Townhouse Homestead Tuesday

Well it's been a while and to say we've been busy is an understatement. Wow, how the time is flying. My daughter has gone from dreaming, to looking, to making an offer, to almost having the purchase of a home completed. In about three weeks we may have the keys and so far we haven't really hit any snags so here's hoping. While she waits and collects all the paper work we continue with the packing and we are beginning to feel like we live in a storage unit, but we will be ready when the time comes.

This is the view out the kitchen window. The house sits on .51 acres and as you see next to the shed there is a plot cut that has been a garden. We don't know about the condition and we won't until we can get moved and can hopefully bring it back to life.

We will not know what kind of trees those are until we see them blossom and we're hoping maybe they are fruit trees. As you can see I have my tomatoes and peppers started so if the possibility to get them in the ground happens I'll be ready and hopefully they'll be strong enough to transplant.

This is a pot of every kind of vegetable soup. I just went through the refrigerator and freezer and put the fixings to simmer. We are using what we have on hand so it's less to move, but I have to remember that there are only the two of us and this is a one gallon pot. 

Peeps Soap

My daughter needed one package of bias tape at Joann's fabric, but like most trips she comes home with more. In this instance it was a silicon baking pan in the shape of peeps. 60% off and I knew it was coming home. This is peeps soap. She enjoys making soap as gifts and she just couldn't resist. 

I on the other hand have been taking time from the hustle to finish some sewing projects so scraps can be moved along and started a new quilt. It is a bright colored quilt and it has taken me so long to decide what pattern if any to use. The foral fabric is reclaimed sheets. I have incorporated color blocks, folded fabric pinwheels, yoyo's, log cabin, and strips. This quilt was intended to be used in my dream camper or for glamping, but that may not happen for a while and it is brightening up my days to know it's finally being built. So there you have it and that's what's been going on here at the townhouse. Thank you for stopping by for a visit and have a wonderful week.
