July 2019 Leaving California

Hello Friends,

Hope your year is going wonderful. 

It's been a busy year with lots of changes. We have been looking for a home in Idaho and finally found a house we love with 1 acre property. It's like a forest behind the house. We love it. We are only into week 2 of the process of Escrow. Anything can happen so it's neve wracking. 

I'm going to post a few photos, I'll talk later more about what's going on and what part of Idaho after we get the keys in our hot little hands!

Idaho is not a cheap as it once was to move too. About 2005 we wanted to move there, but for whatever reason we did not, probably mainly because we had just purchased a new home in 2003. I think the memory of moving just across town was and how hard it is to move was too fresh in our minds. Moving out of state takes a lot of planning and perfect timing. 

We've been to Idaho twice this year, had many outings with the family and a few camping trips. It has been a fun busy year!

The house we are purchasing is about 300 sq ft less than the house we have now, so we have to get a few pieces of furniture that are smaller, one the dining room table. I won't be cooking for a big family  anymore, so time to get a smaller table. I am trying to find something with grey and that will also fit with my hutch. This is not easy.

Here is Kirsten's Christmas Quilt I made for her birthday. I used Sweetwater fabric again. I used Merry Starts Here Fabric Collection. I made up my own pattern so I could use those darling printed snowman they print and designed. I am really hooked on Sweetwater Fabrics! Kirsten is happy and she wanted it for her birthday so she could use it for Christmas.

Have a wonderful week in August! my least favorite month of the year! to hot!!!


  1. Idaho is gorgeous and the people are great. I used to live in Utah and got to Idaho sometimes. Always loved it.
    I wish you every good thing in your new home.
    Not sure how I missed this post, it never showed up in my feed until this week. Very odd.

  2. I hope everything works out for you, I know how much you have wanted to move, that will be a big change going to smaller but will be nice not to have so much to clean and take care of, having woods behind the house will be very nice! The quilt is just beautiful, I can see how happy she was with it!


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
