Stuff, Stuff, & More Stuff

It has been quite the weekend around here. On Friday a dozen movers descended upon our house, packed our stuff up {in a haphazard sort of way} and moved it four doors down to our new house. While it has been rough to move all of a sudden, we are so blessed by how the situation has worked out. Since we were living in rental housing, we were able to move out of our old place and into a new one without much more than being inconvenienced {and it was amazing to spend so much time at my parents' house!}.

Although there is still a lot of cleaning and organizing to do, we're getting settled back in. It sure seems kind of trivial in comparison to the national disasters in New Zealand and Japan {my heart and prayers go out to all who are there or have loved ones there}.

Lily's Quilts QALSorry to change subjects so quickly...but on to a bit brighter subjects. I've joined my first Quilt-A-Long at Lily's Quilts. What I love most about it is that there is an option to make a wall hanging with just one block, or to make the whole six for the quilt. Since I've got a lot going on right now, I'm just going to make one block, and I'm going to use some of the My Happy Garden by Cloud 9 that I purchased back in January {pictured above} and maybe some gray for background. I am excited to get to use it!

I think that about covers it for today {sorry for such a wordy post!}. This week is off to a busy start, so hopefully I will have some more fun things for you later this week.


  1. Glad your move went pretty smoothly; enjoy your quilt along!

  2. Moving's a nightmare I know,it usually snows when Hubby has to move camp.
    Gorgeous choices for Lynne's QAL

  3. Congrats on the move! Beautiful fabric.. look forward to seeing as the block!

  4. Those fabrics are just so beautiful and serene and you make sure you have the newest QAL1 template before you cut into them :-)
