Getting Ready to Move

Nick and I are finally getting ready to make our move to the Seattle area. Yay!! We've been talking about this for about 3 years now so we're really excited that it's finally coming. We're buying a house and getting out of California (hopefully for good). I plan to get a moving company in to help out, but I'll be doing some of the packing myself.


I've already started going through my stuff to donate. I give away clothing like you wouldn't believe! I'm also going to be destashing my fabric supply. My new sewing room will be bigger, but I still want to lighten the load. I've got lots of flannel to put in the shop, so if you're in the market, stop by soon & see what's available.


In our new house, I'll be able to properly decorate my sewing room. I can't wait to be able to paint & hang shelves at will. To get myself into the mood, I made a new cover for the ironing board. The old one was a bit tired.



This fabric is a lot nicer and I had it on hand. I think it looks a lot better now and will copliment the new room. What a fun way to destash...use what you have! haha

Now I need to get back to work. As Nick said the other day, I'm in my element. I love to be busy and I love to plan! Wish us luck on the house too, we hope to be making the offer soon.

You got yourself a pretty awesome, brown house! I wonder how long the sewing machine will be packed up? :) Good luck on the move!
