The mover is coming in two weeks.


I knew once things started happening, it would go fast. We are arranging for the bulk of our things to be shipped out in a couple of weeks. We will probably have to send a second truck later on but most will go, this time. We'll be batching it for the next couple of months.

I have a ton of things still to do to shut down my practice and we are already shifting our bank accounts, preparing to set up phone service and internet, getting the house on the market, etc., etc.

I'm planning to ship out the longarm so I need to finish what is on the frame and pack away most of my fabric. That will be hard. I'll leave out my Janome, a rotary cutter, thread, scissors, GLUE STICK, iron, small rotary cutter mat, my Sylvia's bridal quilts book and enough fabric to work on some of my bright Sylvia's.

I am so excited.

Here is something I am thinking of doing with my Civil War Sylvias.

Goodness that is fast!!

I hope your move goes smoothly and you are comfortably back in Oklahoma well before Christmas.

I like your idea with your Civil War Sylvias.

I feel the excitement!
Happy and Safe Moving.

The Civil War Sylvias layout is sure pretty.

Such wonderful news. I know just what it feels like to be told you can go home.

All the stress of moving and getting settled again is a right royal pain but just stay focused on what you will have at the end, good luck!
