Winding Up and Winding Down

I think we’ve finally found it!  Our sofa, I mean.  It’s been quite a search and I’m sure that  I’ve looked at at least a thousand.  Huge shops full of every possible different style.  From leather, to “classic” Belgian, from uprights to loungers and some very modern designs.  But I thought we had clinched it when my friend Lisa and I stumbled across this sofa.  Lisa modelled so we could show Axel exactly how big it is . . . 12 feet long in total (see as he is 6′ 8″ – bigger is always better) . For perspective, Lisa is as tall as I am - this photo has not been digitally manipulated
Well after we wiped always all the tears of laughter and picked ourselves up off the floor, the hunt continued.  And in perfect form, Axel settled on the very first sofa that I looked at! It’s simple and believe it or not has comfortable loose cushions.  That was the one thing I knew I wouldn’t consider.  Hah!
Axel’s now in charge of the ordering and  it should arrive just in time for my next visit in May.  So one household chore done.  Of course, with the move, came quite the list but we’re slowly ticking them off.  Am quickly painting the living room before a leave . . . a lovely “blueberry stain” color . . .
My last class in Koblenz last weekend sadly brought this teaching season to a close.  It was wonderful to see everyone this side of the pond again and we enjoyed a variety of topics from Amish to Silk Ribbon Embroidery and a classic Feather Star to Crazy Quilting.  We’re all now gearing up for their May visit to Schellebelle for a Patchwork Day in my garden and a Quilt Show which will take place at Diehl’s Hotel (Koblenz) in October.
So this is where I feel like I should be sitting on the shelf of a toy store . . . as I wind down things here, making sure I’ve left things in good order . . . I’m also starting to wind up for everything coming over there.  
I can hardly believe that by the end of this week I’ll be back Stateside!  I am really looking forward to seeing everyone.   Our skills-building block of the month meets this very weekend followed by our first “Willowtree Sisterhood” gathering on Saturday at Shawn O’Donnell’s in south Everett.  Join us from 12noon onwards to see and feel all the new products that have arrived since December plus the wonderful imports from my suitcases.
