Quilt Show....and Update on Me:)

 WOW!!! I can't believe it has been almost 2 months since I have last posted here on my blog!!! I have been sooooo busy these last several months.

First thing...I have moved!!!
My Hubs and I have bought a house back in our home town in Florida.
 I needed to be closer to my Mom at this time in her life...so, we went on ahead and found a lovely home just down the street from her and my sister.

    So, I packed up my little Mini Cooper...filled with my sewing machines and my 2 little poodles...and off I went.


It has been a huge blessing to be close to my Mom again. I love spending time with her. My sister is here too, with her kids...and my youngest Son too.
I have really missed my family since we moved away...it feels great to be back.

I got to take my Mom to the local Quilt show here. 
She really enjoyed seeing all the quilts.

Here are some pics for you to enjoy :) 
(There are some awesome quilters here in Jacksonville, FL)






My favorite quilt of the show turns out to be just below....
....and to make it even more awesome!!!!
One very super ambitious Lady made the above quilt in mini form!!!
I put my Mom next to it...to show you just how small this Talented Quilter made her version.
AWESOME!!! Right?!!
Of course...no Quilt Show is never complete without the SHOPPING parts:):)

Mom and I had a wonderful day walking around and seeing all the quilts, shopping, and running into friends whom I haven't seen since I left, almost 6 years ago.
It is sooooo good to be home.
I am after all I am a Momma's girl:):)

Settling in here at the new house...I promise to start posting more often:):)

Thanks for stopping by..
Hugs....Sandie

Welcome back! I'm happy for you that you can be close to your Mom; that's what brought me back here from New Jersey. Come join us at Cinnamon's on Mondays for sew day - that would be great! Lots going on there now. I hope Star can get back soon. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Hi Sandie, you have been a busy girl. Congratulations on the move, it must be hard with your hubby so far away; here's wishing you a speedy sell on your house.
Love the quilt show . . . those quilts are amazing. I would not stand a chance winning a ribbon with these women, LOL. Thank you for carrying your camera with you and sharing your day with us. Oh, and "Pretty Momma", too!
Happy October.
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Hi Sandie! What a surprise that you've moved! Glad that you are enjoying being close to family. But I bet you hated leaving behind your awesome studio!!...hope you'll have a new bright spot to work in FL. Best of luck with the transition.

xox,
Maggie

Glad your move (or most of it) is behind you. Poodles look comfy. Hope your husband can join you and reduce the travel back and forth soon. I went to this show- always a wonderful one. Look forward to more posts once you get your set up ready. The studio you had was a standout- so it must have been difficult to leave it. But new adventures await. We just moved our daughter here, too, and it was a saga and a half. But we are all home safe now. Glad you are, too.

Good for you! Sounds like the right decision family wise anyway!
