    I have been working so hard to get my business ready to open and my dh job shut down and he was offered a higher position at a plant in Austin,Tx. and he ACCEPTED! Can you believe this! All of my dreams have went up in smoke! I am in Tx now so he could look at the plant and the city. I was hoping he did not really care for it but nooooo he loves it. When we get back home we're moving. I am numb! My kids live in Killeen and is an hour away. I know no one in Austin or anywhere else in Tx.

    Relax..Austin is a wonderful city once you get used to it! They have bumper stickers that say "Keep Ausitn Weird"! It is a very hippy, groovy, village type city! And I only live 45 mins away! So maybe we can hook up and be quilting buddies or shop hop buddies! You never know!

    I do know one thing: When God shuts one door, He opens another!

    Bummer. You must be really disappointed.

    Try to look at this as a new adventure. You will meet people. Maybe you can find a house with a wonderful sewing space for you. :)

    Hopefully your business will only be on hold and you can work on it once you are settled.

    sorry to hear but you know things will work out, happy your hubby found a job, and I see above that there is another quilter that doesn't live to far from Austin so you can be quilt buddies, get to know other quilters online and I bet you can find some in the Austin, Texas area, and please get your business open up there, good luck

    what type of business were you working on getting open?

    I have moved a lot in the 39 years we have been married (Air Force and GTE) and have always looked at it as an adventure! The first thing I have done in a new city is take the phone book and look up all the fabric and craft stores, or any other particular place, map them out and go visit them. And that's the advice I gave my daughter-in-law before she married our Army son 10 years ago.

    I hope you will be able to see this the same way. And be thankful he has a job, even a better one, as in this economy, that isn't always the case. We spent 4 years in TX and there are many great places there--I hope you will be happy. Good luck!!

    What type of business were you going to open? Is it possible to open that business in Austin? I can totally understand your frustration from getting everything just-so to open it where you are and then to have to drop all of it. {{{hugs}}}

    My niece lives in Austin, it is a huge city but it's very nice.
