My new sewing room looked like this for several months as I unpacked and tried to make sense out of where to put my "stuff" in the new house:
As part of this grand scheme, I also retired from the practice of law, hopefully to allow myself to enjoy life, explore, observe, learn, create and grow. All things I felt were lacking in my life while practicing law. I also wanted to be nearer my two grandkids, who are now 5 and 7:
So, I now live down the street from my son, DIL and the 2 boys. I am enjoying new experiences through the eyes of the boys, such as Pumpkin Palooza at Victorian Square. I'm also getting involved in the community here and volunteering with several organizations as I decide what if anything I will do with myself from a work perspective.
The sky here is quite delightful. Here are a couple of shots I took from my backyard in October and November:
We've had some snow in the mountains (none in Reno). Here's a shot from my bedroom window:
And I have gotten my sewing room up and running! That was quite a job! I had no idea how much fabric I had squirreled away...now I do. I found projects that I had started years ago that are screaming to be finished (o.k., they may need a little work around to modernize them, but the basics are good). More to come on that topic.
I have also been FMQ my Gee's Bend quilt and working on an improvisational "15 Minutes of Play" type quilt trying to use up some of the mounds of scraps I have accumulated.
Oh, and let me show you a shot of my neighbors:
Wild horses roam around the neighborhood in herds as large as 8 or 10, although this mom, dad and baby seem to particularly like our little neighborhood for hanging out, munching on the grass and, of course, leaving piles of, well, horse poop!
O.K. - I've brought you up to date with most of what I have been doing in the last few months. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are getting into the spirit of Christmas. Boo is getting there:
And I've even started decorating my house!
Nothing like some sparkling lights to make a person feel festive!
Aaaaaanyway, that's it from Robertsonville!
