FINALLY!

YES! Finally, the house in Myrtle Beach is officially finished and completely ours! This journey has taken 22 months from contract to completion and has been fraught with so many frustrations but we’ve finally crossed the finish line! **cue huge sigh of relief**

The final hours of negotiation were so stressful and at times I thought we would have to get lawyers involved (*cue gagging) but eventually everyone acted like adults and we came to a settlement. We were so relieved to have it all behind us, we only captured these two pictures before leaving

We’ve already ordered the window blinds and if we’re lucky they’ll be ready for install when we go back down for Thanksgiving… I’ll be sure to capture room by room shots on that visit! The house is beautiful and we’re very happy with the results however, it’ll take some time for us to get over the bitterness of how long this process took…but we’ll get there.

We haven’t landed on an exact moving date yet – it will probably be some time in January.

Because of all that stress, I’ve spent very little time in my sewing room…which is the exact opposite of what I should be doing!! Sewing & quilting relaxes me so I really need to carve out more time for that!

I did get a few stitches accomplished this week, first I completed two charity blocks for Carol at From My Carolina Home I plan to make a few more and then send them to her to put into a quilt.

I also did a little work on a commission baby quilt for my husband’s cousin. She messaged me several weeks ago and wanted a gray owl quilt to give to her newest grand daughter for Christmas. I found this cute pink & gray owl fabric for the front and a gray dot flannel for the back. This is a whole cloth quilt so now that I have it basted I just need to get it quilted and bound.

That’s about all for now…if you don’t hear from me for a while just know that I’ll be packing & moving…UGH!

Have a great rest of your weekend 🙂
