  • Moving, moving, moving!

    Moving, moving, moving!

    Packing, moving, cleaning, painting, unpacking. Repeat. This has been my life since last December! First I helped my mom move from a four-bedroom house to a condo. That took about six months. Then, out of the blue, it was my turn! What an unexpected blessing. My daughter and her husband closed on the house on…

  • More progress on Day 4

    More progress on Day 4

    Today we made major strides on the homeschool side of the room. The grandkids are so excited about this. And they are sure to get plenty of art supplies from grandma. And the grandgirls are plenty interested in my side of the room. This is going to be fun!

  • Day 3 of the New Year

    Day 3 of the New Year

    The third day of the New Year. Another day spent helping my mom, although I did get home a little earlier today. Still, very tired from some heavy duty work. I spent the rest of the day blowing my nose due to dust allergies. Well, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back. I…

  • Day 2 of the New Year

    Day 2 of the New Year

    Day two of the New Year. Day two of my new studio! I spent yesterday evening unpacking my main quilting fabric (prints and batiks) and putting it into the microscope cabinet. It has 30 cubbyholes. I had packed away two cubbyholes of fabric into each small size U-Haul boxes (which I numbered so I would…

  • What a wonderful way to start the New Year!

    What a wonderful way to start the New Year!

    The room is finished! The new floor is in! January 1, 2019 is move-in day for our new studio and homeschool room. I can’t wait! I think it will be so much fun to be working on my side of the room while watching my daughter homeschool her two daughters. But first I just had…

  • Room of Requirement Day 6

    Room of Requirement Day 6

    I’m tired, and I’m claiming victory! I think I have pretty much everything packed into boxes and ready to be stored away. This process took somewhat longer than I expected! I definitely forgot that I had some of that stuff. I’m thankful for my son-in-law, Eric, who has been storing this all away in his…

    Room of Requirement Day 5

    I had a few busy days since my last post. I might have been in the studio for a short time, but nothing worth writing about. Today I had a couple hours so I went in. Two year old Aliza was fast on my heels. Four year old Hazel wandered in after a bit. Aliza…

    Room of Requirement Day 4

    On Day 4 (counting only the days I can actually work in there) of packing up my studio, I wasn’t able to get in there until late in the afternoon, and my sweet 2-year-old granddaughter wanted to help! Who was I to say no? I decided an “easy” task would be to pack up the…

    Room of Requirement Day 3

    Today’s been a good day. I was able to get quite a bit done before lunch, take a break, and then continue in the afternoon. I know I’m making progress, but it’s a little scary to see all this stuff pile up and know that I still have a ways to go! Oh, my! How…

    Day 2, part 2

    I spent a couple hours packing after dinner tonight and got my beloved microscope cabinet packed! Off to bed now.
