Walking not sewing

Hi everyone

I am starting to see the number of unpacked boxes reduce, but it will be a little longer before they are all unpacked I am sure.

I have managed to set up my sewing machine and serger, and did do a tiny utility type project on Wednesday night, but that was it really.

Friday my daughter and granddaughter, Dad and Bentley all arrived to spend the weekend with us, and we just had to take Bentley and Lilly for a lovely walk.

As you can see from the pictures here, I am loving my new home.  I was greeted by the most beautiful sunrise Friday morning - the photo was taken from my bedroom window.  Later in the afternoon we took Bentley for a walk along the river - even Lilly enjoyed her time on the beach.

My D Mike was testing out his new toy and managed to get the lawn cut between rain showers.

This morning was one of those glorious sunny days that meant we had to go for another walk.  This time it was just my D Mike and Bentley, who by the way thinks he is on his holidays every time he comes.  This is all at the bottom of our garden and is a bird and wildlife haven.

I am starting to get sewing withdrawal symptoms now and I'll not be back to do any sewing until Thursday evening but I'll only have until Sunday morning to do any quick sewing before my D Mike and I take our long-awaited honeymoon.

I hope you enjoy my pictures and are having fun sewing.

Catch you later..................

Coming up for air

Hi everyone

I am pleased to report that I have now moved house but it has been hard work, and I still have tons to unpack and find homes for everything.  This was not just the content of my house but my D Mike's too.

I decided to make a start on my sewing room early this morning as you can see below not looking too bad, however

I still have quite a bit to do.........................

but, when I finish, this is the view I will see when I am sitting a my sewing table, so well worth the effort.

Ok, must get on with some work too.....Catch you later..................

Still here and packing

Hi everyone, just to let you know I am still alive and still packing.  I am slowing running out of space in the house due to the ever growing pile of boxes accumulating in various rooms in the    house. 

All I can say to fellow sewers out there, if you are planning a move, and you have been in the same house for 15+ years then make sure you factor in enough time.  I am trying to be good and not just throw everything into the boxes on the assumption that I will sort through it when I unpack.  You know and I know that is unlikely to happen, so I am sorting, through everything including paperwork, clothes, food cupboards etc and discarding anything I don't need or want, and will aim to take a 2nd look at everything when I unpack too.

Sadly I had to pull out of the Deepika (PR) meet up in London on Sunday because I only have the weekend just passed and next weekend to finish everything.  I was really glad I didn't go, to add to my busy schedule, I have caught my DH cold too.

My only sewing related fixture between now and moving is the pleasure of meeting up with Sigrid next Tuesday evening when I have to fly to the Netherlands for work.  When I return on the Wednesday night I have only ONE DAY to finalise all the packing.

Thats all from me for a while.  I hope you are all sewing like mad.

Catch you later...............
