I'm in the middle of a big life change! Selling my current condo and buying a bigger/nicer/newer one. Just like the Jeffersons, I'm movin' on up!!
My free time has been focused on the buying + selling + loads of paperwork needed to make this happen. I'm listing my place tomorrow, so I've been packing up all non-essential items and moving them to my storage unit. The goal is to make my place look spacious and appealing. Spacious is a relative thing, considering there is only 853 square feet total!!
Here is a photo of my sewing room from a few months ago:
And here it is today:
Finn has been helping pack!
I'm nearing the end of my packing and treated myself to a bit of sewing time last night. I thought, "if I can finish up or move some of my current projects along, it will make it easier to pack them!" =)
My Elephant Parade is slooooowly inching forward. It should almost be called the Snail Parade! I still want to re-make the blue flowers in the style of the red ones, but in the meantime, I sewed the sashings on and started assembling the rows.
One of my
neverending ongoing projects is "Little Ladies". It's a paper pieced pattern and I use all scraps. The rest of the blocks are packed (who knows in which box!!). I'm not sure how many Little Ladies I have so far (25?). Quite some time ago, I cute one of the papers up into the components and set it on my ironing board. Instead of packing the small bits of paper, I made up this girl. This fuschia fabric is part of my Cartwheel quilt and that is one of my favorite parts of the project-- each dress is a reminder of something else I've made.
I managed to enhance my stash this week with another package from Massdrop. Lizzy House, Mini Pearl Bracelet fat quarter bundle. Squee!!
Because I'm packing and moving, I've declared a moratorium on buying fabric (until I move into my new place!). Here is a sneak peek at my future sewing room (the palm tree + dragonflies are gonna go!)
