Moving on

I'm moving on, my divorce is final, I've legally changed back to my maiden name and on Friday I move into my own little rental. This has hampered the sewing though so sorry about that from a blogging perspective, but once I've unpacked and hosted a few housewarming events hopefully I shall back to sewing once again. Pennies will be tight though, so it'll be an exploration in using a lot of my existing resources (which are frankly quite plentiful!).

Here's my new home.
The garage is for the boxes of fabric and will probably never host the car.

I've actually had a fantastic time living with my parents this last 4 months. We've got on well and all enjoyed rebuilding the relationships and supporting each other. I am very blessed!

I see the blog roll is at 91, so here's a promise :-) if it gets to 100, I'll have a blog giveaway as a little thank you for the enouraging comments. Likely to be patterns and something homemade!

I wish you all the best in your new digs, Ruthie.

And now for a bit of randomness: my verification word for this post is "worst". This seemed an ill omen and I thought about clicking again to get a new word, but then I wondered whether "worst" had some more appropriate textile meaning--what happens to wool to make it worsted, perhaps? So I looked it up and learned that "worsted" is not the past tense of a verb at all, but derives from the name of a parish in Norfolk: "1250–1300; Middle English worsted ( e ), special use of Worstede Worstead ( Old English Wurthestede ), name of parish in Norfolk, England, where the cloth was made." So now we know.

It must be a relief to have some closure on that time of your life and a new home in which to explore new directions - all the best for happier times ahead.

Glad to hear you're on top of things. Your new home looks lovely. When you live alone it's easy to live cheaply and you'll have fun making your life the way you want it to be. We'll all be here to offer support along the way.
