    i’ll bet it felt good to be quilting again. now that you’ve got a contract the next couple of months will fly by. then before you know it, you’ll be at the sewing machine again churning out quilts like you always do. Like i said before, you can’t keep a good woman down and out. Just like a spring compressed, she’ll spring back into action before you can turn around.

    Moving is not conductive to quilt related activities. When we moved from TX to OK 5 years ago, we had the same problem you do. Housing was in such short supply that we weren’t able to find a place before we both had to report to our new jobs. Apartments were hard to find in the town as well. We were lucky and found a house the 2nd day we were in our new location, but it wasn’t finished yet. We lived in a hotel for 30 days before we were able to move in. My sewing machine was at my sister’s house, a 2 hour drive away, which is where we went on the weekends. I’d have gone nuts if not for those few hours of sewing I got to do on the weekends. I definitely needed the stress releif!

    I hope all the stars align for you soon on the housing front. It’s such a frustrating feeling to not know where you’ll be living.

    I’m glad you got to do some quilting again. Glad to here things are looking up in the house department. I have a sticky note on my bathroom mirror with your name on it to remind me to include you in my prayers.
