Bohemian Rhapsody and The Big Ba-Nilla
You might have noticed that I've been MIA again. This roller-coaster-ride of selling and buying a home has just been unbelievable at times. I almost hate to write any of this down; but, today we finally came to an agreement on a home to purchase. It ain't over 'til it's over, but we should close on both homes the first week in March. Of course, we were 12 days from closing before... when it tanked... so, your guess is as good as mine. At any rate, I'm taking a breather this afternoon.
I have finished the mixed stripey blanket a.k.a. Bohemian Rhapsody. I love its big snuggly-ness! The hardest part was the edging... I'll share more on that later, if anyone is interested.
Then, before I was even done with the blanket... I saw this wonderful flower on Lucy of Attic 24. It is just too much fun!! It will be a pillow when it is finished.
I'm seriously noticing a color scheme starting to appear. I ordered this beautiful bracelet from Sandy at Faith Hope and Love. She has done such beautiful work! And, her customer service is amazing. You might want to hop on by; she is having a 14% off Valentine's Sale AND a giveaway!! I'm just sayin'.
Anyway, that color scheme... we are gonna need it! Or something!! This is the possible future home... we call it The Big Ba-Nilla (vanilla) for obvious reasons. Where every square inch of Tallulah, The Brick Street Bungalow, oozes character... the Big Ba-Nilla is an abyss... of none.
My brain is whirling away though... It is going to be a challenge to breathe some life into this one.
But first, I could use some prayers that we make it through both closings... After that last deal, I'm feeling very anxious... and since buying my first home at 19, I've NEVER felt this way... it was always just exciting. A little scary sometimes, but exciting! This is not exciting. It is stressful.
Once we've crossed that bridge... the CPR will begin. ;)

May your visions become clear...
