It's official. We closed on the sale of our Massachusetts home yesterday and are officially New Hampshire residents. The last three months have been exhaustingly full with activities related to the sale of one house and the renovation of the other.
As you know, I have a new sewing room (one of the major requirements of the renovation) and I will share that with you in another post. I finally was able to take a break from the unpacking, cleaning and entertaining (my favorite activity up here by the way!) to go for a little practice run in the new room.
The house is beside a little cove on a large lake and we have converted a screened-in porch to a year round sunroom with lots of windows and comfy seats and a new window seat that is long enough for sleeping on. The furniture in the room is rugged and covered in Sunbrella as part of the dog/kid/bathing suit friendly environment. What a pleasant surprise the current offering of Sunbrella outside fabric is with a wide variety of colors and patterns and a soft, fabric feel. Joann Fabrics has an extensive supply of outdoor fabrics and I was able to pick up enough yardage on sale to cover this 7 foot long window seat.
So much fun to have a finish! I cannot wait to get back to playing with my quilting cotton to make a few more pillows for this window seat!
We have a loon family hanging out in our cove this summer. Mom and Dad appear to be teaching Baby Loon the necessary skills to survive. What a lovely sight and sound most mornings and evenings.
More new neighbors down the road to get to know.
It's safe to say that we are embarking on a MAJOR new chapter of our lives. Moving full time to a house on a lake in New Hampshire that is one half hour away from a place to just to buy socks is a little different compared to our home in Massachusetts where we could be in downtown Boston in less than a half hour! I'm so excited about the adventures ahead, not to mention all the time in my new sewing room!
