Since the first of the year I have staged, listed, sold and moved three houses. That includes my mother's house, which took as much work as either of my own despite help from my four siblings and my mom. Her house and the one we had in California got combined into one house, requiring lots of downsizing, yard sales, a sale and auction of my father's collection of Arts and Crafts antiques in Berkeley, and installation of the remainder into an antique mall in Monterey, both a few hours drive from our new house and each other.
About the time our California contractor started building a garage for the new house down there while we sorted our island house up here to put into storage what we wanted to keep for a future house to share with my husband's parents, I came to the realization I absolutely had to let some things go. Sorry the change was so abrupt. Anyone who's been through even one house sale and move should understand.
I have been doing some knitting; mostly simple stuff for my sanity. I do have some things to share in the near future. And I have some knitting events coming up.
Anyone who can get to Seattle on Wednesday, October 1st needs to know that Lucy Neatby will be speaking at a special meeting of the Seattle Knitters Guild that evening. She'll be in town for a series of workshops through Churchmouse. Yes, I'm signed up for ALL of them.
It's nice to be back.
