Sew Happy Thoughts…

quilting,sewing, bassett hounds and other thoughts

Time really does fly.

I had every intention of devoting more time to my blog, but alas things (life) made that difficult.  Now we are in the process of moving out of state!  It is indeed a good thing-alot of new quilt shops to explore, once we get settled anyway.

It is taking me F O R E V E R to pack up my fabric.  I am enjoying seeing fabric I had purchased long ago and forgotten about.  Therefore each piece, whether it is a smallish scrap or the entire bolt I had to have, must be admired and refolded.  I am trying to keep the colors together in each box but that is more challenging than I had anticipated.  I have been supporting the quilt shops for quite a few years and my collection shows it!  I have only cleared off 3 of my shelves and have 5 more to go.

I have also attempted to begin the process of packing up my extensive magazine library.  I feel it is my duty to look at the marked pages. There were many pages labeled though looking through them I have no idea what I was thinking! I take the post it off the page and put the magazine in the box.  I had planned on packing all the Quilter’s Newsletters together, then all Quilter’s Worlds together, American Patchwork and so on. You get the idea. But that is not happening either.

That’s all for now,  I have many more boxes calling my name…..
