what's going on...

Behind the scenes this is what's working...



I'm starting to pack up the sewing room.  We are moving next month.  Our big dream and all our work is finally going to pay off. We will be on a quiet gravel road amidst trees and wild life and I will have a HUGE sewing room...   We have packers and movers coming next month and they charge by weight...we figure we can take stuff every weekend and save some money.  The easiest thing to pack is my sewing room...I took two boxes last weekend and these are ready to go tomorrow.  Of course I already NEED something that I sent out last week.  lol

The sewing room is starting to look a bit bare..
all the shelves are cleared off...

all the walls are bare...

I've been reduced to radio only as I packed all my CD's..and I need a few tools to remove my thread holders and scissor hanger and my ruler rack...oh...and the radio shelf..   Then this room will be painted..a boring bland neutral.

I am already tired of packing...I can't imagine if I had to pack the whole house..  and so tomorrow I will be joining a few friends to sew....all. day. long.   Can't wait.. 


My ironing surface, sewing table and bed risers are ready...  I need to cut and pack a couple more projects and the sewing machine...


And I have been a terrible great-aunt... I have yet to see my new great nephew and hope to get there next week...I'll take dinner to make up for it...I have a great (from my daughter) chicken enchilada recipe that will travel well...

I helped move my Mom from one nursing home to another.  She did fine.

Have been trying to learn the new Facebook...BAH!  Why change something that isn't broke?

EXCITING!!! I wish you all the happiness in the world at your new home.

I think new moms appreciate a gift of dinner more than most people realize. And chicken enchiladas sound perfect!

Busy is right. You have been burning the candle at both ends (or locations) for a long time. Have fun sewing with friends.
