Happy Friday

It finally feels like Autumn today. The sun is out, the sky is blue, the weather is right and there is a breeze. What a perfect beginning of the weekend.

Some leaves cut from wool - fabric, felt and felted sweaters. A wool branch and pinecone made by Stephanie. All will be a part of the Autumn decorating.

The branch reminds me I need to go look for one this weekend to complete a project. Perhaps we will make time for a fun outdoor activity this weekend. It would certainly be nice to take a break for a few hours as we are completely overwhelmed with the house hunting/selling. It's very stressful and it seems we need a contract on our condo before we will be taken seriously by a seller. We have lost out on a few houses because of this reason. Our third open house is this Sunday. We are attempting to sell ourselves. Keep your fingers crossed for us as I really want to be moved in by December. It being October makes it seem less likely but there is a glimmer of hope.

Lucky you! Able to snag a Stephanie twig and pinecone and then having the where-with-all to accessorize it so well!

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you're able to sell your place quick. That's awful to hear that people whose house you've wanted to buy don't want to deal with you until you've sold your place. They're not amenable to you signing a contract 'contingent on sale' of your place? Do you have family you could stay with if you sell your place but don't find your dream house right away? I know that in itself can be stressful but it might help out if your between places a month or two. Sending good thoughts your way the the stressful situation resolves itself quickly. Very cute leaves you made to accompany the pinecone and branch.
