First things first

I'm settling in to my new sewing space which is right next to the kitchen (the location was suggested by the males of the household - they figured this means that I will be more likely to keep on feeding them instead of getting completely caught up in sewing and forgetting about meals. I'm not making any promises. ;o)

The great part about my set-up is that I don't have to share the space and I can have my sewing supplies in one room (finally!). I'm still organizing myself and sorting out the projects I want to complete first.
The room next to my sewing space shows only a few of the boxes left for me to deal with, but as you can see, I cleared space to get a quilt top basted. Priorities, right? LOL

Our house feels like home - now that there's sewing supplies out and a quilt top on the floor. :o)

Catching up

It's unbelievable how fast the days seem to pass. Today marks 3 weeks since we moved. Three busy weeks. I look around to see I still have plenty of unpacking to do. I find that my long hours at work don't leave me much time or energy to tackle the boxes. It sure is different from when I was a SAHM and was able to stay focused on unpacking. Getting settled in may take longer this time around, but that's okay. (Every room in the house needs further attention. Although, I will admit to having my sewing room unpacked, except for one box... ;o)

Time to start catching up with my sewing projects! Here's the last project I made before we moved from old Edith. This gift is now with my friend, Heather. She's an avid gardener - hence my choice for the lining in this bag. The floral print is actually the remnants I still had from a larger bag I made for her a couple of years back. Now she has a matching set to keep her organized. Thanks for continuing to visit me here and leave your encouraging comments. This has been such a busy season at work and with our move I find I'm short on hours in a day. I'm determined to get things smoothed out soon, so I can post more regularly as well as visit your blogs to catch up. Happy day to you!

New Home

Just like these babushka dolls, we have a new home. It's taking me some time to get us unpacked and settled, but we're very happy with our new place. What a change to be in a house that's about 30 years old (and has been well taken care of) compared to living in Edith (around a 100 years old and neglected). We're loving all the modern conveniences that we now have (like lights in every room and reliable plumbing ;o).
My sewing space is a mess at the moment, but I do have some projects underway to share soon. Stay tuned! :o)
