I bought a house!

house

So I’m about to be very busy again. I just bought a house and am hoping to close on it in the next week or so. I do have some pictures of the inside but need to get them off my camera. It’s quite big at 3100 sq. feet and it’s on almost 3/4 of an acre. That probably doesn’t seem big to most of you but it’s pretty big for Anchorage. Most of the lots here are small like .17 or .2 acres. It has bedrooms for each kiddo AND a sewing room downstairs! I’ll be able to have all my stuff together again. Right now it’s sort of shoved in one room and it’s a small room at that.

And, by the way, I have started cutting out the jammies. I have two pairs for the girls cut out and I am currently tracing the size M out for my son. I can’t believe how fast they grow!

Mazel tov! I remember the day I moved into my very own house. May it be full of happy memories and dreams come true.

How wonderful for you Dawn. And for the kiddies. We other sewers had better get busy 'cause you will be making more swimmers and dresses and skirts and shirts then we can keep up with. Do the kids get to decorate their own rooms the way they like?

Nice...! Two car garage for a cozy car, a sewing room, bedrooms for the kids so toys aren't everywhere. It looks more efficient to heat. I love it and I haven't seen pictures yet.
