Lonely for my sewing room

Ah, the trials of moving. The DH and I are working hard to get the house ready for the market. It's a small house, so I adopted the dining room as my "studio". Of course, it really should be a real dining room when the house is visited by potential buyers. So all of the sewing furniture cabinets and piles of fabric and notions have to go to the storage unit. I'm lost and wander solefully around the house. BUT - yea! there is a "but" - there is still quilting in my life.

The local senior center hosts a little quilting group - we call it Quilt! Quilt! Stitch and Gab. I have my back-up machine stored in my roll-around, along with essential tools and a project. I'm making blocks for Operation Valor. Easy to tote along - just a few fat quarters and some neutral thread and I'm in business! It isn't enough to satisfy me for the whole week, but it helps.

So here's to those wonderful rolling sewing machine totes, a portable project, and the comfort of laughing with my special quilting friends.

We are in the middle of a remodel at our house so like you, my sewing room is packed and in storage. I hope for your sake that the sell and move happen quickly.

I know what you are going through. My husband was in the military and we moved a lot. The new home wasnt just right until I had my place to quilt.
