So, in just two days we’ll be out of the house. And in a mere two weeks we’ll be on a plane for England. A lot of you have already heard that we are moving to England, but aren’t sure just why…
Well, K (my wife) is a literature professor here in the middle of nowhere, and she has a fellowship at Cambridge for the year. So, we are packing up what we need and moving across the pond for the next twelve months. K is going to finish her book, Bee is going to start school, and Mr. Babbit and I will spend our days finding the best produce, pastries, and places to play.
Of course I’ll be stitching and designing as well. My lovely friends at Janome are setting me up with a machine there and I have lots of fabric on the way, along with a few WIPs already making their way across the ocean so I can hit the ground running.
We are insanely excited. We’ve spent a good deal of time over the years in the UK, and Bee loved her extended visit to England and Wales last summer. I’m looking forward to lots of time with Mr. Babbit, time I didn’t have with Bee when she was his age thanks to all of my HKPP issues. I’m also looking forward to a few of the projects I have planned, along with getting a serious jump on the next book.
Oh, and we’re really just looking forward to being there; the UK just always feels like home to us. So, there you go. We’re moving, but we’ll be back. And even though I probably shouldn’t, I am starting to work on figuring out a way go come back for Spring Market. We shall see…
