shifting gears for a bit

you've probably noticed that there has not been much 
sewing or sowing here lately.

batman and i are moving into quite a complicated chapter...
real estate adventures, a career shift and lifestyle adjustments.

this space will become a shelter for my weary self.
a simple place to catch my breath.
to search for a center, even when it's a moving target. 

if all goes well, 
there will be sewing and sowing again.
(pent up sewing and sowing!)

until then, 
drop by for a little shelter of your own.


  1. I hear ya sister
    I'll be here
    just you be here too

  2. I wish you luck in this transition you are beginning to.....the rest of your life. I, too, must begin that journey very soon, but for me it means leaving a life I love but which is becoming too difficult to maintain. So I put off the inevitable as long as I can.

  3. Wish you luck and good decisions!!!!

  4. I love that your picture affirms that things are still blooming around you even as you need to focus elsewhere. No doubt these are fruits from your earlier effort - so glad they are there for you now.

  5. Oh, a beautiful header, Karen!
    It is a time of major transition and I wish you a calm sense of purpose as you and Peter shift gears and move forward. You've worked so hard to realize your dream and I pray that that everything will fall into place smoothly and easily, with the happiest of results! xo
