Changes, changes. . .

It has been a crazy, eventful week and a half since I last posted. I haven't been near my sewing machines since I finished the Valentine cards. I have been cleaning like a crazy woman, and painting the red wall in our master bedroom boring beige, like the other three walls. We've decided to take advantage of the strong real estate market here, and put our house up for sale. With Shannon moving to Florida in a few months to live with her brother and sister-in-law, it just seemed like the right time to downsize. And, unlike our last home, I do NOT expect this one to take nine months to sell.

We have some decisions to make over the next few months. Maybe we will end up buying a smaller home here, maybe not. I am at peace, despite the fact I honestly don't know where or what I'll be doing in a year. We will likely be renting for at least a few months, and I'll need to have at least some space for creating- I'm in the Journal Quilt project for the last time, and I know being able to make fiber art is the one sure way for me to maintain my sanity in the midst of chaos. I'm even thinking of investigating outside studio space- although, I'll be first to admit I haven't a clue where to start with that one.

I am two thirds through my weekly drawing class. It is going better- I now know I can recreate something with a grid, and found a wonderful tool for pencil drawing- a simple little paper blender. Works great! Hopefully I will get a drawing done this week I can post.

Our first prospective buyers will be here to look at the house tomorrow afternoon. I'm off to shovel yellow snow in the backyard. Having two dogs with a very small yard does have its downside!

Good luck with it all.
