Hello, it’s me again.
Did you think that I had forgotten about you?
I did not.
Actually, I have really missed you and I am thrilled to be back with you.
This is the conversation that I had with each of my sewing machines as I unpacked them from their boxes and set them up in my new sewing room.
They made their cross country move over the holidays admirably with very few issues, and are now set back up and ready to start sewing again.
The sewing machines, sewing tools and notions were not the only thing to make this long move to their new home. The stash moved as well, and lets just say, I am a little more than embarrassed by the enormity of my stash of fabric. As I packed each box and prepared it for the move, I was stunned by the number of boxes I had labeled fabric.
Had I really let my stash get this big? Did I really own all this fabric?
Buying it a piece at a time, I really had not noticed just how big the stash was getting and how much fabric that I owned. The actual size of the stash was not nearly as big of a problem as the fact that there was no way of hiding the number of boxes I had loaded with fabric from the husband any longer as they were loaded into the trailer to be moved.
I thought for a brief moment about labeling some of the boxes, kitchen or bathroom, but if the husband opened one of these boxes to find fabric, it would be much worse than admitting just how much fabric I have in my stash at this point.
Luckily the husband is a great guy and he just rolled his eyes as he loaded the multitude of fabric and sewing boxes into the moving trailer. Needless to say, it took an entire trailer just to move my previous sewing rooms contents and the fabric stash. And of course I find myself once again vowing to purchase no more fabric and to just sew items from my existing stash.
The same trailer also carried the yarn stash and my crocheting supplies.
But this really only took a fairly small portion of the available room in the trailer.
Crochet hooks are just not that big and I can stuff a lot of yarn into one box.
I am very close to having my new sewing room set up with all of my sewing tools and notions in one place and ready for me to start sewing again.
And I am super excited to get back to sewing again.
Stay tuned to see some my newest creations.
Until then, sew forth and move on!
