Goodbye to Florida, and hello to Georgia!

It's hard to see the house empty, but we know the adventure has begun. I think it will take awhile to un-load all the stuff and get it sorted and put away in the new house. I also have the feeling I will be looking for stuff for months after the move!!

Living room




The studio progress is steady and I am so excited to see how it looks with walls! Once the floor is down, we will be able to assemble the machine tables and get the quilting up and going. I figure that part of the studio will be the only thing in there until Tim has time to put together all the Ikea shelves! There will be very little sewing going on for at least a couple of weeks.
My scarf is almost done!

Simple pattern, but still pretty.

I can't believe the Christmas cactus has decided to burst into bloom today, of all days. The flowers are beautiful, but I think too fragile to survive the trip in the truck. Hopefully, some of them will hold off opening until we get there.

I love the delicate flowers and the unusual pink and white color.

Well, it looks like it will be a quiet Christmas next week, as the kid's plans didn't materialize to come visit us. We have had Christmas by ourselves before, but it is never easy. I miss my family most during the holidays, and expect a little weep on Christmas morning. Next year, I plan to have all of them there...I figure I have a year to make it happen, so that will be the project for 2015.
My kids. Next year, guys...you WILL be home for Christmas!!
We will be unpacking and will have the turkey dinner as planned, despite not having family to share it with. We have our health and a lovely new home, so its all good.
The next post will be from Georgia! Stay tuned.
