This was the perfect theme for my return!
It was at least six years ago that I decided I should downsize and thought I would like a Cape-style house. I finally found "the one" in the spring of 2015 and was able to purchase it last summer. After six months of renovations, I moved in just before Christmas; however it took an additional 4 months of purging/donating/recycling and packing to be completely out of my former home.
Going from a large house, in which I lived in for 40 years, with 12' ceilings and a two-floor, cat free dedicated studio, to a small house has been a challenge. I thought I would be able to sew in the living room, but sharing that space with four very interested cats has proved impossible.
Plan B is to set up my sewing room in a second floor bedroom. My design wall will remain in the living room on the first floor and my fabric dyeing can be done in the basement. I love the new house and eventually it will become "creatively functional," but meanwhile I am feeling very confined by my lack of space which is what I am hoping this quilt conveys.
clearly she didn't like the placement of the C!
