A Little About a Lot of Things

Looks like we’re heading home soon!

Posted on: November 1, 2009

We don’t have an exact date yet, but G says within the next two weeks!  Hurray!  I’ve really loved New England and have met some great people, but it’s time.  The weather is turning cold and dreary, the beautiful leaves are little more than a colorful carpet and I miss my kitties!  G still has some work on the Huntington bridge (redoing the bridge deck and asphalt and some steel repair) and when it’s complete, we’re loading up and going home.

On another note, I’ve been working hard at my store on Etsy and have had six sales since opening!  Two were from Yamilette, but that’s okay-a sale is a sale!  I’m pretty excited about it, I didn’t know how it was gonna go.  When I get home I know I can add more items, sewing here is a slower process that I’m used to.  It’s really hard not to have all my favorite toys and tools here and it makes it less efficient.  Here’s a few of the things that have sold:

This was a custom order for Yamilette for a Coupon Holder to match her purse:

Here’s Cosmetic/Toiletries bag that I copied from the one I take when I travel, only larger:

That one sold within a day of listing it-I was so surprised!  There’s a couple more, but these were my faves.

I’ve got a lot to do in the next week, getting ready to go home.  Gotta pack (yuk) and figure out where to put all this stuff I’ve accumulated since I’ve been here.  It’s only another two boxes of sewing stuff, but there is only so much room in the truck.  Remember that G was here in June and came back to Florida to pick me and the bike up?  Well, my stuff barely fit in the cab of the truck coming back, and he only had an overnight bag in it then.  I may actually have to ship a couple of boxes-I have acquired a bit of a stash since getting here!  We do have the trailer, but the Springer takes up most of it.  I may be able to tuck a few small bags here and there-extra padding, right?

I need to go back to Webs and get some yarn.  Their prices are so good, I hate not to bring some home.  Of course, I have hardly worked on my socks since I got the sewing machine, but still…I may want to knit when I’m home.  Or on the 18-20 hour drive back.   Another trip to Osgood’s in also in order.  There are quite a few fabrics I want to take home.  I haven’t bought them yet because of the storage issue in the hotel room, but I can just ship them since I won’t be needing them before I leave.  I think my credit card is gonna get quite a workout in the near future!

It’s been a good time in Massachusetts, and I hope to come back in the spring with G to finish the other three bridges.  At least we’ll know the area and have some friends up here.  A few of them are threatening to come to visit us in Florida when the snow gets deep.  That would be fun, if they can handle the heat!
