It's official!

Every thing's been confirmed and signed... we're moving! It's a mixture of excitement and panic. I have officially 13 days left to pack!

No sewing for me in the next few weeks. See the gray bin? I've overflowed two of those with fabric that I'll be giving away at the quilt guild meeting next week. Then this morning I got my guild's newsletter and the next two meetings are about scrap management and scrap busting quilts. Then there's a workshop in the middle of the month that strongly encourages you to delve into your pile of scraps to make the quilt they will teach.

Me? I'm taking the easy way out and letting my unloved scraps and fabric become somebody else's problem!! :D It's worth it to me, especially if it means that I take away the guilt of feeling like I need to put the fabric to use somehow, someday.

Next Friday we'll get a chance to tour our future home, and I certainly intend to have the camera with me. ;)

Yay! But I thought you guys already moved?? Boy am I out of the loop! Either way, I'm really happy for you guys!

Glad to hear that your new apartment came through!!!!

I must say, though, that I completely understand your dilema. My worst nightmare is that I will have to move and pack up sewing and craft supplies, half-finished items and the like - OR -find a new home for them with SOMEONE else. You have to wonder how you accumulated it all, don't ya?

Good luck with the move. I hate moving house as well, it just sucks specially when you get to see how much 'stuff' you've collected over the years!

Congratulations! How timely that you can use the guild meeting to pass on some of your fabrics to other guild members! Very generous! I'm guessing you're going to have a very busy 13 days!

Your sewing room looks like my whole house at the moment!!! Lol*

Good luck with the move...there is nothing more motivating than brand new walls to fill with quilts! :)
