A Whirlwind Week ~

It was a crazy week around here this week… with all eyes focused on getting us listed at the beginning of the week… waiting sooo slowly for the ad to go live on our home!

Well we went live on Wednesday afternoon… then had a showing Thursday and 2 on Saturday and I think we may have found THE BUYER!!! More to tell next Sunday when all the dust has settled so to speak 🙂 In the mean time we can ….

I snagged this awesome blessing to welcome in October on Facebook 🙂 I was so excited to find this neat quote I forgot who I got it from to leave credit! But I haven’t spent much time surfing Facebook… I have spent most of this waiting time STITCHING!

First I quickly stitched the apple pie above.. cleaning the house/yard/property and stitching alternately… Then I hooped up the pepper grinder to start on next…

And… this is where it sits with my “go bag” for when we leave our home for showings …

The scissors and thimble are my daily use items… the bag was gifted me by my bestie Connie for my birthday or just because … lol! But really I quit stitching on my project to take with me and focused more on a long time missed project…

That is right! I finally set back down to Appalachian Delight and put some stitches in this week!

I got past the official half way mark of the quilt this week by passing the midpoint of this row of sashing stitching I am working on… and it feels so good to stitch.. esp in front of the fireplace!

Linking all this hand stitched fun to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<< where she encourages us to pick up needle and thread for some restful stitching today! Come on over by clicking the link and see what everyone else is up to and get INSPIRED!!!

I also traded out my nail strips for this set… LOVE THESE!!!!

Which brings this oldie but goodie to remember… and we do sleep under quilts in this home!!!

In closing I will share this sweet photo of my best friend, Jannessa, with 2 of her 10 grands… she loves them all equally too 😀

So thanks for stopping in and please keep our President in your prayers as he deals with Covid on his terms…

    I’m so excited for you, a possible buyer already, fantastic! I’m so glad you are quilting ion the big quilt again, I can’t wait to see this one finished. Have a lovely week, hope the sale goes through. Happy stitching!

    Oh my, that must be the quickest sale ever! How exciting for you all! Appalachian Delight is looking a treat. It must be nice to be quilting it again.

    Good luck on the sale! I know you would like to get settled in before the holidays and colder weather. I’ve been Quilting in my Angel quilt. Didn’t like the background quilting I did, so I “unquilted” it yesterday. I woke up this morning with a new idea for the background, so I’ll be playing with that today. Have a good day and week and fingers crossed for a sale to go through quickly.

    A quick sale is no surprise! Who wouldn’t love your house and yard. Hope it all goes through smoothly and quickly. You are organized with a stitching bag ready to go on short notice. The other day I was standing in line someplace (with mask on and SDing) and there were two ladies talking about their nails and holding them up in the light. I said to myself, they look like what Kathi wears. Very nice! Good job on keeping up with your hand stitching progress.

    How wonderful that you may have already found a buyer for your home. Have you looked for a new place for yourselves yet? I love that you have gotten back to your quilting. I always like to see what you have done. Your redwork is really pretty. Good idea to have a “to go” bag when you need to leave the house. I am having nail and nail strip issues recently so I am taking a break.
