The Unpacking Begins

emo6

We are now in Emo, Ontario and got the keys to our new house on Sept 6th.   The moving truck arrived Sept 7th and the unloading day went smoothly with no problems.   I got the boys right to work unpacking the kitchen boxes as they came off the truck and we got that room organized.  Always a challenge to arrange items in kitchen cupboards and when I was stuck on a few areas my oldest son jumped in and solved the problems.   His merchandizing skills from working at a grocery store came in very handy!

Many of you asked about my new view so here it is!  Very different from my last one but I am going to focus on the positive and enjoy the big sky and open spaces. I’m sure it will take a bit of time too not feel so exposed as I was so use to being surrounded by trees.  The country side here is very beautiful with rolling hills, open fields of hay, grazing cattle and even bison close by.  Then 40km north we are back in the Canadian Shield and lakes everywhere which will be fun to explore next year.

I did managed to hang one quilt in the house so far as it was the perfect spot for it in the hallway!

And I was glad that I took the metal quilt blocks that hung on the outside of my Shack and spray painted them white before we left.   They look great on the front of the house.

  My new quilting studio is full of boxes and that will take a while to unpack and organize but it is such a great space!   There are parts to a longarm in there somewhere!

So I’m not sure when I will have something quilty to share next but I just wanted to check in and let you know that the move is going well.  We are all feeling good about our new town and the people here are very friendly and welcoming!
