Quilt Hollow Moving - Part Two
For those who follow my blog know that we purchased land to build a home nearly two years ago. However, our house didn't sell when we thought it would so the land is naked. The surprise sale of our house forced us into finding a rental home which ended up being no easy task especially this time of year and we weren't about to sign a lease until closing so that made things even more difficult.
It seemed the odds were against us with plenty of ups and downs of emotions. I spent countless hours scouring the rental sites and calling leasing offices. Then on a Saturday I was checking Craig's List ALOT (meaning at least every half hour!) when I found this house.
Their home has a bonus room above the garage for my longarm! That's a bonus because I was seriously considering putting it the living room or selling it. (I'd hate to sell it!) I can watch tv in a bedroom right?
It's an older home but with charm and character. The owners were so kind and after talking with us must have liked us too because they were so sweet to say they would wait one week to see if our home would close before they needed to find other possible renters! I have double lady bug luck! (see previous post for Part One)
This past weekend we gave them our deposit and will be moving mid-February to our temporary home! There are no plans as of yet to build. We don't have a building plan nor a builder...just taking things a day at a time for now.
So many of my blogging friends have been so kind as to leave me messages and I've been neglectful of replying. Please, please know that your comments mean the world to me and in free moments I try to pop in on your blogs for quick peeks but can't take lots of time to comment at moment.
One more thought....you know what my stress reliever is? Quilting! My things have been getting boxed up and I can't quilt so I'm looking forward to finally being settled back into Quilt Hollow's NEW temporary home so I can quilt again.
