lots and lots going on in August....!

First off, we finally MOVED! Hooray! It's been a *long* road (I won't bore you) but we are finally in our new house! I showed pics of it in the late spring, that shows how long it's taken... Couldn't be happier tho, now that we're here! :o) It's been less than 3 weeks since we moved in, but it really already feels like home! :o)
Oh, Jmmy in this picture -- this picture is right after we signed the papers, and Jimmy wanted to go play in his room immediately, but I told him that I wanted this picture taken "first", so we'll always have this moment... So yeah, he was mad.... At least we'll always have this cute story to tell... :o) 

Here is my old window, that I re-did with the chicken wire -- my new inspiration board. This is hanging right above my sewing machine... I've already added more things to it, since this pic was taken a couple of days ago! :o)  

This is an old dresser that Jim re-finished for me, that I'm using for storage in my sewing room. Laurie made me that wonderful red train case - I have all my trims and ribbons in it. And an old colander for some of my yarn... :o)  

Also this month, David got his braces off! SO handsome, even if I do say so myself! He'll have to wear a retainer for quite awhile, but that's ok with him... :o)
And I've already been sewing in my new sewing room! This is a custom quilt for a friend of my sister's. It is throw size, and will be hand quilted... :o)
And last but not least, school started today! Anna, Elizabeth and David are Freshmen this year! (And even in Drivers Ed! UGH!) and Jimmy starts all-day Kindergarten tomorrow! Oh, where did my babies go!?!
So hopefully, now that we're getting settled in, I'll be back to sewing and crafting, and be able to post more... Thanks for hanging in there with me! :o)

Congrats on the move! I used to move all the time, but haven't moved since Jason was about a year and a half old. I can't imagine how difficult it would be o move now that we have more stuff! Not to mention, more kids! Love the chicken wire idea - I've been mulling over something like that for myself.
