We are slowly, but surely, getting things moved from one house to the other. It is so different this time around, easier in some ways, but tiring all the same.
Because we want to leave as much furniture here as possible to show this house, we are basically moving all the non-essentials first. That means the cupboards are empty, but the open shelves are normal. Some rooms, have larger pieces of furniture, while we take the smaller things like some tables and some chairs, and leaving others.
We've had a couple of really good showings, too! The most recent is a family who is in love with the house, and really want it. Yesterday they spent a long time here (while we were moving books to the new house) with 10 of their family members and our realtor. They want to make an offer, but they have to wait until they get an appraisal on their home. We're not sure about taking a contingency at this point, and they know that, so I'll be interested to see what comes in.
At any rate, I am getting a little sewing done every time we go to the new house. Pictures in the next post. And I promise! I WILL TRY TO POST MORE OFTEN!
In the meantime, here are a few more pictures from the Minnesota show. I like the combination of this border treatment a lot!
A cat quilt for Amy (who needs some patience and a round tuit)!
There's hidden kitties in the other blocks, too!
And I took a picture of this one to remind me that this would be a good way to use some of my Asian fabrics, without having to cut into them so much. I think it's a Maple Island pattern that is somewhere in my stash!
