We had a pretty crazy storm come through on June 29th and nearly all of West Virginia was affected by it as well as many other states. We only had our power restored Thursday. It was a crazy, HOT 2 weeks. I did manage to FINALLY get my hand pieced quilt top sashed and the borders put on. This picture was taken before we had electric so the quilt top is not pressed. I'll be doing that today. My next post will be about hand quilting and finishing up with the hand pieced quilt along! If you've been waiting, thanks for your patience. I feel so behind. I have bee blocks to make and my Google reader says 1000+. It has been a nice break but I am so ready to get back into quilting and blogging. I am also really excited to meet with some of the girls from the West Virginia Modern Quilt Guild.
It has been really nice being in our own place. We bought a mobile home to put on our property and we hope to be building a log cabin in the future. I am so proud of my husband. He did all of the electrical, plumbing, phone hook-ups himself. He saved us a lot of money in labor. Our family has helped us beyond words. It's taking some adjusting going from about 2500 square feet house to just shy of 1000 square feet. But I purged a lot of junk and things we didn't need. It's nice to have a cute little uncluttered home. I hope by spring we will have our chickens and maybe even our dairy goats.
We did get this cute little guy from our neighbor. He was bound for the pound and we wanted a dog so it worked out great! He is so cute and the kids love him. Especially my son. He has always wanted his own dog and now he has one. His name is Rosco.
Thank you if you read this long winded post. I was planning on writing about our adventures in our new place but after the 2 week power outage I am just ready to veg out in front of the fan :) Nature and adventures will have to wait! Can't wait to see what you all have been up to! Going to TRY to blog hop now :)!!!!
