Remember Me?

Hi! My name is Amy and I knit, quilt, work (a lot), travel ... and there's a rumor that I blog.

It has been a shockingly busy two weeks. I last posted from Seattle on April 25, before heading to a softball game at UW. In the fourth inning of that game, the Hubster IM'd me that he was getting a job offer in Pittsburgh. Which would be my hometown.

He accepted that job early the next morning. Since then, we have gotten about 85% packed, we have an open house scheduled for our house tomorrow and our first looky-lous showed up to check out the place yesterday.

WE'RE MOVING TO PITTSBURGH!!!! I still can't quite believe it, but I'm very excited about it.

So a week ago today, I forgot to take a true "before" picture, but at about 10 am, here's what the living room looked like

By 1 pm, three of my crazy, amazing, wonderful, fantastic quilting friends showed up

That's Carol on the left, Lisa in the middle and Sandy on the left. They stayed through dinner and by the next morning, it essentially looked like this

Amazing, huh?

So that's where I have been for the last two weeks. I'm an old pro at handling the home stretch of softball season, which is the part of the year I'm dealing with right now. The moving part isn't so awful, especially since I have amazing friends who were eager and willing to help out. Put the two together? I fall over exhausted at the end of each day and can barely string together enough coherent sentences to handle my job responsibilities. So the blog has suffered.

Jaywalker has a heel that is still being decreased. I have three baby quilts that are now totally finished, including binding sewn down and a trip through the washer. I'll hopefully get that blogged about in the next 72 hours or so.

Hope all of you are doing great. Thanks for bearing with me during this crazy time. Once I get my life back, there will be plenty of knitting and quilting to blog about. Promise!

Wow, that is some impressive cleaning/organizing/packing! Think I can enlist them to pack up my house when we move?

Hi again, I'm sure you're busy, but I thought I'd give you some blog fodder:

How are those Jaywakers coming?
