W.i.P. - Going Away/Home Soon

Eek, only three more sleeps! Taking the train to my love on Saturday. I so can't wait to take him into my arms again. Da-da-da-daa da-da-da-da-da da-da-da-daa da-da-da-da-da-daaaaaaa da-da-daaaaa da-da-da-da-da-da-da daaaa daaaa. Yep, it's the final countdown!

He's been living between and out of boxes for nearly three weeks now. Can't expect him to unpack much whilst working full time, can't expect him to feel at home in that mess, either. I'm so glad my sister has offered to come along and help us settle in quickly rather than unpack as we go.

Anyway, let's forget about the move for a moment. Do you remember my tin?

I've been basting nearly all of them whilst watching Horrible Histories - my husband and are enthralled with the show - with my lovely hosts. We've got another season to go, so they should all be done in time to keep my hands busy on the train and then on our sofa with a nice glass of red. So looking forward to that scenario, too.

Alas, no progress has been made on the Viking baby quilt. I didn't have the leisure (and state of mind) to hand quilt. The baby's due in a little under a month now which is still ample of time to finish the beauty. Right?

So, without further ado, here are my

Stats for the Week

The Move  - Unpacking is upon us!

Ongoing Projects - 4
Viking Baby quilt -  more quilting needed
EPP hexies - 29 finished flowers + tons basted
Polaroid blocks Tote - will it ever get made?
EPP parallelograms/stars

Planning Stage - 4
Chair cushions for my sister - yardage has arrived
Yoshi quilt- need to order black yardage and batting
Wedding Anniversary quilt
Cushions for my sil - I think she ordered some lovely Ink & Spindle a few weeks ago

Back onto moving, a whole bunch of troubles with moving are...telephone companies. They've not yet got us on the net and might not for a while. Typical, sure, and still... Major boooooo! So, unfortunately, I might not be posting news for a bit. I have, however, prescheduled a few Skirts on Sunday to keep this place alive and will be back sooner or later to let you know I'm alive. Answering comments should be delayed after Friday but won't be forgotten.

Granted, I'm still sad to leave many people behind but I'm all excited now.

Happy sewing!


  1. Aargh! Now I've got bad 80's music going round in my head!!!
    Those three days will fly by! Have a great time together.

  2. Yay! Not long now! Hope the move goes smoothly - how nice it will be to settle into your own place with the hubby!

  3. Yippeee, 3 more sleeps is nothing, you have a fabulous time when you get there, you surely do deserve it!

  4. You have persevered so well Mareen...and done all that packing! I am purging before I start packing next month. All the best for setting things up at your new place. Big job.

  5. Yay, you've almost made it through! Good luck getting everything unpacked and set up :)
