New Experience

I have never gone and shopped for brand new furniture. 
We aren't moving any furniture except about 4 pieces.
So the plan was to get a new bedroom set that was an actual matched set.
DH showed me one bedroom set online he liked, but I wasn't feeling it.
DDIL showed me a couple that she thought were me, hmmm, not quite - but closer.
DH, DDIL, DYS, Devine Miss M and I went to "Rooms To Go", a couple days ago.
After walking through the entire store, "Success"!
DYS and I spotted this set and both thought and said, "Wow, is that nice or what!" 
We found the rest of the gang and it was unanimous. 
And the winner is the Darlington! All the yard sale money has gone here.
After a month of yard sales and a very very long drive this is where you will find me for a good long nap!
Then I need to make a new quilt for the new bed!  Hmmm, so many patterns.

Stash Sale

Wow! The days they are a ticking away, getting closer to moving day!   My "Stash Sale" is scheduled for March 24 - 26.
I have a 2 story studio that is packed with "stuff". My son has an itemised list of what is going and how many square inches it is!  He keeps saying, I have to downsize more and more to fit in the truck we are renting.  BP is going nuts! Stomach is tied in knots, can't eat or sleep - so the blood sugar has gone nuts with the BP. Oh, well at least the BP will not be lonely, going nuts. "I hate this type of successful diet", I feel like crap!
My biggest stresser is finding a buyer for my quilting machine, so far only one nibble out of 5 or 6 quilt guilds in the area.  Everybody wants a "new Cadillac (computerized long-arm), not a used Buick (pantograph Mid-arm) ".  I would have liked the Cadillac, but didn't have $20,000 to spend; so I was happy with a Buick for a few hundred. 
Oh well back to sorting and packing!
Hmmm! I wonder which blogger might like this bundle of fabric?
