2 bits

Michael & I are HOMEOWNERS! We signed the papers this morning. :o) Now for the fun filled packing time, moving time, bathroom remodelling time, pining for new kitchen appliances time, waiting for furniture to arrive time, & cats adjusting to the new area time!

The second bit - Many thanks got out to "The Quilter!" In a stash reduction move on her part, I got 3 NEW to me cat fabrics. (I own about 600 different cat prints...) Two are different color ways to those who already live with me & the other was BRAND NEW to me while already having lived a long-ish life with Paula.

Stash reduction for one equals stash enhancement for another...

No cat fabrics shall ever be turned away from my home... (I have threatened to neuter some of the boy cat fabrics, but then I go and adopt others...)

I am ready to start a new cat charm quilt... (I already have one that has about 605 different cat prints. It is still one of my absloute favorite quilts, I can sit and stare at the cat prints for hours!)

I am not sure how big the second cat charm quilt will be... I guess it will tell me when it is "done."

A big congrats on the homeownership. 600 cat fabrics?!? That blows me away. Have you posted a photo of the first cat charm quilt?

I have quite a few cat prints and keep getting more but not near 600--wow!

Glad to hear that new home is a reality for you and Michael. Yes, it is work moving but more space for the two of you and those two kitty babies. I think moving is sometimes the only way someone really, really takes a crtical look at what they have accumulated and rarely use. Stay in the same place for a kadzillion number of years and then you have the situation like your grandparents--lots of stuff they cannot take with them to senior housing.

Congratulations Amy - I hope your new home is everything you want it to be. Buying a home is so exciting and so scary - all at the same time.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONSHUG from me. A new home. Your own. That's great. I know the feeling. After getting divorced in 97 I rented houses, but now at ester I bought my own. I love it. Toooooo much money, but I will manage it.

Do you realy mean that you have over 600 catprints. WOW I too love catprints, but I am nowhere having so many LOL.
I am curios what you are going to do with all the prints.

Please send me your adress an perhaps i have a catprint you do not have....probably not.....LOL

A home of your own! Now you can paint whatever color you want, put as many holes in the wall as you can, just do your own thing! It will be great fun. Congrats!

Guess I'll have to be "anonymous" too as I've tried to comment as myself 3 times already. :-(

Anyway, congratulations to you and Michael on the home purchase. I know how much you've wanted this and I'm so excited for you.

I collect chicken fabrics with the same passion that you collect cat fabrics. I am stuck for ideas on how to use them. I look forward to pictures of your cat charm quilt. Congrats on the new home purchase!
