It's our moving week!

Sorry for the silence on this end....it's getting close to that time...yes, we are moving this week!  I know, I know...what could have possible possessed us to move in the middle of December?  We've just had a fresh dusting of snow.  So, hopefully the movers will still show up!



I dismantled the dressform today and finally came to terms with the fact that I won't be finishing the cape until we unpack on the other side. 


I'm so excited about the move that all the usual moving chaos and hard work (not to mention that I'm in the middle of a big consulting contract on top of my normal work) will definitely all pay off.  We are so excited to be moving to Edinburgh!  We have so much planned...swing dancing classes, regular Sunday brunches out in the city, operas, plays (not to mention the 'fringe festival' every summer), FABRIC STORES, etc. etc.  It's all so exciting!  You must visit Edinburgh, if you've never been.  It's such a fantastic city!

So, it might be a bit quiet around here for the next week or two while we unpack and settle into our new flat.  I'll be sure to post some pictures of our new hometown.  I have some exciting sewing plans for 2011 and I can't wait to get started!

Happy holidays everyone--hope you have a wonderful end to 2010!  I look forward to starting a fun and exciting new year with you all!
