Wrapping things up

We closed on our house in Chesapeake today!  Yeah!

The moving truck leaves here in just under two weeks!  Yikes.

The last week or two has had many farewell events!  It is so emotional to say goodbye to all the friends we have made over the last four years!

Several of the ladies from church and I went out to lunch recently,  look at the fun tote bag they had made for a farewell gift!

Also, several different quilt groups that I belong to made farewell quilt blocks as a gift.  My mind is already going, thinking about how to put them together!

In addition to all of the goodbyes in the last weeks, we’ve still been wrapped up in our dogs recovery!  She had x rays this week, and thankfully she is healing!

Sadly, I’ve only spent a few minutes in my sewing room this month…I did get a little handwork done.  These are two little wool banners from a seasonal collection.

The shop has a full collection of baby fabric and some coordinating flannel coming next week.

So, guess I’ll see you all in a couple of weeks!

Later, Sandra
