We’re here…thank heaven

Well, the move went off without a hitch…except that now we can’t find anything. It’s taken six days just to get my computer hooked back up to the internet. Nothing quite like being offline for an extended period of time to (twitch, twitch) show a girl (twitch) how addicted she truly is to the World Wide Web.

Still, we’re moved into our new home. A huge place with room enough for the hubby and myself, and my two sisters, and the zoo, and my parents and other sister just as soon as their houses sell…My husband is thrilled to have me back, which is probably why he hasn’t yet commented on my insistence on bringing the whole of Oregon to Kansas with us. Sadly, the buyer on our house backed out of the deal, so until the house sells (oh please, oh please, oh please let it be soon) we’re going to be paying an extra mortgage and things will be a little tight. (No more patterns, no more fabrics, no more threads…sob, sob!)

On the cross stitching front, I mailed out my Fair and Square Round #13 project to my partner…and just now realized not only did I forget to include a card (nothing like omitting those little social pleasantries, like…”Hope you like it” or “It was lots of fun to stitch” or “It kept me sane all the way through Wyoming when there was nothing else to do but count antelope”–247, for those who are curious) and I forgot to take pictures of it to show on my blog. sigh. Oh well. Life goes on. But at least this time I found my iron, so it was a nice flat pair of squares that I folded crisply in half, stuffed into an envelope and raced out the door with barely in time to catch the postman before he rounded the corner and was gone forever. Or until tomorrow.

Nevertheless, I am glad to be back in blogland. Glad to be down to my last 100 boxes left to unpack. And glad to finally be able to update myself on what all’s happening in your worlds. Hopefully, my next post will have a cross stitching picture attached!

Huggs to all and may you floss never tangle!

    Welcome to Kansas. Glad that the move went smoothly. Sorry that your buyer backed out. There is another one lurking around somewhere. Am behind in reading blogs so have probably missed out on some of you stories about stitching and moving. Everything will get better with time.
