Happy Wednesday everyone!!!
Change is one of those constant things in life. Some people like change and some people... well lets say 'fight it tooth and nail' all the way! I would say I'm in the middle ground. I like change well enough, but sometimes if it's a BIG change with lots of uncertainties it makes me nervous. My experience over the last few months however has been that no matter how big the change, everything works out for the better... now I've just got to start believing that.
One change I have to tell you about is... I've just signed up for a beginners Quilting Class!!! That right folks I'm broadening my crafty horizons! I'm not the best with a sew machine but I do know how to sew a (semi)-straight line. Over the past week or so I've been slowly collecting all that I might need to quilt. Cutting board [check!], rotary cutter [check!], fabric scissors stolen from my mother [check!] (hope you're not reading this mom!). There's still a couple more pieces of equipment that I need to get, so I'll pick one thing up every week until the first class. It'll be like picking up supplies for the school year! Building anticipation one purchase at a time :) I don't know too much about the class right now, but I do know
Another BIG change that has been slowly creeping into my life is my house! Of course 'slowly' is a relative term... The boyfriend and I, dad, brother's and cousin's started building this back at the end of June and here we are today…
In the last 3 weeks we went from having no roof to having the roof completely sheeted in, shingled, windows in, some doors in, stairs on AND have started the exterior foam insulation and siding! PEWF! I even ventured up onto the scaffolding yesterday to help tyvek the exterior... a new brave accomplishment for me! Let's just say heights and Melissa are not two things that go together very well.
I'd say we're trucking along at an excellent pace so far and are hoping to get in during the winter sometime, which is MUCH sooner than we had anticipated. Is it possible to be scared and excited all at the same time???? I'm terrified of all the new expenses we'll have but at the same time I cannot wait for a bit of independence. Talk about being conflicted about change!!!
Speaking of change how do you all like my new blog layout???? I've been working hard trying to fix some of the bugs and glitches and I've been very busy making it pretty yet fun all at the same time. Send me your thoughts! Like it? Hate it? Does something look like it doesn't work??? Let me know!
