Hi there!

I am just finishing unpacking after moving from our house of fifteen years to a small apartment fifteen miles away. What a change. The sewing and quilting is what will keep me somewhat happy and having a new addition to our family, Woody! Gary and I took him in, he is a year old. He will be my quilting buddy. Yvonne is and has been very kind to me, giving me her sewing and quilting things that she didn't need since she got her new $5,000 quilting machine named Fiona! So I can now quilt better and enjoy it more! She is giving me her stitch regulator, what a friend! I am so fortunate! It is still going to be a while before I can work on projects without feeling cramped in here. I am only able to work a couple hours before I get exhausted and have to rest. I try my best and do what I can. But knowing it is there if I want to sit and dream about it is all worth it.
My mom gave me her car also which I am very thankful. I can go back to my hometown and see her when I can drive and am up to it too. It is very appreciative. Gary and I are very lucky. Every day I thank them in my prayers and pray that they have a good day and are happy.
Pray for our troops please. All the best, Erin and Woody.

Quilting Journey said...

It must be very challenging to move to a smaller place, but you are blessed to have a good husband, an adorable quilting cat and a wonderful attitude! I hope that some quilting therapy will continue to make the move easier...especially if Woody continues to help with the binding ;) And, if Woody's portrait is any indication, he is one very adorable kitty! By the way, I saw the Dick and Jane made me want to go to school again, just to have one to pack a lunch in...darling!
