The move is Done

This past month has been a blur with packing, moving and unpacking. I don't remember moving being this overwhelming and stressful.  But being 10 years older probably has something to do with it.  If it hadn't been for two of our kids, I don't know what the Big Guy and I would have done.  K and T were amazing and then some! 
I am desperately in need of my routine--knitting, quilting, cooking.

I will miss my large sewing room and settle for using the 2nd bedroom in our apartment.

I have managed to pick up a little knitting.

July's Hopes

I can't believe that I haven't posted since June 1.  My life is an endless array of boxes and plastic bins.  The final push is this week.  We move July 10.  

I have managed a little knitting and completed the Open Air Shawl.

I have been teaching a machine embroidery crazy quilting class at my LYS.  This is the first time I have tried digitizing a pattern.  I have learned a lot but still have a long way to go.  This is one of the blocks I worked on.  It needs some button, beads and charms.  The technic for this class was using ribbons and lace to embellish a seam.  I need to finish July's block and pack up my sewing room.  This month we will work on Free Standing Lace.
