I am slowly packing up my craftroom (and the rest of the house) to move to a new home in on March 1st. Even though I am excited about this move, it also makes me a bit sad. Over the past 3 years, many new ideas were conceived and made by hand in this room.
My business has grown so much in this time and I have somehow transformed from closet crafter to internationally published quilt designer... who knew where this would all lead or where it will go from here! I am certain that my new craftroom will be just as inspiring or maybe even more so once I get everything sorted out.
Our new home will have much more space, and a much-needed dishwasher because what crafter ever has time to do the dishes!?! We will also be able to finally add a sweet little cat friend to our family! I will be a neighbour to two of my best friends from high school and I have already met one of my new crafty neighbours in blogland whom I can't wait to invite for tea & sewing!
Everything seems friendlier and much more family-oriented in New Westminster than it does here in Burnaby. People even say Hi back to you when you pass them on the street! Claire will be going to the most quaint little school of 66 students right across from a beautiful park. I think the change of scenery will be a plus for me... I am even thinking of starting karate again after 10 years of not doing much of any sort of exercise. I will have to check out the dojo that's a two minute walk from our house. Add that to the already planned evening strolls with friends through the very hilly streets, and Dance Dance competitions! YAY!
