WIP: House Buying Cuts into Sewing Time

Pretty self explanatory blog title. Our landlords decided they needed to sell our place, and with a slightly insane rental market in Calgary we thought it would be better to buy a new place. We looked at 8 places over 4 days, put an offer in on one, and now are waiting the home inspection, etc., to be finalized. In amongst all the house shopping I did find tiny bits of time for sewing.
Project 72 - Block 3 pieces - EPP happening in the yard while kids play

10 sheets of foundation paper labeled with colour locations ready to be cut

Fabric picked to go with the foundation piecing

Half the pieces cut out for a dress for Monkey, she was 'helping' the first day so it was slow going.

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.

Looking forward to having house sale finalized and more time to work on these projects. Thanks for having a look.



  1. If you're buying a house you're doing well to get any sewing done (I like the idea of EPP outside while kids play, I'll try that one). My girl would love a dress in that fabric.

  2. Good luck with your move. You've got some beautiful fabric waiting!

  3. yes best of luck with the move and new home : )

  4. House buying and moving takes up so much time. You are doing very well with your sewing. Wishing you a smooth move!
