I'm still here....

I survived my work week. It was hit or miss with busy-ness. The entire week has been a roller coaster of emotions. Once my parents left I figured we'd be back to normal. Think again, work was crazy. DD1 was ill... still. AND we got a call from our realtor that our house had an offer! For those of you just reading...we bought a newer home about 18 months ago. We moved and then put our older home on the market. We thought we'd sell it in 6 months. We could handle that. Boy were we wrong. Little did we know that the housing market would tank. Little did we know that 2 major businesses in our town would go bankrupt. So we will taking a BIG loss on this sale. But it will be sold. The mental relief is priceless. On an up note, I forgot to post a couple of treats we received at the quilt away weekend. Aren't they the cutest tins? Both filled with delicious goodness...... In addition, today I stayed home with the girls because DD1 was still ill. I didn't get a lot done but I did finish piecing this 4th quilt from the "Baby Fats" book. One more to go plus I have enough scraps...I might get a sixth quilt out of that stack...we'll see.
I worked on my doll quilt swap quilt. I am hoping to mail it before thanksgiving because it is due December 1st. I pieced a quilt back for a quilt I am sending to Jackie. I have been caught up in so much, I realized my turn for her to quilt...is HERE...yikes. I also finished 2 more Christmas presents. Only 15 to go... better get sewing.

Congrats on selling the house! We had the same thing happen many years ago, so I know what you mean about the relief of having it sold -- loss or not. Love the Baby Fats book!

I am glad you finally sold your house. Are you making all these baby quilts for Christmas gifts?

I'm sure the relief of getting the house sold is worth something. Who knew the housing market would suffer so much, or all the other financial crises that occurred. I miss the "good old days", whatever they were.
Safe travel wishes.
