I'm Back

Originally uploaded by handmadebymoi

Well, first I must apologize it seems like FOREVER since my last post. A lot has happened since our last conversation.

We have moved to Perroy, Switzerland. It took about two weeks for our stuff to arrive so two weeks on an air mattress was just a little uncomfortable.

We finally organized all our paper work for Switzerland...visas, insurance, banking all that fun stuff while trying to cancel all our services in France.

My husband's parents arrived three weeks ago for a visit and we explored parts of Switzerland and France (since it is so close). Switzerland reminds me of Canada a little with it's wide open spaces and lots of greenery.

We have met our neighbors, the wine makers, the cows, the horses and the donkeys. Polly (our doggie) is absolutely loving it here...no more scooters.

I really haven't done much sewing since we have moved and yes SHAME ON ME I know, but I have good reasons (which I will reveal on a later post).

So all in all things are going well.

I am in the middle of changing my store name (and don't worry I haven't forgotten about the contest - winner to be revealed soon) and updating my blogs, still working on the new website soon to be finished.

Another update to follow very soon I promise!!!

Thanks for your comment, working on another chair a the moment...
Hope you get the time to get creating in Switzerland once you have settled in.
Will keep looking for that perfect Vence house!
