WIP (now let's get serious tally)

The time has come.  I must pack my sewing room.  AGH!  We are intending to do the actual move into the new house in Mid-November, but with three little ones I am trying to do as much packing ahead of time as possible.  And, unfortunately, the sewing room is one of the rooms I can pack up now without disrupting the girlies' lives.  But, before I begin I need to do some serious planning.  There are some projects in the works that warrant keeping Nina and my cutting board out of the packed pile a little longer...

WIPs Before Moving

Whew nice to see this list in black and white.  Scary but inspiring!  I better get on it...and in the meantime I will start packing the stash I don't need for awhile.  Ooooh imagine how fun it will be when I unpack it and it'll be like finding something new all over again!!!

I temember those days! Yuck. One word of advice? Flu shot. It kept me going when everyone was flat out. I was able to look after them ; )

Um yeah, I wisely packed my sewing room up first too. Then unpacked and re-packed it at least a million times. What a freakin nightmare! Least you are being more organised than me and actually thinking about it beforehand. xx

Yes, they all get well again! But school brings more germs, make hand sant. Yours and their best friend, it helps some. You have a heck of a list plus packing and moving yikes! Use a big black marker and mark ever box for every room. We found that helpful until we filled up the rooms. Ha ha, we moved to a smaller house. Can't wait for the LV swap to come and I to love your rainbow quilt. I think I would like to make something similar with the LV charms + my kona solid charms from pileofabric. Just need to think how to do it. Good luck with those boxes.

I do not envy you the packing and moving task, especially with little ones about.
For the repeated illnesses, dishwasher with really hot water. When I had a class full of young sp ed students we found antibacterial hand lotion and tissues to be a help--despite the fact that I hesitated to use them.
Have been wondering how the low volume swap was coming along. Looking forward to receiving those squares--and then dreaming about what I will really make, since I'm in the midst of a big project that has to come first.
