Cyra ~ reflecting on the week

I have been doing just a little bit of stitching - honest.
No photos though as I've lost misplaced my camera usb plug I really hope I haven't accidentally packed it away and sent it to our storage place.

Sorry I missed being here last week, phew what a week. Still packing, packing, packing, and meetings with solicitor, accountant and bank account adviser.
When will it all end? I am so looking forward to going, and relaxing, and sitting in the sun and just stitching full-time. 

Tony was down at our our new place for a couple of days last week sorting 'stuff' out. He says it is soooo quiet there he thinks he might get bored. Not me though, I'm so looking forward to the peace and tranquility. I shall be lost in my own world there, far from the madding crowds (and maddening).

My Purple Crazy quilt block has progressed a bit, and has some of my usual unique seam treatments. I have packed away my sewing machine and fabrics and most of my embroidery threads now. I just have two small baskets with threads in left out by my armchair now. One is the purple threads for my current cq block, and the other is the next colourway (as yet a secret) for the next cq block. I have also stitched the naked block for the next one, as all the fabric has gone into storage now as well, and I needed to have the next block ready for stitching when I finish the purple block.
Just a small case of hand sewing tools, along with the threads, are all that remains in the house now.

My office is packed up (equipment, paperwork, files etc.). My craft room is packed up and all in storage. Most of our clothes have gone, unnecessary furniture has gone. TV & lounge suite are about to be gone. All the cupboards except one are packed and gone.
The house is looking quite bare now.
Roll on November.

It sounds as though you are in the midst of packing a lot of things! Your usb cable was probably one. I just take my SD disk out and put it directly in the computer, but I know not all cameras have that capability. Sometimes you just have to focus on what's most important.

Well the peace & quiet sounds wonderful and I bet you will appreciate it after all the packing.

Packing is such a bother.

I would miss my stuff if it was mostly packed away. I'm sure you're looking forward to being set up in your new house for many reasons, including having your supplies at hand.

Lol, Barbara, I don't have another house to move into. We are having a bit of an adventure when we leave the farm. Our other place is just bare land (off-grid) and a caravan. My 'stuff' will stay in boxes for a year or so, until we decide what we want to do and where we want to build. Meanwhile we will play at being hippies/gypsies/boho's and have some fun.
I'm sure I will sneak a few things out of the boxes before too long though.

After all the madness of packing, peace, quiet, and tranquility will be a wonderful antidote. It will be a wonderful place for meditative stitching.
