Winnings sent and House sold (hopefully)

Since September is Orange over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and Halloween is just about here, I sent Shelly a set of three FQs pictured here:

She was the winner of my recent giveaway.
I love the texture on these three, hope you can use these, Shelly. I would have sent a paper piecing pattern for a jack o' lantern, but I'm all packed up to move, and I just couldn't find it.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ (Zig Zag Stitch - capital 6) LOL
On Monday we had 2 (count them) 2 offers on our house! Unfortunately, one offer was for cash and wanted us out within 3 weeks!  I'm sorry, all that has to happen just couldn't happen in 3 weeks. The young man who was buying thought because it was cash everything would be easy. BWAHaHa! Sorry honey... He decided it was to difficult for him to get everything done in such a short time. (I still have to pack, oh, and buy a house that is 600 miles away, switch utilities out of our name, get the movers on just the right day, etc, etc. And he thought he was stressed.) So he backed out of the deal. Thank Goodness! 
Anyway, we have this other offer. It'll be 70 days... much more comfortable to accept... and we can sell to anyone else in the mean time if the offer is better. This is soooo much more comfortable.
I'm going to have to ask for help with some things... I'm really getting quite frayed at the edges. And on another front, I've volunteered to make  a couple of more ASL "I Love You" blocks.... I love paper piecing, so there should be some therapy there.
Happy Wednesday!
Hugs to you all,
