Here was the moving truck, pulled up to the previous home. All went well, EXCEPT the truck they brought was way too small. They had to make 3 trips between houses to get everything moved. !!!!!!!!
It was a very long day, but the movers were very careful and that was nice. Whew! So glad that is over!

Here I am a day or so later, sitting on the back porch, waiting for Hubby to finish doing something. No, we haven't moved in yet. The previous owner left the outdoor furniture for us though, so I do have a place to sit.
The carpet was pulled out in the upstairs and new wood floors have already been installed. A painter is starting today to paint the rooms upstairs and do some touch up work throughout the house. We already have a few TV's there. Internet is up and running. And there are two beds already made up. Even my sewing machines are already there, tucked away somewhere.
The big move is next week, but we are taking a few small things over here and there. This is the EASIEST move we've ever had. And that is good. Local moves from one house, straight to another, are pretty easy.
I'll get back to sewing very soon, I'm sure. Can't wait to set up my new sewing room. It will be really nice!
Happy Fall to all!

I got very little sewing done this week as we have continued to prepare our house to sell. I did cross stitch a bit one day - I'm afraid I'm going to be behind my schedule on Anniversaries of the Heart. I'm not near finished on the August block and September is coming fast. That's okay.
I did go to a guild class on Saturday. I'm so glad I took the time to go! We learned to make WIP (Work In Progress) bags, and as you can see I put mine to work immediately. It's storing the Eye Spy blocks until I have a minute to sew them together. Yes, I still need to make several more blocks.
We also learned to make large tote bags from used animal food bags - those big 20 or 50 pounds bags. I can't put my hands on mine at the moment or I'd share a photo.
I would like to make more of both of these types of bags - both are easy and don't take long.
We have another busy week ahead. Our current home will be photographed for the listing this week and a house cleaner will come and do her thing. And then we just hope it sells fast.
All is well though. I think the worst part of moving is getting the current house ready for sale. And now that part is complete - yay! I'm not worried about the packing - we scored some free moving boxes over the weekend from someone who had just moved. We have them tucked away in a storage unit along with the many things we cleared out of our house before the showings begin.
I hope to fit in more sewing this week - I'll keep you posted on that! Enjoy your week!
