:: contractually moving ::

well, we're in contract on a new (to us) house. i'm excited and optimistic but still totally cautious and not really believing it. after the disaster back in february/march/april with two real estate deals materializing and then collapsing before our eyes, i just can't help but be tentative.

this time around, though, ought to be completely different. instead of selling the condo we're renting it out. we should have a signed lease by the weekend. because of that, we were able to make a non-contingent offer on the house here. so now all that really stands in our way is the inspection (thursday morning) and any subsequent negotiations, plus the mortgage (already pre-approved). but still. i just can't bring myself to even post a picture for you because i'm not ready to believe it until we get much closer to closing.

i will, however, post pictures of two of the quilts i'm considering making for our maybe living room. (it's all maybe for now. it's the maybe house. we may be moving. etc. etc.) the room has hardwood floors and brown walls, and all of our furniture is brown, so i'm thinking we need a shock of color and a healthy dose of white.

Good luck!!!

My vote is for the second quilt and I am soooo not a quilt person but I love that one!

(I like the second quilt. Very wavy and groovy, man.)
