update beginnings

It's been just over one month that I have officially closed the Stitch Lounge.  It seems like a world away.  I have barely been sewing anything.  I can't believe how insane I let our lives get for 2 years.  I say 2 years even though I was open as the Stitch Lounge for almost three years, because the insanity started when I made the move to Greenfield.  So glad I did it for so many reasons but I am so relieved that it's over.

I still have a ton of fabric and supplies remaining.  I had (and still have) every intention of inventorying it all and selling in some way.  I toy with the idea that I will be making all sorts of stuff but honestly I'm kinda sick of seeing much of it.  I don't feel the need to create as I did these past years but I'm sure once I'm back in the swing of things it will return.

My sewing area at home is probably one reason I haven't been doing much sewing.  It gives me stress to be over there with all the odds and ends that were shoved in boxes in no particular order then dumped where it fit.  The photo above makes the space look good but look on the other side of my cutting table and....yikes!  I'm waiting for the organization bug to bite.

I did finally start a queen sized quilt for my bed.  First one ever.  It's a soft yellow and white Irish single chain.

It's way more piecing than I like and too little color but I feel like it's the perfect quilt for the simplicity that I'm trying to achieve with the new year.  How nice will a fresh yellow and white quilt look for this summer!?

There's been lots of baking going on around here.  Not so good for my waist line buuut we are having lots of fun experimenting with new recipes.  

I'm grateful that I was able to see what was best for our family.  For once I feel like I made a good decision and I don't regret it for a second.  It's been a really tough several years and I'm hoping that this is our year of recovery.  Looking forward to what the new year will bring.
