Moved in!

I am exhausted!

I spent most of last week moving boxes of small stuff to our new house then Friday and Saturday we had a uhaul truck and even some help from our son Brett to move the bigger furniture items.  There's still about 100 boxes to come but we'll just get 10 or 15 a day this week and try to unpack as we go.

My sewing room is a mess. It has no furniture yet until we get time for an Ikea trip,  So it's just boxes and sewing machines on the floor!  I have quilt retreat this weekend so at least I'll be able to sew whilst I'm there and give my fatigued muscles some time to regenerate.

I'm sitting in bed right now as the sun rises and this is my view:

Lol no cushions on the armchairs, no quilt on the rack and suitcases full of clothes everywhere.  Our mattress is on the floor because our bed broke recently (note to self order new bed frame sooner rather than later lol).

But as you can see Ebony doesn't care about the mess she just loves the new house and yard.  

So we are getting there slowly but it'll probably be November or December before the sewing room  is fully usable and back to being my oasis. 

This was yesterday afternoon relaxing in our new back yard with Henry the  crazy cockapoo in his favorite place on my lap. The snow will start soon but for now it's perfect weather outside, I love fall.  But i do look forward to photographing finished  quilts in this terrific backyard this winter. My computer is not set up yet so blogging may be sporadic since it's more time consuming to do on a phone or tablet  but i promise a post next week with some quilt retreat fun! 


  1. sounds like you are getting sorted slowly, so many boxes still to shift but a good idea unpacking them as soon as you bring them to the house. I am sure you will love the outside space, I would be lost without my garden but it does take time to keep on top of it which I do resent a bit Can picture your dogs tearing around and loving the space.Best of luck getting your sewing room organised like you i enjoy a visit to Ikea, think I might pop over next week it is on the bus route which is good
