The Winds of Change are blowing...

The weather on Thanksgiving was a beautiful 57 degrees and sunny. Then during the night the winds was so loud and strong it woke me up at 5 am no Friday. Snow is on its way in droves. Just a few inches  at a time but my how different Thursday  was versus Friday -people were out riding bikes and motorcycles. Today we are checking where the snow shovels are and ice scrapers are stashed.

Change is also happening in life. My parents may have sold their home. The first load of unessential furniture is went on a  moving van to their second home. My husband drove the van and we helped get it loaded/unloaded. They will live 3 hours away not three blocks away but near my siblings and my mothers family. I think it will be a good move but things will just be different. So my mom cooked Thanksgiving dinner vs having it at our house. I forgot to take pictures... it was a great day.

Change is also happening in what I am finding that I like to do. I am crocheting again. I have found that I like to do little projects. I have been writing patterns which is a new adventure. I have one quilting pattern  nearly completed. I am spending time making quilts that have a bit more planning vs totally ad lib. I like both methods but i am not stashing fabrics for improv quilts so i need to have enough materials on hand.

And now the rush to get some holiday shopping in, it is beginning to look at like Christmas. Everywhere you go!

ps I have used up my photo storage that is free and I need to figure out how to get around purchasing more space after all these years of blogging!!I think I need to delete photos taken....

I believe I will have to change my blog address!! Watch for more change to come!!!!

Vicky, I ran into the same problem, but figured out how to use my flickr account - and keep my old blog. Nothing purchased, but instead of getting photos from Picasa, you get them from flickr. If you need more info, let me know.
