Future Home of Quilt Hollow

This photo was taken Monday morning just after we closed on the purchase of our new property and future home. We won't be moving for a year so our son can finish school. However, our current home is preparing for listing end of June. We decided if we are lucky enough to sell quickly than we move to a rental home and start building our new home.

It has been a busy week. I took some time away from quilting to help my husband paint and prepare for a garage sale he is having Saturday. (he is serious to move!) Then my 17 year old ended up at the ER for about 6 hours yesterday for what turned out to be severe stomach flu. I was passed out in bed by 7:30pm last night...simple exhausted. Today I've been trying to catch up on some email and paperwork. Tomorrow back to quilting....

The previous post has a giveaway mentioned. If you are interested in the win please leave a comment on the previous post.

Yayyy!!! I knew you were looking. Glad you found some place you liked. If I only lived closer, I would try to talk Dear Hubby into buying your house. His workshop and my sewing room would be waiting for us. No changes needed!

Barb said...

Congratulations, your new home will be wonderful. I'm glad your son is doing better. Yikes you guys are wearing shorts, we still feel like it's winter here, rain, cold and more rain.

How exciting it must be to plan your new home! Good luck selling the current house and making all the decisions you have coming up. I hope your son gets well soon.

Mary, we're on the other side of the spectrum from you. We built out dream home 16 years ago but now we're getting ready to downsize bz our baby is graduating high school this year. She'll be off to college this fall. She'll be going to the local university but is moving out with friends for the college experience that she wouldn't get at home. My other son will be home from his mission in December but then off to college soon after too so we'll be empty nesters. Wish I would have been sewing and quilting when we built this home bz the basement would have been laid out a little different but I make do. I'm sure your sewing room will be fantastic and perfect for you since you're stick building. It looks like a beautiful area for your new home and I wish you the best of luck with it all!
