All moved in...


YAY! We are all moved in.  We moved on Wednesday and got our internet set up the next day (surprisingly).  However, they did the instillation wrong and had to come back on the Friday--but all in all, still loads faster than the 20 days it took from our last move.

I'm happy to say that I've also began setting up my sewing room.  We had the movers but all the boxes into the living room.  I was happy to see my sewing machine and tailor's dummy arrive first (I got the fun job of being at the new place while David did the much harder job of overseeing the move from the old place).  Pretty soon though boxes and furniture were being piled into the room.  Finally, there was an entire room of stuff between me and my sewing machine!  ACK!  Well, I don't know a better incentive for unpacking and moving boxes than that :)

So now I have both sewing machines (I have the Singer 15k above and a Singer 6136 which I use more) and most importantly both power cords accounted for!

One thing I love about moving is being able to go through everything!  I spent some lovely time unpacking my fabric stash.
It helped me to think through what I have for summer sewing and also what colours should be in my Autumn/Winter sewing colour palette!!

Another interesting fact:  All of my personal possessions fit into 16 boxes.  Of those, 11 are sewing-related!  So that means nearly 70% of what I own is sewing related (including me-made clothes).  Crazy but fun!

In other news, I took the week off of sewing.  The lovely Kazz the Spazz stood in for me on the Sew Weekly.  If you haven't check out Kazz's blog then you are missing out! She really inspires me with her creativity for all the challenges and she takes such fun photos! Check out her post on the Sew Weekly and also her blog.

Looking forward to this next week's challenge: an outfit inspired by an Alfred Hitchcock movie...oooohhh! That's going to be fun!

    I love going through my stash and seeing all of the beautiful material and refocusing my plans for each of them! It makes me happy!

    BTW, that material on the top of your pile is to die for! What have you got planned for that gorgeous one?

  13. Like to see you've got your priorities sorted with unpacking, sod the kettle and tea bags, where's the fabric and sewing machine! ;) I'd hate to move any time soon as still trying to get my sewing room organised and I've lived here 4 years and only half of that I've been sewing! hehe!

  14. I have always said I think I was born with gypsy dust on the bottom of my feet, I enjoy moving as well. LOL. Though yes its a lot of work.

    Ummm I could not fit all my sewing stuff in 16 boxes LOL. But I would have to say most of what I what I would call my personal belongings are sewing related as well.

    Your machine is very pretty!

  17. Glad your all moved in. There were a few years there where every time I finished unpacking the last box we were moving again. I think we're here for a while which would be great if could figure out a permanent sewing space.

  19. I'm impressed about 16 boxes taking all your personal possessions, you're clearly not a hoarder, sadly I am, but I'm trying to work on it ha ha!

    Glad you're in and settling down

  22. So glad your move went well. Nothing like a move to sort through what you have, all the more reason to decide what else you need!
