Moving In or Moving Out?

Our neighbors must wonder what we are up to. Today, Mr. C rented a truck. He drove it to the house and put it in the driveway. We took the dog for a walk and saw one of our neighbors who said: "Guess you have a lot of packing to do?" We nodded in agreement.

Then we got in the truck and drove to the storage facility. We were the only ones around. Our room was on the third floor so we had to use a dolly and go up a freight elevator, load it, come down, unload – several times. There was music piped into the building. It was very eerie. I have heard that they pipe music in to Chernobyl to relax the people that visit there or do work there. I did not find this  music relaxing, just annoying.

We then drove home and unloaded all the stuff. It was so good to be able to put my hands on all the stuff from my studio. I had even packed my Palm Pilot charger so I couldn’t use it all this time. I ordered the beads that I want to finish the latest quilt and hope they get here by Wednesday.

I finished the machine quilting today. And I am ready to start beading.


The little circles will be jelly fish after i finish beading them.

Tomorrow, after 9 am PST, you must visit my daughter, Stephanie’s, new online shop. She will have her wonderful stuffed critters for sale.
