Longarm quilting and snippets of my life

We’re finally moved into our new house. We love it. It was very hard work, but we had a lot of help from family and friends. It’s amazing how much stuff I have that needed to be hauled into my studio! It became a joke with everyone about how much I had. They just don’t get it. This is our house our new house

It’s wonderful having a garage again. The 2 big windows upstairs on the right, are my studio windows. I can be in there at any time during the day and I don’t have to have any lights on. I love that! My sister and I organized it a bit to make room for my new A-1. We put most of the stuff in the guest room for now. We’ve kind of taken today off from all the work of moving. My sister and I went to the new IKEA in Portland. I love that store, it’s so fun to see all the organizational stuff and funky and fun furniture. Most of it is too contemporary for my house, but I love to see it all. Tomorrow we’ll be back at it, going through boxes and figuring out where we’re going to put everything. Boy, this place is a mess!

    LOVE your new house!! How exciting to finally get settled.

    Ikea is a fun place to shop- I was thinking of re-doing my studio with their office furniture and for storage. I like their extra tall bookcases with doors on them.

    Anyhow, Congrats on your move! regards, Carla

    Carie, so glad you are all moved in and to get to see a photo of your new home! I’ve never been to an Ikea yet…….but will have to break down and visit the new store soon as I keep hearing about how great some of their things are for organizing.

    What a nice looking house and that studio area looks from the outside to be the perfect setup!

    I love Ikea for its organizational materials. (The furniture, however, reminds me of starting out stuff that young college students get, but I do like some of their desks and bookshelves for offices.) Love the small hat box type of storage containers they offer.

    When you get the A-1 all moved in, remember to post pics of the interior of the studio!


  4. Love your new house, Carie! I’m so glad you’re in, and I am looking forward to seeing you next week! Remember, I know what it’s like to move, and I don’t expect things to be in order. DO NOT knock yourself out for my visit. As long as we can get to the machine, we’ll be good!

    Thanks. I’m trying not to get too spastic over it. I get anxious when things are disorganized for too long. I’m working on it though. See you soon Lynn.
