Emotional Rescue

Things went well with yesterday's negotiations. We spit and shook hands on a selling price, and I initialed this and signed that until it was all official. We're having a home inspection tomorrow... cringe! Think they'll notice the crack in the kitchen light cover we just put there while changing the silly lightbulb? The inspection will take 3-4 hours so I'm planning to head out to a movie and make myself sick on "buttered" popcorn. Don't even try to stop me!

I had such an emotional crash and burn this morning. If there's such a thing as seller's remorse I had an acute case of it. So I did the only thing I could possibly do to feel better... I started a new project! I decided I'd join in the Happy Home Sampler SAL that BeckySC started on her blog. Even though I'm behind on my May goals, I needed something new to take my mind off this incredibly stupid thing I've just done (haha!). All that counting and recounting proved to be just the therapy I needed! Here's my start: I haven't done a stitch-a-long in ages, so this will be fun for me. I'm already looking forward to next Thursday, and to watching everyone's progress!

Your start looks so good!

And don't make yourself sick with seller's remorse. It's a bad market and you get to move on with your life! What could be better?!

It will be okay, I'm sure of it :o) If you are in any way attached to your house, you'll have a sad feeling and that's normal. Let us know how it goes.

I think you did the right thing and your start is beautiful. I love the colors! Such a lovely design. What color fabric are you using?
