Stash and 31 Days!

Okay, the stash part first. I received a large parcel of stash in the mail today, here's what I got. Waxing Moon Designs "My Needle and My Floss, They Comfort Me", 28 count Lambswool linen and WDW to stitch it, Just Nan "When Barnabee Met Bella" kit that includes embellishments and the linen, Blue Ribbon Designs "Stitched With Love", 32 count Antique White Belfast linen, CC Belle Soie silks, Barbara Ana Designs "Spring Biscornu", Waxing Moon Designs "Stitching Mends The Soul", 28 count Antique Gold Country French linen, and the GAST and SS threads to stitch it, 32 count Light Mocha linen, Country Cottage Needleworks "La Boutique", 28 count Cafe Mocha linen and Kelmscott Designs "Love Scissors".

And now, the 31 days part. The countdown is on! There are 31 days until we move to Florida. For those of you who don't know me, my family is moving to Fernandina Beach,(Amelia Island) Florida the first week of June. Currently, we live in a high-rise apartment/condominium building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. There isn't any room for our two children to play and the only children in the building are babies. We are moving to a beach house with a pool and a very big backyard. There are a lot of children in the neighborhood, and the home schooling laws are less stringent than here in Pennsylvania. My husband, the computer guru, works from home and so we can go anywhere we want as long as we have an internet connection. We will be closer to my family and all-in-all this move will be good for all of us. The fact that we are moving finally sank in today when we started packing our first box. We have a lot of stuff, but luckily we are moving from a three-bedroom condo to a five bedroom house - so we will have the room to spread out. Okay well that's it from me. I am just so excited to go - can you tell?

Great stash, but lets get to the good part!!! Your move sounds fantastic! A high rise condo to beach living? What a difference for the kids to grow up and 5 bedrooms on top of that? Congrats on a great move away from the cold north too! I live in MI and I don't see us moving until we retire or the kids move somewhere south....

I love all your new stash!!

To answer your question about the water - I did it in my bathroom sink, so I'm going to guess and say it's about a couple gallons? Hope this helps, good luck! :)
