Update on Moving

We are 1/2 way thru with "Moving Boot Camp"; 6 weeks of $#&*. The floor is tiled, the roof will be finished today, and about 1/2 the boxable items are boxed up; we are tired but surviving!

I have of course been unable to stay away from art 100% and have been creating with the little bits that are left around me... Here is what has come out of the chaos...













These are ATC size (3 1/2" x 2 1/2")

I miss blogging! So HEY to everyone & THANKS for the encouragement in this moving ordeal!!! I'm getting a good workout on the roof and will be in shape for snowmobiling in a couple months!

If this is an indication of what you do amongst chaos, no wonder your work is so wonderful when you do have the chaos to contend with. These are great.

Hi: My first time to your blog. I followed you here from Beth's blog. My cousin Vicci (Moon Stars and Paper) does ATC's too, but your's are the first cloth bits I've seen. I really really appreciate the uniqueness of your style. I scrolled down and looked at others too. You are very talented, and I'm an artist myself, so I'm not just saying it. You truly are, but then you knew that. I have some of my works on my blog, should you care to drop in.

Well we miss you

I was thinking tonight

I am going to leave that girl a note and say

Update us on the move !!!

and here you are !

I love the new quilts.

the butterfly seems a symbol of the CHANGE

you are going thru in your life - moving from your coccoon of some many wonderful years.

.. The Angel watches over you and comforts you to let go and know this is going to be GREAT

Or...maybe The Angel is YOU .

Hang in there ! Snowmobile Rewards are just around the corner ! (yehhh, think of how STRONG your legs will be now !)

Love U, S.

I like them so much.. the angel and the butterfly..
I hope you finish your moving happily.. and start blogging again.. this is my first comment in here.. bur I did come regularly for a while.. and I'm waiting for your return..
I lived surrounded by boxes .. for 2 months.. as the house where I was going to move wasn't finished.. I couldn't even breath.. so I appreciate your crafting under these conditions.. love

Thanks for the visit. And thanks for your comment on my Sawsha. She was such a sweetheart. I need to post about my current cat Angel. May get to that later today. Hope you are enjoying your 3 day weekend - hope you got 3 days I guess would be a wish too.

I hope you found the time for a bit of Harley riding Monday!! All work and no play can get dull as mud! Happy to see your little works of art listed on ebay. Hope you find your new home to be WONDERFUL - and hope Blue and your kitty cats love it to. Many good thoughtsm JOY

You are very observant to see that is the same place I'm going Saturday as is behind Sawsha. Yes when I hit the trail I am more myself than anywhere else. I am alive free and so at peace in mother natures home. The Sierra Nevada Mts. are nothing short of mystical and magic for me.

Hey, I thought you were moving. Get back to work. LOL
