This Green Hutch & We're MOVING!

We recently sold our farm.
I am completely overwhelmed with it all.
I feel good, I feel bad.
I am excited, I am sad. 

We will rent a local 5 bedroom farmhouse until the right place comes along to purchase.
It is much smaller than this place and we are going to have to put a lot of things in storage or why not just SELL?
I'm not going to feel settled until we can actually purchase and have MY OWN HOME again.
That part is going to be VERY hard for me!
I have dreams of what this right place might look like and what I am going to do with it.
I get excited thinking about designing a new kitchen! It's the kitchen that I care about most.
Probably because it seems I spend most of my time there preparing food or washing dishes given we are a family of 7!

I recently posted on facebook and instagram about selling this fabulous green hutch.
I havent really even thought it through!
the hubs told me to keep it!

YET as usual I have an overwhelming need to change things
and since I have had the opportunity to LOVE this hutch while it's been here
I also think about having the opportunity to LOVE something different in the future.
It's ironic that Miss Mustard Seed made a recent blog post about designing her future freestanding kitchen!
her plans are so similar to MINE!
I love the idea of a freestanding kitchen and my mind has been going crazy lately about it and I've been searching pinterest for ideas CONSTANTLY! cuz well, you know how we all love pinterest! 
What's even more ironic is that she included THIS GREEN HUTCH in her post!??!
So I have to ask myself DO I REALLY WANT TO SELL THIS??
Should this piece be a part of my own freestanding kitchen!?
You can read her fabulous post HERE

So anyways, big changes coming our way peeps!
Please hang in there with me during this very emotional time
I really hope to purchase and get settled into our own new place as soon as possible!
Thanks for all the support so far!

Sew many projects!

 Hey Peeps! Thought I would check in. I've been sewing and creating like crazy!
Most of my pretties arent 100% complete before I start another project! I HAVE 'SEW' MANY PROJECTS ON THE GO!??

 I just LOVE this rugged 'rustic' bag I am creating here! I love it so much I will have to make a couple more very similar and of course keep one for myself!
 All these pretty purses have either buttons or snaps to add or straps to sew on
 or hems to do!
 many still need liners. I really need to focus on getting them FINISHED! I am also sewing Christmas tree ornaments and my lavender sachets. Trying to set up a small shop at home and deal with the every day of the fam and PHEW! its crazy! We still arent into the back to school groove and mornings are really hectic!
 I was LUCKY enough to go to the Christie's Antique & Vintage Show in Dundas, Ontario and bring home some of these amazing antique linens & grainsacks. A-MAZ-ING!
 These are so beautiful that I will be cutting the one up for my daughters bed. It is overly large and I will make a twin duvet cover and pillow slips but will have plenty more for projects!
4 out of the 7 grainsacks I purchased have pour spouts!
I created this beauty last night and now just need to find the right liner and straps!!

Thanks for stopping in!! Until next time! ~mel
