If you follow my web newsletter, you know that I have inherited my mother’s home where I grew up. I have spent the last 6 months trying to re-decorate the house and get moved in. Lots of obstacles have jumped in front of me, but I am getting there slowly. The house is much smaller than my present house, so I am picking and choosing from among my possessions – that’s the easy part. What to do with everything that doesn’t fit is the hard part.
Rug hooking has been an absent element of my life these past few months. I hook my designs for Create and Decorate and that has been about it. I really miss my “pleasure hooking!” When I finally get settled, I am going to put the biggest rug I’ve ever hooked on my frame and just go to town — I sorely need a hooking fix!
Meantime, I can’t wait for sprint to fully arrive here on the northcoast of Ohio . . . we’ve had record snow and cold this year. You really cannot get muich moving done when you have 3 inches of ice in your driveways! So warm weather will definitely be a welcome thing. Of course, having 2 yards to maintain for a while is not going to be fun either.
So, that’s where my life has been and why you have not heard from me lately – it’s always something with me! Here is a pic of my new living room . . .
Now I have to get out from under this house in Amherst. Anyone want to buy a 2-story colonial in a sleepy little town with great schools? Just 30 minutes from downtown Cleveland and easily accessible to everywhere by highway and turnpike interchanges only 3 minuts or less away. Close to park and public pool, too. Great buy — in a beautiful old neighborhood.
