots of mulching and starting the veggie garden), so there hasn't been much in the way of progress on the house (just the opposite - boxes everywhere now).  I have been sewing, just not quite as much as I had been. 

The Farmer's Wife quilt is coming along.  Here is the latest . . .
Just 10 more blocks from the book and 16 extras to complete the top!  

When I get annoyed with the blocks, I piece together parts of rows.  So far, I've pieced together the top left corner - 4 rows!  It makes me happy to see the top growing after piecing blocks almost every day since the beginning of January.
It's such a pain to keep things lined up on the design wall, especially with the sewing table butted up against it.  I have to finish some other projects first, but I am working on plans for the sewing room and will hopefully be working on it sometime this year.

Here are some glimpses of the mess - I spared you the boxes and scariness.  My sewing area all set up and surrounded by Farmer's Wife paraphernalia . . .

 I'm hoping to get back into a more regular posting schedule over the next bit - even if it's just once a week.  And I'm going to try and start putting together some before and afters progress pictures of our house, if for no other reason than to keep me from sinking into the depths of renovation despair.

  1. Your quilt is looking terrific! Great idea to sash your blocks as you go - one of my favorite methods of assembly.
    Wishing you many years of happiness in your new home! All those home improvements will become little "memory makers" for you & your family. It will all come together for you in time - be sure to enjoy the hugs & laughter in between.
