A stash diet!!!
I figured that while I still have lots of enthusiasm and energy, I’d start packing up my studio. Although I’m no where near finished, I have managed to pack all my fabric and folks…it’s major confession time…
I think I have enough fabric to open a small shop! Yikes! If I am still quilting by the time I reach 100, I’ll probably still have some fabric left over. Is there a group called Fabrics Anonymous in Nova Scotia because I think I need help? *wink*
The hoosier is empty.
The second cupboard is also empty…
And I’m working on the third and final one.
And I haven’t even started with the bins of wool. Gulp! By the time the packing is over, I think I’ll be drowning in a sea of boxes.
And the boxes that you’re seeing here contain only fabric and batting. Yikes!
Our house is in a total state of disarray which I am NOT used to and it’s making me crazy. But I keep on telling myself that it’ll all be over in just five short weeks and I’m refusing to allow myself to even think about the unpacking at the other end.
The moving company rep is stopping by later this morning to drop off more boxes and tissue which we’ll need in order to pack the breakables. I’ve set goals for myself and I hope to have my studio completely disassembled and packed up by the end of tomorrow. Wish me luck!
I don’t know about you all but when I’m under a lot of stress, my creative juices completely shut down. Needless to say that since the packing started, I haven’t been designing, sewing or even stitching for that matter. However, every time I pick up something to place in a box that either I’ve made or that I received as a gift, a warm and fuzzy feeling comes over me which helps to keep things in perspective and get on with the task at hand.
To take my mind off the packing…if only for a few brief moments…I’d like to share with you something that I designed and made just a few short weeks ago.
This is my “Wool Crazy Sampler Pincushion”. Keep an eye out here because as soon as I can free up some time, you just never know what my next post will be about. *wink*
The boxes are calling…
