Just a quick note...

This has not been fun. We moved on Christmas Day, well sort of. We still have one load to pick up from the garage and take to storage. I feel like a hoarder! The furniture is lost under boxes that reach over our heads. I don't even know where to begin. I have one pile of 10 boxes for goodwill and one pile that will have to go to storage...when the weather clears up that is. Never try moving a 3 story house with a basement, garage and potting shed into a small condo!  We had to rent 2 storage spaces but as soon as the sun shines and the temp is over of those spaces is going to be empty pretty fast!

As I opened boxes I decided I have the memories of all the large family dinners so why do I drag all the fancy glass ware around for years when there is only the 2 of us left? Linens, table cloths, and at least 3 dozen new towels. It will take years to use them. I am beginning to regret buying food by the case when it's on sale. When I am finished giving away all this stuff I want to be left with my sewing machines and sewing items...that take's up a full room by themselves, a room I don't have. I might store some dolls and houses for a while until I feel okay with letting them go but all the rest of this life time of stuff must go!

I saw my new machine behind a mountain of boxes. I haven't even opened it yet and it could be weeks until I clear that area of the living room. I'm sort of bummed out with this move. I just don't know where to begin or if I'll ever get through it all. So my posts might be spaced out for a while. I'll be back from time to time and I hope each time I post I can report some good progress!

This is the space I have to work with...wish me luck!

Take it one box at a time, and as soon as you have out exactly what you need, open your machine and have sewing therapy!
I hope to get down to see you as soon as the weather gets better, maybe March or April.

Warm thoughts from me to you, my friend. I'm with the other commenter.....get that machine out and sew for awhile...then open a box and sort through it. Do the same the next day and before you know'll have a quilt top and not more boxes!!
