New Digs

Life is certainly hopping lately. With our home in So.California in escrow it became time to seriously find new digs for ourselves. This required jumping on a plane and heading off to Paducah Kentucky to see what might be available. While there were many lovely places (ok, and some not so lovely places) we fell in love with this little house.

We feel very lucky to have found someplace that so suits us. It's current owners have made some contemporary upgrades while leaving some really incredible 'true - retro' elements in place. Bedroom #2 will be my studio until the new studio can be finished off -- (a truly wonderful space). This leaves a 3rd bedroom for company.

So we continue to work closings in both locations with fingers crossed that all continues along well.

Til then it feels great to be back home and turning the focus on 'quilt' stuff again.

Wanna see inside the new place?

Oh, Rose, It's gorgeous. It could be a photo taken in Southern California. I can't wait to see the inside!

it is a fun house Val -- the inside is a mix of retro & contemporary. being home and having access to my own wi-fi should mean photos soon.
