Hello, Friends!  I wish this was a great sewing entry, but this is just me being random, so if you are here for the sewing, you are welcome to exit now, I won't get my feelings hurt.

Today is my son's last day of Third Grade!  How did that happen?  Seems like just yesterday I was dropping him off at his first day of Mom's Day Out.  My fiercely independent child was looking at all the other kids clinging to their mothers with what can only be described as a, "You guys are idiots," look on his face.  In all our years of various activities he has never suffered from separation anxiety.  Chock that up to being an only child, I guess.  This morning was no different.  I thought he might be trepidatious with the upcoming move, but no...he hopped out of the car ready to seize the last day of school.

Now, I should be working on my ever mounting do list, but here I sit writing.  In times of chaos and extreme stress I have to exert myself in some creative manner in order to stay sane.  Since I can't really sew anything right now, or paint anything, writing is the outlet of choice.  The great thing about writing is, it doesn't require much.  Pen and paper, or a computer, lipstick and a get the idea.  When all the markers and paints and fabric are packed away, there is always some way to write.

In the coming week we will transition from Indiana to Tennessee.  We are moving to the Chattanooga area (forgot to mention that last time).  Our house has been on the market for 12 days and we have had 12 showings.  I know it is only a matter of time until we have an acceptable offer, but STRESS!!!  Please send happy vibes my way for the house to sale quickly.  Poor St. Joseph doesn't want to stay buried in the front yard after all!

If over the next few months weird non-sewing entries pop on the blog, please forgive me.  It is just me stress reducing.  I promise that sewing will be happening again soon (hopefully we can find a new house quickly and the machines won't sit in storage too long).  Until then hugs to you all!


  1. Sorry to hear that you are stressed. Moving house is a pain in the rear and you are really moving some distance. Good luck with selling your house. I hope that it gets snapped up soon. Sending calm, happy thoughts. Xx

    1. Thanks, MoR! Keep sending those calming vibes my way.

  2. Happy vibes sent your way! 😊 Moving is stressful but it's also exciting, I hope you try to cherish the anticipation of the new and forget the stress of the moment 😊

  3. Good luck on the house sale, the move, and every thing else coming down the pike. Feel free to unload here anytime. :-) Deep breaths, some chocolate, and a tasty cocktail are in order.

  4. Lladybird is Tennessee based I think. Nashville? Now that school is out for summer, houses and moving season begins.

  5. Ughhhh! Totally in the throws of a move too. Chattanooga isn't far from Atlanta :-) maybe a roadtrip is in order.
