Welcome to my House!!! Blog Hop

Welcome! A big thank you to Carol who is hosting this wonderful blog hop!

Grab a cup of coffee or tea if that’s the way you like it. There is sugar somewhere around here, and the way my kids go through milk, there is probably a fresh gallon we just bought this morning in the fridge. I would say grab a seat and put your feet up, but most of the chairs still have boxes on them and they aren’t quite unpacked yet. Yep, unpacking in this neck of the city is still going on. And of course, wouldn’t you know it, we are down to one car!!!

Between getting the girls into their new schools and accommodated, and driving my husband back and forth to his job, unpacking and cleaning…there isn’t much time to sew. Or to even unpack much of my sewing stuff completely. I found this cute little easy 12 inch quilt block that I was intending on finishing today. I tried to pick scraps of fabric that kind of resembled our house. Yes, our door is red, there are white curtains in the front windows. Since it is the beginning of fall, I refuse to plant anything in the front yard, so it looks as bare as the black I used for the ground. We don’t have a chimney and the roof is black….for now. I hear flyover state winters can be harsh.

I did get the fabrics cut though, that’s a big step in the right direction….I will get it done tomorrow and post it, I swear! It will look a lot better than the way I laid it out. I found the pattern for free over at The Spruce Crafts.

This looks like an awesomely easy 12 inch square, easy enough for even a beginner to do, and big enough to make a dozen or so and a nice size lap quilt out of.

So come back on Saturday and see what that bunch of blocks turns into! It’s magic what we do. 🙂

  1. Moving makes such a chaotic mess of our lives so I feel for you. A red door is something I’ve always wanted because it seems to brighten everything about a house…even one with a black roof. Thanks for sharing even in the middle of all you’re doing!

  2. Moving is exciting but so much work…. I love the red door on your block. It looks like it will go together nicely. I look forward to stopping back again and seeing your progress. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Well it’s a start and that’s saying alot in the middle of a move and unpacking. I’m impressed that you were able to find your fabric let alone your machine. Looking forward to the finished piece especially the red door.

  4. Thanks for sharing in the middle of your “chaos.” I haven’t moved in 39 years and I don’t look forward to doing it again. I was 2 weeks away from giving birth to my daughter. I’m glad that you did find time to cut some fabric and YES that is a start. I have two quilts with October deadlines and haven’t found time to cut either of them out yet. I need to get busy, busy, busy. Thanks for participating in the hop.

  5. Thanks for sharing your little block and walking us through it even in the midst of your chaos. It will get better and this little block will be a reminder of the early times in your new home.

  6. Moving is so much work, but it is fun to sit back and enjoy the new home when the unpacking is finished. Thanks for sharing your project- take some time to reward yourself with a bit of sewing after the chaos diminishes a bit.

  7. Will do can’t wait to see….
