So John and I have moved in to the house we're renting. Still working on getting the boxes all unpacked. We're definitely comfortable and have everything we need - very grateful for that. It's nice to live together now. One of the best things about the house is that we have three bedrooms.. And one of them happens to be dedicated to sewing! Whoohoo! Here's a picture of part of the sewing room (still messy.. who am I kidding - it'll always be messy).
I'm very happy to have this space to call my own. From this view, to the left is the cutting table and against the wall across from the desk is the ironing station. I also have a good sized closet full of the 'stash' of fabric! It's a nice big window that allows a lot of light to come in for most of the day.
The other sewing news is that I went to the Hampton Quilt Show with a few ladies from the shop. It was my first time ever going and it was certainly quite impressive. Lots of quilts entered for competition and then a lot of booths for shops and dealers to show their goods so to speak. Only $5 to get in - definitely worth it for an educational day (with a fair amount of shopping too of course).
Other than that the news is that I just finished my first week at a new job! I am officially a Coastal Liaison for a state environmental department. Yes, a downtown job. I have to admit, despite the traffic, it's quite nice to get out of my old situation. I'm still getting into the swing of things at the new job but once I get a bit more comfortable I think it's going to be a really great thing for me.
So, now that we have internet (after 4 hours of phoning crazy Verizon) I hope to be blogging more often!
