Moving Down the Road

 Down the driveway and on our way from St. Martins.

 outside Saint John

Driving through Fredericton

Arrived  and unloading into the shed

Happy we had our 4 cds. of  fire wood stacked and dry for the winter

 Here's John with  another couple loads in our "Beverly Hillbillies" moving trailer

Well. here we are. At our little old house.  Hope we don't have to do that again, ever. Huge, Huge job.
I am ready to stay in one place for the rest of my life!!!!!!

It has taken a while to sort through things and it is still an ongoing task.. and it will be for a while. trust me. 
I did manage to carve out a little niche to carry on making jewelry and sending it out. It was a almost a pleasure to hide away in the studio and not look at the stacks of boxes and belongings piled up to the ceiling around the little house.  still lots of sorting to do, but a lot has been purged and given away in the last month. Whew!  
Still, because we chose a house that has been and will be, a project, for a while yet, we have more things to finish up before the winter.  so carry on, we will, till we're done.

John is hankering to get his woodworking tools out of his future painting studio.  

But to finish off for now.... Here's a few designs we did this summer.
