From February ’till June our lives have been turned upside down.
The studio has come to a complete halt,
I missed the annual June studio tour and our house is now in chaos
due to our house sale that did not go through.
I need another day of grace like I had back in February but it may be a long time coming.
The studio also came to a halt due to the fact that we are now working on our house again.
New wood flooring for the upstairs will be going in the next couple of weeks
and several other projects that need to be done are in progress.
You can imagine how that has affected my work and our house.
I’m not calling it our home any more just house.
Seems potential buyers have no respect for a persons home.
It’s just a house to them that they can totally disrespect, stomp thru and pick apart.
I admit I am having a hard time getting over being angry
especially since it hurt Pog so much.
This is the house he built, raised his daughters in and
we have had such a wonderful home to live, work and dream in.
We are trying to forgive, forget and take one day at a time.
On a brighter note the good news is my daughter is expecting
a long awaited and longed for child.
New grandbaby will be arriving in August.
I had thought that by now we would be living closer to them
but instead I will be making lots of trips from one end of the state to the other.
Good ole I-40 in its constant state of construction.
One of the most boring drives across this state but at least it gets me to where I need to be.
Before all of the chaos took hold I was able to finish up rugs, which were on the Toika
and they are now available at OOAK gallery in Micaville.
Also in early spring I juried into the TRAC galleries
and have woven table runners and soft sculptures
available in both Spruce Pine and Burnsville.
My AVL is packed away and I just don’t have the heart to put it back together again.
When we thought we were moving it was taken apart and packed up.
If you have ever worked with an AVL loom then you know what an enormous task that is!
I will have little time to weave right now but will get back to the other looms
as soon as the house is restored to some sort of order.
Over a year ago I started piecing a Churn Dash quilt.
Since I needed something to help me keep my sanity I assembled it and started quilting.
Early every morning with my coffee in hand I can go to the studio
enjoying the peace/quiet and quilt for at least a half hour
till the endless list of tasks have to be started.
Sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to the blog.
It may not be too interesting but I will keep everyone updated on our progress!
Hope each and everyone is well, happy and a good kind of stitching, hooking, weaving busy!
