It has been over a year since there have been any updates and I think it's time to start this blog up again.  What can I say, Life got in the way.  In the past year we completed a bunch of projects, purchased another sewing machine and made a move from California to Oregon.  We have met lots of new quilters and sewers to inspire us and now we just closed on a new home.  Considering the move, I thought this would be a good way to keep our families and friends up to speed with what is going on in our lives.  Over the next few weeks I will try to post to get everyone up to speed on what we've done over the past year, and our lives we are starting here in Oregon.

Here are some before pictures of our new home.  We have some painting and some updating to do but this is what it looked like on closing day.  I cant wait to see if after all our furniture is in and our updates are done. 

The dining and living rooms.  We have already started taking the yellow wallpaper off the walls to realize there are two more layers under it.  Removing this is the plan for the coming weekend.

This room will become my office.

These are pictures of the main living areas, Kitchen, Kitchen Nook and Family Room.  I can't wait to see what these rooms will look like after some color on the walls and our furniture in them.  We did find a round cherry table for the nook.  it will be different not eating dinner on the couch.

The staircase that leads to the second floor.  Up here we have a bathroom, bedroom and bathroom for visitors, the master bedroom and most important, the sewing room.

Outside we have a wraparound deck, we have to have it rebuilt because it is old but we are excited to see the finished product with the new materials we decide to use.
