NEW BEGINNING

We are again attending to home projects.....still deliberating whether to stay in this house or sell.  Back and forth thoughts how to ready this house to sell or  move forward with longer term needs to last another 10 years.  So much has depended upon finding a suitable house to purchase and so far there's not a single one that checks all or most of our boxes.

What's a girl to do?  Start another project of course and then grab bits of studio time here and there to keep my creative self sane.

I dye-painted this 'sort of' landscape piece during one of our Fiber Junkies dye days.  We used thickened dyes as well as thinned one which were used to over-spray the backgrounds.

An inkling of an idea has developed about how to use this piece.....I'll be reporting back as it develops. 

Be sure to visit these fine blogs to see what others have been up to this week: Nina-Marie's Off The Wall Friday & Sarah's Whoop Whoop Friday.

No matter what else happens, we must keep on stitching! It keeps us sane!

It is a good start! I look forward to seeing it develop.

Off to a good start. The thought of moving again would give me nightmares. Good luck!

House hunting can be so time consuming. I do appreciate how much can be done online these days. When I think back to finding our first home, in 1976, reading over the real estate ads in the Boston Globe and touring likely candidates on the weekend, I shudder. Then we were looking for a place to raise our children and commute to work. Now, there must be room for a studio and be conducive to our maturing years. Times of stress demand studio time. I focused on 4" x 6" pieces during the move before last. Not my favorite size to work, but easy to fit in to a short bursts of studio and put away should the realtor call with a last minute showing. Seems we think alike. Why I am I not surprised?

I don't envy you going through this process...deciding to go or stay. We decided when we built our home 20+ years ago it was our retirement home...now it's the home they will carry me/us out of. I can't even think of moving...guess I don't want to think about it...so here we sit...happy! Hope your decision making is an easy one and if you decide to move you'll find the perfect home!!!
