We Are Finally Here !!!!

We arrived at our new home in Ft. Myers Beach, FL a few days later than expected since
we had to wait for Hurricane Sandy to pass so we would be able to drive the 1200 mile
trip from Pennsylvania.

It will take us a while to get settled in and put everything in its place as we purchased
a small house and need to find places to put all of our stuff....LOL.

I know we are going to love it here....

Blog Name Change

Since we will be moving to Ft. Myers Beach, FL in less than a month, I have changed my blog name to "Pelican Key".  Churchville Lane was named for my blog since we lived in Churchville, PA.  (very unique LOL)
Now since we are moving, I have decided to change the blog name that will be more fitting to our new address.  Pelican Key it is since there are so many pelicans down on the beach and in our surrounding areas and I actually have really taken quite a liking to them.

Packing, Selling, Moving

I haven't posted much lately.  We sold our home in Churchville, PA (hence the blog name) in July and we have been busy packing and downsizing as we are moving into a much smaller home.  We had a moving sale this past weekend and most of your belongings were sold with the exception of my DR table and chairs and our kitchen set.  We could not sell the kitchen set as we have nothing to sit on or eat off of.

We are moving to Ft. Myers Beach, FL.  Once there and settled in, I hope to get back to quilting and sewing.  I really miss it as I have my sewing machines packed up and in storage.

We are moving November 1.  It takes us 2 nights and 3 days to do the trip as we have our Westie, Molly, in the backseat.  She is such a great traveller.

Seahorse Pillow

I wanted to make a pillow to coordinate with my teal and beige seashell bedspread...
this is what I worked with

I found a clipart that I cut out...adhered it to Heat N Bond-Lite....I was not
too happy with the Heat N Bond...It did not really adhere well to the fabric....
What I wanted to do was iron the seahorse on the fabric and then stitch around
the applique....I used a burlap-like fabric for the pillow and a batik for the seahorse...Instead of stitching around the applique I applied Tulip Slick, a
dimensional fabric paint that secured the edges to the fabric.....
This is the finished pillow....
