New Home pictures

Happy Halloween.  October 31, 2013.

Today marks 30 days since we bought our new home.  The time flew by this month. We have everything  in place now and it feels like we have lived here forever. ( well almost everything - we still have a couple of boxes of family photos to go through.)
Here are a couple of pictures.

More pictures later.  

We met several of our new neighbors tonight while loads of kids were Trick or Treating on our street.
Everyone has been so friendly!
I think we are going to really like living here.

Fabric Painting

My sweet friend, Jan is working on something new.   Her projects always amaze me.   Now she is doing fabric painting.  This is her grandson.  I can not wait to see this completed!

Sewing room ready for action!

It has been busy here in our new home.

I finally got my sewing room set up. I still have a few bins to go through but for the most part I am ready to start working on some projects.  A special thank you to my friend Jean for helping me get started on getting this room in order.  It took several days to get everything in place.

I have several unfinished projects that I am determined to get done before I start anything new.

Here are some photos of how it looks  now.

I had some space for a small design wall!  And my DH installed my new TV for me.

Still need to organize a little better by color but at least I can see most of my fabric. I was able to stuff my batting into that little corner. 

I have a nice view of my front yard out of that window and it provides some great sunlight.

Another view of the fabric wall.

This has been a busy 2 weeks.  My DH and I bought a new home in Houma and sold our house in Raceland. We started moving in on October 6th and as of last night, October 16th we are 95% all settled in. Not bad for 10 days of nonstop work.  It was a great feeling to get all of the boxes and things out of the garage so quickly.  We still have some boxes in the guest room and dining room but we are almost there!

I am so thankful that my two DILs helped unpack and organize my kitchen and a wonderful friend came over on Saturday and helped me get most of my sewing room in order.

Thank goodness we had a moving company move the furniture.  We are too old to be handling heavy stuff. My DH and I moved all the boxes and small items.

I am amazed at how much STUFF one collects over the years.  We brought about 10 pickup truck loads of items to our local thrift store while we were packing.  As I unpack I have set aside about 15 boxes of items to bring to the little thrift store near our new home.

We moved from a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house to a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home so I have to clean out and get rid of loads of stuff.  It gets easier with each box to pick out things to give away instead of putting them away.

 I will post some pictures of our new home later and I will post a picture of my new sewing room as soon as I get it in order.  I am almost all organized in there.
