WIP - What Progress?

My most important projects at the moment are flat hunting, the logistics of the move, tons of letters announcing my name change, insurance matters, and, not to be neglected, taking care of my health which isn't taking the stress too well. Meaning I'm on the verge of ill all the time and still trying to get things done. Less than ideal but the way it is. Meaning I've not sewn since the 20th. Since before the wedding. Meaning I've got absolutely nothing to show you. No progress on the Viking quilt. Not even a few more hexies. I didn't feel like it in the evenings. Not one bit. I've not even had it in me to iron my skirts and take a few pics but I promise to tick that off my to-do list soon. Well, I must if I want to post about them along the way. And I do!

It's incredibly weird not to sew... and sad. Alas. I really hope we'll have a flat soon. Apart from sucking to the extreme and requiring more complicated logistics the current situation would force us to place all our stuff in storage for at least a month - no sewing machine for weeks! Despite my current lack of enthusiasm I can't imagine that. Not to mention that my husband will stay at his sister's whilst I remain here and stay with mine.

Hopefully I'll find at least a bit of time and energy to prepare the quilt for binding and cut more hexie shapes to keep me busy during the hiatus. I probably should keep my yarn and needles on me, rather than in a box in storage, too.

I'm physically exhausted so I'm off for a hot bath and a long nap which will hopefully improve my mood. And to end on a happier note, my sister and I have ordered yardage for her chair cushions plus some more for my stash - to get the most out of the shipping, obviously, not to satisfy my habit. There's hope!

  1. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling so well! Sounds like a lot on your plate at the moment! (Are you sure there's not a connection between not sewing and feeling ill?! hehe). Hope you get some time for a bit of creativity - always good for stress. And best of luck flat hunting!

  2. Oh I am so sorry you are going through such a rough time it the moment. I will be keeping my fingers crossed that you find a flat really really soon! It would not be fun starting married life living separately.

  3. Oh my goodness, you sound like me! So busy!!! Good luck on your flat hunt, I know my fiance and I had a terrible time finding our first house, lots of bad luck, but in the end we ended up with something we both think is just wonderful.
