We're Moving...

We finally closed on a new house!  I haven't been posting because I haven't been sewing.  I posted about a house where I was going to have a sewing room on the main floor with big windows, but that fixer upper deal fell through. :-(

BUT, we found an even BIGGER house and with a little wheeling and dealing we were able to buy a 2 year old home with more space than the fixer upper we were looking at (and more than twice the space we currently have!) and our monthly payment went up only $110!!

I am SO excited to get moved in... Oh, and while I won't be getting a main floor 11x12 foot sewing room with big windows, I will be getting a 14x16 foot mancave (also known as a sewing room) in the basement!  The basement is unfinished, so initially my mancave will have only two concrete walls, but it'll be mine!  I can leave Betsy and the Queen out all the time.  The Treadle will have a home and the Red Eye can come out of her table and see the light, and my unnamed Featherweight (Yup... I got one!) will be able to be on display and used as well.  And of course Leonidas, who is still naked with parts in boxes will be out where I can see him again.  It'll probably be Christmas break before I can really work on him again, but I'll finish him before 2013...

I have also been VERY busy with school.  For those who may have missed it, I have gone back to school to get my Masters of Divinity, and I'll earn a Masters of Ministry along the way!  This has been a complete exercise of faith for me, and if you'd like to know more, click on the bible on the right side of the page near the top to read my other blog.  (You could follow it too if you'd like to see all of my updates on that front.)

Pictures of the new house and mancave will come soon.  First we are going to clean the carpet, and finish painting a room, and then we'll move in!

Exciting Times!!

Until Next Time,

  4. Cool! Getting a deal for the perfect house is practically like trying to punch the moon – it’s practically impossible! But I’m glad you found one which is almost perfect for your needs. Almost like living in a house you did build, right? First thing you should do after things get settled is figure out where the local grocery is. :D That way, when you do fall short on supplies, you know exactly where to go.

  5. You explanation is excellent and clear. I was impressed with this post and am looking forward to reading more from you.
