surprise finish...

the little wallhanging found in a box used as packing material is now done, washed and ready to hang on my apartment door....


colors are a bit brighter than actual due to sunlight pouring in but it's a keeper for now...has to be 3-4 years old anyway due to fabrics....so that's 2 projects this month that are finished and with the moving van coming within the week, all my UFOs will be in plain sight to nudge me on to more finishes...not much doing until then.  another gorgeous day for finding my way around and picking up few foodstuffs.  went in to my new bank and the woman told me about a terrific greek restaurant close by....mmmm greek salad, i am ready for that!   still flying high on having an apartment with my own bathroom, kitchen and sewing studio.  have diagram all ready for when stuff arrives so can get up to speed on sew alongs ASAP....wishing you all the very best day!

getting settled...sort of....

my cable isn't in yet so posting from a public computer aka nothing here to upload, just a brief update.  been exploring some and made only a few wrong turns so far.  have found important places like grocery store, library, chick-fil-a, walmart, gas stations, etc....just past day or so have gotten down to sewing on the surprise wallhanging used as packing material in a box.  glad to say it is ready to bind and will be a march finish, yay!  movers coming in about a week so remainder of unpacking is on hold until then.  have managed to apply for a few jobs as imperative to find work of some sort to support my quilty habits and pay student loans.  and the complex?  very lovely, lots of friendly people, lots of amenities and comforts.  feels strange having my own little kitchen again!  coming here from gray  New England was like stepping into Oz...everything in living color and lots of green!  hoping to have pictures next post.  have contacted a couple of guilds and planning visits soon, and quilting at the senior center is Thursday, so lots of opportunities to sew!  and even tho I live in senior housing, didn't feel "senior" until today when reading that Patty Duke had died...oh my....until next time!
