I am starting to get excited! Things are progressing here.
First of all, only 2 more costumes and one rose crown to finish for the school. Not bad for only having 2 weeks to get them done. At first I was told they needed 37 costumes. With changes in design and the addition of 2 more characters, it turned out to be 42 with some characters needing 2 changes of their wardrobe.
DH and I finally went to look at a couple of condos. Next up is some places in a 55+ community. Our property is sold except for the last negotiations.possession date was to be July 31, but they want it moved up to June 30. The sale was unexpected, but the buyers approached us with a good offer. Either way, I need to keep moving. DH ran a construction business before MS forced him to retire. There is 35 years of accumulation in the shop which is 30′ by 60′. It’s a never ending chore sorting and packing. The job is made more difficult by the fact we don’t know where we are moving to or how much space we will have. To say I’m stressing is putting it mildly! I have started packing the studio and next week the longarm frame comes down if it hasn’t sold before.
I did manage half an hour on my One Block Wonder and about an hour on the Lonestar quilt in the past 2 weeks. It really bothers me not getting studio time in but purging and sorting, school costumes, DH’s doctors appointments, gardening, cooking, housework and laundry all need to be done first.
The good news is the purging and sorting feels good! I was able to donate 2 large totes full of fabric, notions, needlepoint kits and wool to our local Guild for the annual fundraiser. I also decided it’s safe to get rid of my XLarge clothes since I have held steady to a Medium for over a year now. Between my closet and dresser and DH’s we have 3 large boxes to donate to the second hand stores. I have 4 boxes of unneeded kitchen pots, pans, serving dishes, etc. ready to go to the Share Shed. I can’t believe how much stuff people accumulate over the years.
More news as things progress and as soon as there is time, I will get some pictures to update the progress on my WIP’s.
