Our House is Up For Sale

Sorry I have'nt posted for a while but this time of year is quite busy for me and has been made busier because of getting the house ready for sale and keeping it that way in case someone wants to look around. We have'nt found anywhere that we want to move to yet as things seem very quiet over here in the housing market but we are not in a desperate hurry.

Kate and Steve came for dinner yesterday, they are looking well and happy and it is always lovely to catch up with all their news and I love to cuddle my girl too.

The weather here has turned quite cold and very windy, not pleasant!Kathleen and I have been busy cutting up shirts for some quilts we have quite a lot they are all 100% cotton and we bought them from charity shops there are some lovely colours and we will mix in some floral fabrics to give them a zing, we spend many happy hours in Kathleens garage cutting, ironing (Kathleens ironing board in the garage has a wonky leg which kept attacking me) we went to buy a new board and things are easier now, we have a line strung across the garage with loads of these strips in all colours we will show you the quilts when they are done.

I am going to do some sewing now I have lots to do, speak to you soon.

Hoping the sale works out well - and soon. Both my bro and B-I-L have just managed, in the past month, to buy & sell in a fairly short space of time, so I think things are picking up a little!

I do not envy you being 'viewer ready' all the time though - it must get in the way of sewing afternoons!

Hello! Our home was for sale for one year so I know how stressful it can be to keep everything just so in case someone wants to visit.
What a grand idea to buy up skirts and use the pretty cottons for quilts.
Wishing you all the best, Mildred

Hope the sale of your home goes well. We recently sold ours and move out on Tues. morning. It's a stressful time selling a home. Will you still live close to Kathleen? Hugs

I hope you get a quick sale, Bluebell. It seems that property moves very slowly now.
