Welp, I’ve been living in KCMO for a whole month now. It flew by but it also feels like I’ve been here forever if that makes any sense.
My eldest son flew w/me to help carry-on my pets BUT my pets ended up not being able to fly w/us because I purchased hard carriers instead of soft and they were too tall to fit under the seat of the AA plane. Long story short, my sis and nephew flew them out to me a few weeks later and visited for a couple of days. It rained the entire time they were here but I still showed her around the city and introduced her to delicious burnt ends at Joe’s Kansas City.
The pets are now settled in. Moe really enjoys the big yard but Inka hasn’t ventured out yet. I’m sure she will soon.
The only thing I don’t like about the Midwest so far is the creepy, crawlin’ Charlottes. That’s what I call spiders. This cute little house must’ve been empty and untreated for several months because Charlotte’s webs were covering all the bushes and shrubs outside and all over in the garage. I promptly ordered pest control because I can’t stand creepy, crawlin’ Charlottes! I ONLY like spiders and webs as quilt designs! If you look closely at this next pic you can see Charlotte’s Web in the trees. I gotta be real careful where I walk here.
I saved setting up my sewing room until 2 days after the pest control guy came out to ensure I wouldn’t see any half-dying Charlottes trying to escape their inevitable death down in the basement.
Work is everything I knew it would be and it keeps me super busy but I have managed to bind two quilts; my Halloween Scrappy Webs and Autumn Arkansas Traveler. I had them both quilted by Linda Powell @itsallaboutthequilt (IG) before I left AZ.
Oh yeah…I found a church! I have visited several but have settled on and enjoy attending Relevant Church and I’m looking forward to starting the Priscilla Shirer’s Armor of God Bible Study next week.
Until next time, Happy Stitchin’ and God Bless!
