Dear Friends....

Oh me, oh my, what's a gal to do? It seems that this past week I have had no time to sew. My unfinished projects are calling to me.....
The good news is this (and the news is mixed)...we have sold our house. You might remember we are building a log home on our farm for a permanent full time relocation to the country. The log home is coming along nicely, but will not be ready until August or September. So now for the bad news....we will be settling our house in April, leaving us no home for about 5 months.
Needless to say, I have been packing, packing, packing in preparation. We will have to store all of our belongings until the log home is finished....and live in our little 20 X 20 A-frame guest cottage for the Spring and Summer (with no room for sewing!)
I will be finishing up the Raggedy Ann and Andy quilt and also my Pine Tree Poem Quilt and then packing up the sewing room. This makes me so very sad.

At some point I will say "See You in September" and take a break from Sew on and Sew Fourth. I will, however, continue to write my farm blog....as there will be so much more to tell once I am living full time on the farm.

Nooooooooooooooo! say it ain't so(sew)......lol!
Just think come September, when your home is all settled in you'll be able to sew like a mad woman on a mission....after all the Holidays will only be around the corner!...no pressure, no stress! hahaha!

Well, knowing you my dear, you will be able to handle it! You are one trooper! Looking forward to seeing you on your farm blog and can't wait to see Sew on & Sew Forth active once again! Thanks for the Blue towels and sweet note! So excited to use them. I am paper towel FREE! Talk soon my friend! Hugs, Maryjane

It'll be great to open all your sewing stuff up after getting moved in!!! It will be like Christmas-in September!!!!!

Your mind likely needs the fresh start anyway-creativity drains us-and you have LOTS of creativity!!!!!
Enjoy the season of rest- and then jump back in and wow us all again!!!!

Oh wow! Sounds like alot of work, the packing that is. As far as not being able to sew for awhile maybe it will give you a time to rest and contemplate new ideas! I better save your other blog in my favs so I wont miss anything! Hope you have a great Thursday! Blessings, Karen

Look on the bright side. At least you won't be making the dreaded double mortgage payments!

Congrats on the sale! Quite an achievement where I come from!

Keep your sewing basket with you so you can make yo-yo's or do hand embroidery..that doesn't take up much space and will give you pleasure while you dream of your future sewing room all setup and ready to go. :0)

You have been blessed with the timely selling of the house. The time you spend in the A-frame will be a memory you will hold forever and I'm sure you'll laugh and cry..LOL

Hugs to you Bev,
