Wow, it's back to the real world, for sure! Monday rolled around and I really hit the ground running - we had an appointment set up to have the new house measured for carpeting and that turned out to be 8 o'clock! So an early start, then I went over to take care of the grands for a few hours while my daughter went to a meeting. That was a lot of fun, as I had definitely missed my nana time while we were away. Then it was back to the house to start packing again!
On this cruise, for the first time we had a balcony, and we got to enjoy beautiful sunrises (on the way out) and sunsets (on the way back).
And guess what? It appears you can find quilt-y inspiration anywhere - this was on the side of a building in Miami, so of course, I had to take a picture of it for future reference!
And now for this week's goals....
1. Pull together fabrics and pattern for a gift quilt.
3. Pack some more.
4. Pack even more.
5. Haul all the stuff I packed to the storage unit.
6. Drop off stuff I didn't feel like packing at Goodwill.
7. Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
Are we sensing a theme here? I wish I had time to sew (and I really need to work on that gift quilt if time allows!) but packing has to take priority. Living thirteen years in a house means you accumulate a lot of junk, and it needs to be gone through completely before we move to the new house!
I did spend some time yesterday packing, and made some serious headway! I emptied out these three china cabinets...
...with the exception of that bottom platter, which is so large it may need to travel in my lap! No box was available that was large enough to hold it. The yield from that afternoon of packing?
Nineteen boxes that now need to be loaded up in the truck and hauled to the storage unit. It was really nice to make some progress that is highly visible - my husband was stunned when he got home!
So since it appears that I'm going to have to rely on all of you to get my quilt-y sewing fix this week, the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
