The very hardest room to pack up has been my craft room. I tend to have too, too many ideas. I make a lot of piles of random supplies with big, big plans in my head. And then the piles beget more piles. I feel like it was an archeological dig down in my basement to some of the ideas I had when we moved in six years ago (or before). Anyway, in order to tie up some loose ends, I ended up sewing and cutting a lot more in the past two weeks than I had planned on.
I cut up all of the fabric for Ben's quilt and then packed it up.
I cut up some squares for a patchwork muted red, white and blue quilt. I've had this idea swimming around in my head for 3 years and I finally collected enough fabrics for it.
I had one starter block received from the 3x6 bee (mrssorrells2009 on flickr) and a stack of fabric that this block inspired.
I look forward to getting a batting and backing on that after the move.
I also dug up some quilt as you go squares from the Mother's Day retreat with crazymomquilts and I finished quilting all of those. I hope I can get some of them sewn together on the car ride.
As I've been packing, the mail has been coming in with ornaments in the Trim the Tree swap. I'm a lucky, lucky swapper this year!
Oh gosh. I'd love to chat more and show off more fabric and quilting and project pictures but I really have to get back to cleaning and painting and bubble-wrapping everything. I have big craft plans for the drive and for the first couple of weeks before the boxes arrive by moving truck. Cross your fingers that all of the knitting and hand sewing projects I have in my head will fit in our tiny little car.
