First of all, thank you all so much for the quilt love. After such a frustrating experience it was nice to get your positive and encouraging comments. I was able to deliver the quilt in person and the recipient loved it, so that was a huge relief in the end.
The last time I published a post was the first day our house went on the market. I am happy to report that three days later it sold! Pretty much what every seller hopes for. Mr. Crafty World and I spent last week looking for a new home in our new town. It was a little on the stressful side as most of what we wanted to see sold just a few days before we got there. We finally did find a lovely home in a smaller town that we are both pretty happy about. We will be in our current location for another five weeks and then we're off to start our new adventure. One thing I am super happy about: I will have a room above grade for sewing and crafting!
I did fit a bit of stitching in with all the craziness going on in May. I completed two more blocks in my Stitcher's Alphabet: 'L' is for Lace and 'M' is for Measure. Don't you just love that cute little mouse?
I am now officially half way done!
One of my larger works in progress is 'VintageChristmas' by Country Cottage Needleworks. I started it before Christmas last year, but with the holiday hoop-la I didn't finish. Why I thought I could I have no idea! I put in a few more stitches before we went away and I think I am almost half way done at this point:
The day after we sold our house I spent the entire day sewing up a new cushion cover. This is a pattern from Bustle and Sew - I think 2012 sometime. I still need to work on my free motion machine embroidery: I think perhaps using a hoop might be helpful. Any advice?
And there you have it, all the news from the magical month of May. Thank you all so much for visiting and your kind words. I am hoping to catch up on all my blog reading today.
Until next time,
