This is such a total, absolute pipe dream. Several years ago I posted about this building right here and how much it fascinated me. Every time I've seen it, I've thought how pretty it would look with quilts hung between the columns and how much fun it would be to teach classes in a dedicated place.
But...it was soon rented and has been unavailable for more than a year. When I saw it being rented, my reaction was a mix of relief (yay! I can stop wanting that building) and anger (hey, that is MY building!)
Suddenly this morning the place was empty, the cars moved, the lights off, and I can only assume it will be open either to rent or buy soon. EEP! My building is available again!
Lol. I still can't decide if I want to make a move on it or not. I've felt such a strong pull of ownership over this place for so long, but still...it's super scary to buy something this big on top of our house, car, and business expenses.
I still can't manage the huge risk that this would be. But I can definitely imagine how much fun it would be to teach and quilt in this nice space. So what is going to happen with that, how it's all going to pan out remains to be seen. If a sign goes up for sale, it might be time for another tour...that's all I'll allow myself to commit for right now at least.
So when I haven't been bouncing around in my chair with equal parts excitement and terror, I've hopped back on Duchess Reigns and stitched a few more feathers and background.
Part of the reason that building is such a welcome distraction is because all my current projects are feeling slow to the point of stuck lately. Nothing is MOVING! I'm plodding along with everything steadily, but sometimes I'd just like to tear through a project in a day and call it done.
Unfortunately that isn't an option for any of these projects, and starting something new and quick just to be able to finish it quickly is rather pointless. It would just be yet another thing to finish!
So I'm off to plod some more and dream of that building filled with beautiful quilts and humming sewing machines.
Let's go quilt,
