- one laundry room flood; new pipes were required to fix it
- one bathroom sink leak; fixed with a new washer
- a backyard full of what we think are dew worms (making it all lumpy and yucky)
- someone break into our truck out front of the new home (only stole a couple cables no big deal)
just got rear-ended in said truck last Tuesday.
So... you could say it's been a bit of a challenge.
Being a home owner is waaayyyy more work than renting and well just kind of stressful all the time. I feel like we will be fixing things in this home forever! (there is more to the story here but until lawyers settle it I cannot discuss it).
But screw all that, let's talk about stitching!
I've got the baby piece I was working on complete! And have started the 'un-shareable' piece as well. But I have a smaller piece on the go that I will share in the next week or so that is my "break" piece from the 'cant show you' one; so there will still be updates to come.
I'm hoping things start to become less crazy and a little more manageable. We will see.
Here is the baby piece. I signicantly changed this piece to fit the size I wanted and put in the motifs I wanted as well. But love the way it has turned out. Colors were all chosen based on earth palette and what I had available in stash. It's on a 28ct Cashel Antique Linen. I'll be framing it here soon and sending it off to the baby it belongs to (who just turned 1, gah bad). I'm glad to see it done up and can't wait to get it in the mail off to baby.

Thanks for visiting! Hopefully I will have some new, better stories in the next couple months!
