We borrowed a trailer (Thank you, Dayna!!!) and moved our furniture in a day (Thank you Brandt and Chad!!!), but we're still working on moving everything else.
My days go something like this:
*sort - pack - load stuff - transport stuff - unload stuff - make/eat supper - unpack stuff - repeat*
This is the worst possible way to move. I'd rather sort and pack in advance, and move everything in one fell swoop - preferably with someone else doing the heavy lifting. However, our experience with moving companies last summer (when we helped our son move, twice) was not good, so here we are.
Guess what we moved first??? (was there any doubt? ha!)
Even though it sat idle for a month, it pleased me to have it set up and ready to go.
Fresh off the Frame
As anticipated, I DO love having the studio directly connected to the house! Even in the midst of our (never-ending) move, I'm able to step into the studio and quilt whenever I have a few spare minutes - oh, ya!!!
My client made this for her (soon-to-be-born) grandbaby, which prompted me to add heart details in the quilting.
Pink thread on the white fabric (and vice versa) helped them be more visible.
Are We There Yet?
I'd say we are about 65% moved. Still a few basement rooms to cull, and gardening supplies/outdoor furniture to round up. And a shed to clear. (We have a dumpster in the driveway for a reason. Ha!)
Our new place is about 95% completed. Our closet organizers are not in place yet, so we are temporarily living out of suitcases and boxes. There's a tiny bit of work to finish in the basement and on the exterior of the house, but things move forward every day.
So, we aren't "there" yet, but it won't be much longer until we are completely settled!
In the meantime, I think I'll load another quilt. :)
