We recently made the decision to move back home to South Bend, IN. We are currently living in New Orleans and moved here after Katrina to help rebuild. But the time has come for us to return back to the midwest and cooler weather, to snowstorms instead of hurricanes.
After a very brief stint trying to sell our house for sale by owner, we talked to a real estate friend of my husband’s and determined that the most efficient way to sell our house here would be to list it with an agent. So we did…and within 48 hours we had 4 showings, 3 families in love with the house, 2 offers and ultimately a verbal agreement for the sale. Let’s just say that it has been a crazy weekend!
So we’ll be leaving the Crescent City and returning to the home of Notre Dame in 4(!) weeks. That’s just slightly overwhelming but exciting. I’m going to keep trying to sew as long as possible, but I can’t make huge guarantees at this point; especially as we near the move date. I’d like to get the quilt along going before I leave so you all don’t forget me when I inevitably will need to take some days off from sewing and blogging. It’s getting there…I promise. Sometimes I’m full of promises. 😉
I’m working on a handbag for a swap currently and will zip out my bee blocks soon so that I can move onto other things. I want to make sure I get to use the long arm quilting machine here for three or four quilts before I leave. I hope that’s not being too optimistic. 😉
