Yes that's right I'm having withdrawals, sewing, stitching withdrawals. This packing doesn't leave any time for stitching, plus by the end of the day my brain is complete and utter mush. Although I did manage to put a few stitches into my applique last night, and I'm sure this wall hanging is going to take so much time, at least a year or so, all those tiny leaves and teeny weeny berries. I'm wondering if I've bitten off more than I can chew with this project.
I picked up a magazine over the weekend, I can't even tell you which one it was, cause it's packed already, but it had a lovely Autumn quilt/table topper in it that I fell in love with. I usually don't lean towards greens/browns/oranges but this little quilt just spoke to me and perhaps because it was done in such subtle shades, it didn't scream NO...... So once the move is over with I'll be shopping for the fabrics. It would be so nice to have something that says Autumn in the house and this one says just that.
I have most of the packing done, just need to do the rest of the kitchen today and the back porch and that's the packing done, except for the last minute things that we're still using. We're down to eating off plastic plates.......
Now comes the cleaning, which shouldn't take too long and then hopefully I can have Thursday to relax a little, although I doubt that, that will happen. I'm sure I'll find something else that needs doing.
I've been informed by the water company that they won't turn the water on unless there's someone at the house. So Thursday evening we'll pick up the keys, and take as much as we can fit into the van over to the new house, so that I have something to do while waiting for the water man on Friday. I'm just hoping that DH doesn't have a 3am start, as he'll be dropping me off on his way to work. Oh the joys of not holding a US drivers license.... I'll spend the day unpacking the kitchen and cleaning out cupboards so we can at least have a meal Saturday after the move, clean and have the bathroom set up, so we can shower and have the fresh linen ready to go onto the bed, so we can sleep that night, and probably go through and clean all the windows. My plan is to have every single box unpacked by Tuesday, so that I can enjoy the rest of the week, probably after collapsing in my chair for the first couple of days.
We've had people from church offer to help us with the move on Saturday, what a blessing and a relief, as I know I wouldn't be any help at all to DH, plus he procrastinates so much, it would be dark before we made the first trip.....
Even though I don't have the time or the brain power to stitch I'm enjoying reading your blogs and seeing what your doing. I hope to be back blogging on a regular basis next week.
Happy Stitching, and thanks for all the lovely comments. I'll get back to regular replies next week.
