I don’t have a lot of sewing or quilting to share this week but I did get the pillow covers finished from last week…woohoo!
I also ordered a pack of 10″ Karat Mini-Jewels Batiks to make a few more! But that will have to wait until I get my sewing room setup in the new place… speaking of…
The rest of my time this week has been spent packing and recovering from packing – ha! Geez, it’s been over 13 years since we last moved – I’d forgotten how back-breaking and exhausting it is!!! I keep calling our house in Myrtle Beach our ‘forever’ home – I sure hope so cuz I don’t think I can do this again!
The house is in a constant state of disarray as I move from room to room packing up what we don’t absolutely need over the next two weeks. We’ll be renting a truck late next week to take all the packed boxes down and the following week we’ll be hiring movers for the rest (DH thought it would be more economical this way…ugh). It sounds good in theory and it looks good on paper – but – when it comes to doing the physical labor, it is overwhelming.
If you’re planning to move anytime soon, my biggest tip at the moment is to take pictures of anything you’ll want or need to replicate, put back together or plug back in. This includes the obvious electronics (TV, computer, etc) but I’ve even captured pictures of the inside of my frig so I can try to replicate how I arrange stuff in the new frig – ha!! It’s amazing how foreign a new place can feel so hopefully this helps me get comfortable more quickly.
That’s all for now…have a great rest of your weekend 😀
