My June goal for OMG and the winner

of the Tammy Bag Sewing Kit is Bettina.
I have sent her an email.

A big

to everyone for all your sweet comments and entering my giveaway.
Life has been pretty hectic and I would like to say it will slow down
but I'm thinking it is going to be busy right through October.

I will be drawing another winner next Saturday June 11th.
for another Tammy Bag sewing kit.
If you commented on my blog in May your name is still in the 'bag'.
Comment before June 11th and you get your name in again. 

May was a very busy month, 
we sold our house
and then spent the next three weekends 
looking for a house to call home.
We looked at a lot of resale homes and finally decided we would have one built.
Our house in Michigan closes July 15 and
we will be heading 'home' to Canada.
The house will not be finished until the end of  September.
We will be living in the small town of Wellesley...population 11,000.
It's a rural area about a 15 minute drive to Waterloo.
It will be wonderful to finally be close to family.
I'm excited and would like to fast forward to October.
Lots to do before then...I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Our subdivision is having it's annual garage sale Friday and Saturday.
We will be participating for the first time...we have lots that we don't need or want...
...lots of sure is a lot of work!!
Trust me I would rather be sewing.

My time will be limited for sewing from now till we move.
but I am going to start stitching a chenille quilt with lacrosse fabric.
I'll be using orange, royal blue, lime green, and light blue flannel.
Novelty Cotton Fabric-Lacrosse
I'm still at the basting stage but hope to have the basting finished this weekend
and have the quilt stitched and bound by the end of June. 
This will be my June goal for OMG.

I'm joining the June Goal Setting party with
Heidi at Red Letter Quilts - OMG

Oh my! Moving is such a pain but exciting too. Good luck! The time will be here before you know it! Wish I was in the area to get some bargins!

Maureen said...

I wish I was moving north, it's way too ho and humid in Texas for this Wisconsin girl!

I am so excited for you. How wonderful that the house is sold. It is going to be crazy for the rest of the year, but you already know that.
I wish you all the very best for this busy time.
Congratulations and good luck!!!

What a busy, busy time for you. One of my son's and his family are looking to migrate to Canada and although I shall miss them terribly, there are opportunities for them which just aren't here in New Zealand. I hope you will be very happy returning 'home'.

Vicki H said...

Congrats on your being able to move back 'home'. I have been away from my MN home for so long that Kansas is now my home.

Enjoy the move my husband built our house 10 years ago. Lessons learned, build a laundry room with a place to fold clothes. The room you use the most should get the most attention in the planning so think about it. Windows that you can wash from the inside, no ladders to climb, I hated that and lots of light and fans, everywhere. Hardwood or tile is so much easier to clean then carpet in my book, you can always buy rugs to put down. Put in more plugs then you thought you would every need because you need them everywhere.

Congratulations on selling your home and the decision to build. I'm sure you'll have a great sewing space tucked in with inspirational views.

Have fun with the community garage sale may all your stuff find great new homes.

Love all your different colour and stitching design combos. I think the ones with embroidery are amongst my favourites.

Greetings and welcome back home from New Westminster B.C.!

Congratulations on selling your home, I would love to design a house for us with all the extras. That is very pretty fabric, I didn't notice the lacrosse sticks straight away.
