Starting over

The contract on the house we were trying to buy kinda fizzled out. Short sales are complicated and are usually drawn out. The bank decided it wanted to review all it's short sales so we decided to back out and start over. We have found another house, put in an offer, and are waiting....again.
I have been sewing to keep my mind off the housing troubles. A new "series" is in the works and it's sweet! A custom order came in yesterday and I will have to dye some fur...hope to get to that later today.
My birthday went by last week. I celebrate quietly these days. The day before Bill & I went out and I had the most delicious white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Bill had to work on my actual b-day so I treated myself to a day of shopping then some Ben & Jerry's Phish food ice cream. All in all a nice birthday.

Happy Belated Birthday, Nancy! It's lovely that we share "our" day together.

I'm so sorry that your housing situation is back to square one--I'm sending positive thoughts in hope that it will all settle itself quickly.

Heaps of Hugs,

So sorry about your house. It was a great house. Happened to us this year too with a repo. I guess you just have to get back and search some more. Not too fun.

On a lighter note Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Nancy. So sorry to hear about the house, but maybe it was a blessing in disguise. Your next choice maybe a better one...I pray so anyway, for yours and Bill's sake.
You asked me about the bonnet...I didn't make the base, but I did cut it to shape and decorate it with the velvet flowers.
