Blessed Are the Needleworkers

I took today off work to meet with BF, the realtor and the home inspector for the inspection of the house that we're buying. I did some stitching in the morning before we went over (and before making potato gnocchi to go with tonight's dinner of leftover beef stew). I worked on this:

This view is from the family room into the kitchen. I sat on the floor and stitched on Meadow Hills in the sunlight while the men fussed around in the basement with radon detectors and CO2 gauges and whatnot.

And this is the house. I discovered that one of the bedrooms has a wonderful walk-in closet with its own window--perfect for storing all kinds of crafts and needlework and fabrics and yet being able to see what I'm looking for. My sewing/stitching room is the two windows over the garage.

Oh-ho, Glenna, this is a fabulous place! Well done! Your shopping around really did pay off.
Hey, I also really like this new project you're working on. Who designed this beauty?

What a lovely house! I used to own a home with a window in the walk in closet - the closet was as large as a bathroom, and I thought it would be perfect, cute, stitching retreat (after taking out the shelving, of course)

What a nice house. You are so blessed. I noticed you are stitching "Meadow Hills". I think it will look great in your new home. I designed it. Do you have any suggestions for different designs. I'm planning my summer stitching and I have some things in the works but would always love to here what people like. Happy stitching

Love the house! Glad you had a chance to check out the stitching light ;-). Your new project is very cute so far.

Sorry, I'm a little late on reading this past week...
BUT that house is just like (I mean really) the one we sold this spring. Except it didn't have a basement....it's cute! Congrats!
