July and August-End Furtling 2019
-Janine at Rainbow Hare on 2/28/2019
This is a 2-month Furtle entry as the months have blended together. I am feeling like a totally different person: hubby had skin cancer surgery, put my heart dog down, learned to love hubby's dog as an only-dog, moved 950-miles away from where I have been for the last 21-years. Lived in hotels for 2 weeks before, during, & after moved my family across the country where I drove the truck & trailer almost the length of a tractor trailer. Bought a new house long distance that I saw only once. Trusted others to move my things into the new larger house, even when the movers forgot 20% of our things the first trip. Took unexpected time off for dealing with all the above. AND finally experienced the uncertainty and fear of being in the house for 1-week when a monster hurricane, Dorian, is said to be heading for my new home and state. *Deep breath in and out*
As it's the final day of the month, let's look at what actually was accomplished!
While in the old house back in July, I finished putting together the Sunny Days in Pinkerville flimsy center:
Moved across the country and picked the green room, painted by the seller for my sewing room, except for the fact that my sewing machine is out in the Great Room so that I can spend my sewing time with hubby watching TV at night. After the stuff I drove in the truck was brought into the house, Releasing the rolled up quilt supplies from the plastic was second only to setting up the ironing board.
Then, all the rest of the sewing supplies and stuff were delivered and put in the sewing room:
The sewing room shares a Jack & Jill bathroom with Hubby's music playing room.
Since moving into the new house, I have been able to accomplish my One Monthly Goal of precision cutting Trixie from Heather Ross' panel.
And now Madame is back on her throne (Arrow's Bertha sewing cabinet) in the new home's great room. It took quite some time to wipe down every surface of the warehouse dirt.
To get the daylight lamp out, the rest of the fabric rolls were removed from plastic and leaned against the side of the sewing room's closet. I'm so happy to see them!!!
Hubby mentioned that he'd like a round/oval rug for the entry way, so I am hoping to receive and successfully make a Jelly Roll Rug with supplied from MSQC which had the 2.5" batting roll on sale.
I'm so glad to start to be able to put my hands on the fabric and supplies to sew again. It should look something like THIS:
Sorry, MA & the #ridiculouslylongFALlist committee, but I think I'll try this next.
How has your month or two gone?
