Hello Everyone,

As I near the big move this week, I have been pondering lots of things.  One of them being that I really feel like I haven't sewn or created a thing in the past week or so.  It feels like something is missing... emptiness.  Grant it, I have plenty to keep me busy with the move and it is definitely beginning to stress me out somewhat.


In a way, I wish I had a magic wand and could just wave it and everything related to the move would be done... POOF!  DONE!  Ahh... but that is not the case.  I had to disassemble my long arm and now I have to pack up my only sewing machine that has been sitting out unused for 2 weeks.  And, it won't be used again until the movers make it to our new place in AZ somewhere between the 21st and 25th of this month.

My quilt inspectors are missing the sewing too! Will I make it without going nuts?? Have any of you experience this before?? I just don't know.  I am sure all will be okay, but I really want to stitch something.  All my fabric has been packed up, threads, tools... you name it all packed.

Now mind you, I did realize this was going to happen and I thought I mentally prepared myself for it.  I guess for the most part I am prepared and am looking to the positive on the other side.  But for me, as I am sure for many of you, sewing is a stress reliever or relaxer.  I could use that at the moment.

As tomorrow approaches and we take our kitties on the flight of their lives, please send some good thoughts and prayers my way for the safety of my kitties and cheers to when I can begin sewing again!!!  Stay tuned for more on this journey!

Until Next Time...
