What's in my Trunk?



What's in those bags??? Fabric! Yesterday a friend went with me to our storage unit. We bagged up some of my fabric - yes, I have a LOT of fabric - to bring to the cottage. Soon I'll be sorting, pressing, and cutting up this load into strips and squares. I'll give the tiny scraps to a friend who can use them for an animal charity - she makes pet beds and stuffs them with little scraps of batting and fabric.

I'm actually looking forward to diving into this mess! Creating organization from chaos will be nice. I won't be starting this today, but soon, I hope.

Yesterday afternoon I went with hubby on my first hike here in our new neighborhood. The trails are neat, with the ground covered in crushed brick. We walked a couple of miles with the dogs. The humidity was fierce, but I'll get acclimated soon.

This morning I'm trimming a friend's quilt and getting it ready to bind for her. And I hope to unpack a box and hang a shower curtain rod.  Making progress, slowing but surely.

Have a great day!!!

  1. Sounds nice, Julia. Humidity always wears me out, but it's as you say - one gets use to it - use to live in Houston - which I found out was nice compared to NJ in the summer. ...from dry So Cal.
