Which means.... I had to pack all my fabric...
all my sewing stuff....
and store it in the crawl space.
Another sad view....
I had all this anxiety about packing my stuff away.
I had to remind myself that I will benefit from this in the long run.
You see, we have a side split house and only half a basement.
Half the house has a crawl space...full of my fabric!!!
(Well, not full.....LOL!!)
Our boys shared a room for a long time.
But as they became teenagers, this arrangement wasn't working any more.
So, we are converting our family room into two bedrooms.
One for each of the boys.
That leaves a bedroom empty upstairs.
That room will become my very own sewing room.
It means a lot of changes.
We had a sitting room on the main floor, that we didn't really use.
We only have one TV in the house and it was in the basement.
So, now the TV will be moving upstairs, to the main floor.
We will need to buy better furniture for the living room to meet our needs.
But, we will just work with what we have for now.
In the mean time, I will work on a little bit of hand sewing.
I'm actually doing applique.
I'm only doing one block of the Florabunda pattern by Erin Russek.
She blogs at One Piece at a Time.
I've been admiring her appliqued quilts for a long time.
She has great tutorials on her technique.
So, I decided to try it out with the one block.
I love doing the applique this way.
But, I'm a piecer!!!!
One block is enough for me!
