No it's not another episode of storage wars. It's just a BIG unit full of our junk!
We started moving our
junk treasures to a storage unit closer to our new potential home. I have to show you, although I'm a bit embarrassed, the size of our unit.
See it's not small at all. And I can tell you it is full. We pack light so it takes up more space...right? I didn't use my cell for this picture lest someone steal our tire, lol.
We picked a great home that has been a bit neglected and could use some updates. Just wait until I show you all the back yard oh it is to die for. We are just about ready to close on it but there has been a small problem that the sellers need to correct first. We will be patient a little longer. And in the meantime we get to live with MOM. Oh Boy! It's all about challenges and opportunities!

So I've been off for 3 weeks now I think...It's been great! We've gone camping. Well it was camping in a "Rustic Cabin". I can't really recommend the Rustic Cabin. It was a bit more like a shack but it was fun and we laughed the whole time.
We saw some beautiful sites
Finished my July Doll Quilt for Joni, the theme was Red, White and Blue and we decided that it would work for us. I had lots of fun with this fabric that I got from Connecting Threads.
I won a wonderful giveaway from Kris she was having a blogaversary and I won!!! Thanks Kris these will come in handy with my new quilting space. I've already started using the little mini charm pack to make some hexi's.
Lori Holt and have just about finished this quilt top. Love the pretty pastel colors in this fabric line. I used 1 fat eighth roll to make 12 blocks. I wish I could tell you the name of this fabric line but the sewing room is all packed up and the tag is in a box somewhere. I have just enough left to use for binding.
My darling partner Marissa sent me a wonderful batch of gifts for our Santa Sack Swap. She said the bag is temporary but I disagree. She couldn't have picked a better Santa Sack for me. This bag will come in really handy with all of the shopping that I do at Joann's. I love how she wrapped all of the little gifts in fabrics. I will really be able to add to my stash with these sweet pieces. Thanks so much Marissa.
