The joys of home ownership!

It's been weeks since I had my sewing machine out..sad, I know, but I bought a house two weeks ago and I have been consumed with unpacking, making trips to Target, Home Depot, etc.  Currently, I am waiting for a Plumber, bummer, I know!  I haven't had any hot water in my shower since I moved in...I have been showering at friend's, parent's, etc or filling a bucket with warm water and sponge bathing and washing my hair in the sink...TMI?  sorry.  My father, who is extremely handy and lives 40 miles south of me, made three trips to my home last week to try to fix it, but was unable.  So, I'm waiting for the Plumber to come and find the blockage in the hot water line and fix it (I have hot water everywhere but the shower)..argh!  In the meantime, here are a few pictures of my front porch...


  1. That is an adorable quilt you have there! Moving is a busy, busy time! We bough tour house a couple years ago and it was kind of a disaster for months!

    1. That was the first quilt I ever made...I didn't know the first thing about sewing or quilting. I went to Joann and bought a TON of fabric...I did it strip quilt method..none of it lined up. I think I got bored with it and threw it in a box and forgot about it. A few years ago, I open a box from my Mom at Christmas and there was the quilt, Finished! She has a friend who's an amazing quilter and she took my quilt top and FMQ an adorable flower pattern on it! It was a great suprise and now I love the quilt!

  2. congrats on your new home! I bought my first two years ago, and it's so much fun to have a place of my own. too bad about the plumbing, but hopefully you get those kinks worked out!
